Everyone in Ohio should visit these parks at least once. All of the "sites" are short and relatively easy hikes, typically less than 1 mile. Some have lots of steps. Spring or fall would be best.

It was well worth the 3 hour drive to get to the park. At the upperfalls to the lower falls it's a nice easy walk down but the way up is a little bit harder. The walk back to the parking lot had 180 physical steps. On a hot and humid day that makes for a long hike.

The park has a variety of separate. Our group went to Old Man Cave and Ash Cave. Old Man Cave is a bit of a hike down a moderately rough trail, but it is well worth the walk. Ash Cave is much easier to get to. It is huge, and at times, groups used to meet there.

I love taking my family to hocking hills. The falls are always something they love to visit. And always play in the water. The cabins are beautiful for a overnight stay as well

This park has lots to do. Maybe too much. The natural features are great if you are into hiking. We were disappointed by the campground with lack of basics. (I reviewed it separately.). Put up another campground for those who want swimming pools, fancy dining, and the like somewhere else. Staff acted tired.

Hocking Hills has some amazing hiking trails and natural wonders. Old Man's Cave, Ash Cave, Table rock, and Conkle's Hollow to name a few. Late October you will find the area lit up in brilliant reds and oranges during the leave change of the fall. You can hike for the day or camp and make a weekend out of it. There is something for all ages.

We visit hocking hills every October and again in February! Have been visiting since we were children:). An amazing place that for years was an undiscovered gem! Hocking is now very popular and can be crowded at times, but still our favorite park in the US!

We enjoyed the many beautiful spots at Hocking Hills State Park. You can spend hours hiking and exploring this park. It was an unusually hot October day when we visited. Many people brought their dogs to enjoy the hiking. There are porta potties at the parking lot which you should make use of prior to heading on the trails as there are no bathrooms out on the trail. There are some challenging spots along the hike. I would say this ranges between easy to moderate for hiking. Many families with young kids enjoying the area.

I was told to check this place out, well it is a must. Hocking Hills State Park is phenomenal. My wife and I could not believe the beauty and scenery on all the trails. There are 7 trails ranging from a short 1/4 mile hike to a 2 1/2 mile hike. Please wear a good pair of hiking shoes and take a backpack loaded with water bottles, some of the trails are rugged. There was a woman wearing sneakers she slipped on one of the trails because it was wet. It is the closet thing to being in a rain forest, it did not rain and hadn't rained in several days but the ground is very moist and the rocks can be slippery due to the fact that most of the trails are completely in the shadows of the trees. Rockhouse is a tunnel like cavern 25feet high and 200 feet long just amazing, Ash Cave is another trail that is stunning, Whispering Cave has an incredible waterfall. These are just some of the trails ta=hat took our breath away. This is an unknown place to outsiders that is well worth your time to visit and hike. Due to the difficult trails I would not recommend this for young children. This park is free.
