Had a blast in the snow!

An incredibly beautiful walk through the gorge and on the rim. It is busy from the park office to the old mans cave then all the non-hikers turn back. Once you are past the old man’s cave the number of hikers decreases immensely. It’s a beautiful, peaceful walk that has only a few moderate areas of hiking. I will definitely be back.

Beautiful!!!

We always skipped Cantwell Cliffs because I thought it was a climbing area. We went today for the first time and loved it! We did both trails and will definitely recommend them to fellow hikers. A good place to bring trekking poles and waterproof shoes. Lots of weathered/steep stairs to navigate and several stream crossings.

Pretty but very crowded

I just discovered this trail last weekend! It is now my favorite in Hocking Hills. It isn’t crowded, and the views are breathtaking!
It was super muddy, due to the heavy rains.
I did take my 3 year old, and baby carrier is a must as you are scaling the edges of cliffs.

Great Family hike. Dog friendly. Endless photo opportunities!

Perfect!

Great trail, I little wet this time of year. There are also a few downed trees between Cedar Falls and Ash Cave.

Probably my favorite hike in HH! Amazing views, particularly in the fall. Lots of topography changes making the hike very interesting and fun. We took the steps up and it was a fun workout. Go early because the trail get very busy!

Great set of trails! Stunning views of sandstone cliffs, multiple waterfalls, a gorge view and gorge trails, a tunnel into the sandstone, and of course, the cave. Be aware construction is going on at the Visitor Center (Dec '18) and a couple exit trails are closed as a result, plus construction noise sucks.

Easiest and possibly one of the most beautiful spots in the Hocking Hills trail system. Trail is paved and handicap accessible. there is a small loop option for the fully-abled, to go into the cave and behind the waterfall. Have already been here a few times, even took my cat in his harness and leash - he loved it too.

Beautiful hike, but be aware that if you start at the Cedar Falls parking lot trail head, there are a LOT of steps with varying heights, from 3" to 12". They begin and end the hike. I would rate this trail moderate based on that.

Another day exploring the “this is not a trail” (s) with my person.Great hike and great captures☺️ 

One of my favorite spots in Hocking Hills. They added a concrete wall inside of the formation to prevent you from climbing out on the edge now but you can easily hop over it. There’s an easy way there, and “difficult”. Views from here in the fall are spectacular!

Sooo I loved this hike! I’m in my thirties.. very do-able. However, my two hiking buds were in their 60s annnd this was a bit strenuous for them. 100% recommend trekking poles for someone who isn’t as able- bodied or wants that extra support. I would describe it as light rock crawling lol ... muddy, sometimes slick. I’d say it was about 6 miles round trip. The trail was beautiful though! I just probably wouldn’t have chosen this trail if I knew it was going to be as challenging for those I was with. I’d also leave the pups at home... ours pull way too much for this one. I’ll be back better prepared :) and wear better footwear than tennis shoes.. I doubt this area is ever dry.

Easy hike and pretty short out and back. Definitely a different feel from Old Man's Cave gorge. The gorge is narrower and greener in my opinion. Well worth the hike and the waterfall at the end is really nice.

A busy, short trail. Lots of kids. The rock house is a must see. Easy hike. Squeeze this hike into your day!

This was a great trail ... 5 hours and done

I wouldn’t say this was the easiest trail as we took our toddlers and there were a lot of steep stairs but we managed. It is fairly busy but the views are amazing.

It was a beautiful trail. Took our toddlers. Was easy enough for them and they really enjoyed the waterfall.

Very beautiful. Small hills

Steps and steps and more steps! Loved it
