It is more crowded than I would personally like, but it is very well kept and a beautiful park!

The views were amazing, breathtaking and otherwise too good for words. We had a blast climbing and I always take the more challenging route. That being said, there are a few areas where it is a bit more difficult and dangerous and I rolled an ankle! Thankfully I wear great boots. Thanks to James Sunyak for suggesting the start at Cedar Falls. It was much less crowded and also more challenging at the beginning when we were full energy and a more relaxed walk as we got tired. It is holiday weekend so the place was packed, but we came for fun, adventure and beautiful scenery, not seclusion.

As a avid hiker. Hocking Hills State Park is one of the most beautiful and scenic parks I have been to yet.

Hiked the blue trail, old mans cave to cedar falls. Did not expect the level of difficulty which included navigating over slippery rocks as well as thru muddy inclines. There is a Steep rock to climb over in last half of trail. We opted to climb up and down the alternate hill instead. There was also an area of hands and knees climbing. Although the sights were pretty, I was too nervous about falling and being injured to enjoy it. Would have appreciated a warning sign at beginning of trail. I would not do this trail again. There is no cell phone reception or any park rangers in sight.

By the way, the entire hike from Ash to OMC then back to Ash is 12-13 miles.

Ash Cave-Cedar Falls-OMCave, then back to Ash Cave is a gorgeous hike, even better if you can carefully meander. Rose Hollow is striking, as well. I'm sure a piece of my heart resides in this place. -Namaste
