From gorges to waterfalls, and rock shelters to cliffs, natural beauty abounds in Hocking Hills State Park. The massive park is split into 6 areas, named for their top features: Old Man’s Cave, Cedar Falls, Ash Cave, Cantwell Cliffs, Lake Logan and Rock House.
The most popular, Old Man’s Cave, is a deep gorge named for one of its early inhabitants, recluse Richard Rowe who made the cave his home in the late 1700s. Many companies offer organized activities such as canoeing, horseback riding, and zip-lining. You can also choose to make use of the many hiking trails and fishing spot.
And let’s not forget Conkles Hollow nature preserve is one of the most spectacular features within the Hocking Hills region. Its sheer cliffs of Black Hand sandstone rise nearly 200 feet above the valley floor.
The deep, cool gorge, which is only 100 feet wide in places and is considered by some to be the deepest in Ohio, has numerous waterfalls cascading over its sandstone cliffs. The Lower Gorge trail was recently redesigned to accommodate visitors of all abilities.
The cliff tops with their magnificent overlooks and the quiet gorge beneath offer visitors an opportunity to explore different habitats, each with its own unique plant and animal communities. Conkles hollow is one of the few nature preservers in the Hocking Hills
