Another must see while in the area. We were not able to take the upper level walk, but the lower lever is beautiful. Nice paved walkway back in about 3/4 of a mile in and then back out. Would visit again.

We did the bottom half and loved it! It was a gorgeous day and less crowded than Old Man's Cave, so we were able to actually look at all the formations and take in the nature. We for sure plan to come back to do the outer rim next fall!

This was an excellent hike! My family of five ( 40yo x2, 13yo, 11yo, 9yo) did both the 2.5mile rim trail and the 1/2-1mile gorge trail. Both were enjoyable and interesting. Along the rim trail, the exposed tree roots and stairs at the beginning and end could make this difficult for some, but we found it to be a very nice time.

Please note the park is temporarily CLOSED due to renovations to facilities and paving the parking lot. Even if people are parking on the side of the road, DO NOT ENTER THE PARK.

The easy part is the paved walk through the gorge. It's about 1.5 miles roundtrip but very easy. There's a small dirt trail at the end that takes you to the overhang. If you feel like a strenuous walk, try the rim trail. It's a climb up stairs and terrain to get to the top, but once there, the views are amazing. Be careful, there are parts of the trail that are narrow and only a few steps from a straight drop 200ft down. Strava tracked a 684ft elevation gain and 6.74 miles with the gorge and rim trail combined. They are closing the trail in November to enlarge the parking area. The regular bathrooms are closed but there are port-a-johns on site. Note: all the trails in Hocking Hills have been converted to 1-way trails due to COVID. The directions are clearly marked.
