So beautiful after the rain. Like a lush rainforest! Quiet in the early morning. Not crowded since there was a detour to get there but so worth it! Our favorite hike in Hocking Hills!

The gorge trail is short and easy. The scenery is fantastic as well at the waterfalls. We also did the upper rim which was much less exciting. I'd probably skip the upper rim next time in lieu of another trail.

We hiked the upper trail (~2.5 miles) and thoroughly enjoyed the serenity and the views. It is definitely not a trail for families with small children - there are significant roots along the path, boulders (use caution if it is wet), and the cliff edges...More

The Rim and Gorge trails at Conkles Hollow are two very different experiences. The rim trail requires a somewhat strenuous initial ascent before leveling out at the rim with several rock gorge overlooks. This is NOT a trail for small children or even older ones...More

Hiked this area on the first night of our vacation. Great views, especially loved the rim trail. Little challenging, but the views are worth it.

The handicap trail is easily accessible. However, it ends just before the waterfalls. It was fine for me and the older kids but the younger ones couldn't see the falls due to the climb. The whole trail is about 2.5 miles. The walk to the...More

Of all the hiking we did, this was the best place to do it! So much to look at the whole way, and it’s paved most the way.

the gorge trail isn't too bad and is one of the better area trails for kids or seniors for the most part, haven't done the rim trail yet but it looks like it can be pretty steep and the gorge is deeper than I thought...More

I’m still paying the price for this hike but would do it again. It is a great mix of seeing rock formations, danger, and beauty. Stretch before you go and maybe add a week of stair-climbing into your routine to prep! Kids can did faster...More

Yes, and the area is beautiful. You can't get all the way back to the falls, but there are little outcrops along the way and beautiful wildflowers if you are into those.

Cockle's Hollow is very flat through the first 9/10 of the trail, then gets a bit rocky at the very end.
