I'm an avid hiker/explorer and this place is a blast! Make sure you have atleast a full day to enjoy this magical place!

beautiful scenery and a lot to explore and see. I'd rate this as more moderate but there a quite a few stairs and inclines. Paths are marked and clear.

Great hike. Started around 730 and the place was EMPTY. By the time I left it was packed. Glad I got to experience this gorgeous park. Still can’t believe it’s located in Ohio!

This park is very well maintained and the trails are well marked! We couldn’t record our hike because my phone battery is not stellar, but we hiked 7.6 miles with a combination of 8, 1, 5, 4, & 7. It was a super hot day and we were pleased to find that the Nature Center on the south end of the park is air conditioned with a lovely bird viewing room. We saw all of the falls but I think Tunnel Falls was the best! I liked Little Clifty Falls as well. When the map says the trail is rugged, they’re not kidding. The ruggedness is a great challenge, but be prepared to climb up and down on rock and roots quite a bit. Also, people who are afraid of heights should maybe stay on trail 2, because there are many drop-offs next to the trails up on the ridge. Overall we had a challenging, but rewarding, day in the outdoors!

Okay trail. I used it for running and got lost which is probably my own fault but the trails were a bit overgrown and very technical. I would recommend this trail for hiking and enjoying nature rather than running. Very beautiful had I taken the time to enjoy it.

Loved trail 5. Tunnel Falls was my favorite waterfalls of the day, Caution on the rocks leading up to the tunnel as they are slick. The tunnel is closed to foot traffic from fall to spring. Trail 5 goes around the tunnel also. South end of trail has a 153 step staircase that will give you a great quad workout. There is also a leg of the trail to take you to the creek.

Great trails! Beautiful scenery!

The trail is pretty crowded in the beginning and cave areas but otherwise it was nice. Wife and I enjoyed the buckeye trail section the most.

Too many bikers. Not a lot of scenery. Was a great trail to get the heart rate up but had to share with a lot bikers and runners. Went on a Saturday morning though so that may have had something to do with it.

Absolutely beautiful! My 4 year old son saw his first Monarch butterfly of the season on this hike. Lots of fun.

The trail was ok. I wish it was marked better. The cave was beautiful. I went early so that was enjoyable! Towards the end there were TONS of people out hiking! I would say I enjoyed Mohican better but I do like the caves.

Trail was rated appropriately. There’s not a lot to look at though and there were only bikes on the trail. No other hikers. I wouldn’t recommend for hiking when there lots of other great trails in the area that are for hikers only.

Very hot day! The trail and hot spots were crowded, but it did not bother the beauty! A nice moderate hike.

Another great trail in the hocking hills area. A little crowded at the start of the trail but in between the points of interest it’s a nice quiet trail

It’s gorgeous, but I have yet to catch it when it’s not overly busy.

I think you have the wrong trail in the map. Millington trail is the red blazes. I know this, because I passed the green trail twice like the devil’s hopyard map says. I think it might be the green trail or blue. The trail listed which is green is the woodcutters trail and the blue it’s just blue. It’s easy to see when you look at the devil’s hopyard map they provide. Great trail I just wanted to bring attention to this and make it so others weren’t as confused as I was. It says that it is connected to the orange trail, but it goes out to the left of the map out of any crossing. Or maybe it’s labeled wrong as the upper loop of the orange trail where you go down a bit to the end of the second loop go back up and skip devil’s oven. Just fallow the red blazes after the waterfall.

Easy trail until you hike up to devils oven. Which has a big incline. Brought a dog and the dog could keep up.

Second time going here. Absolutely my favorite. It's a work out climbing up the steep inclines. We
saw tons of red spotted purple butterflies and some turkey! my Wife almost stepped on a garden snake. lol

definitely will return to this hidden gem, especially in the fall. the steep inclines lead to spectacular views and the trail riding along the ridge was an unexpected treat.

much easier than moderate. easy plus, maybe.

One section of trail isn't marked very well, but other than that is was a great hike. Awesome view.

Great trail with some good views! With the exception of climbing over two 4-5 foot rock bluffs and one steep downhill climb the rest of the trail was moderate.

Nothing better in this area. It can even be turned into a loop and backpacked if you talk to the rangers ahead of time;

I would recommend starting from Ash Cave, head to Cedar Falls, then take the rim trail to Old Man’s Cave, and returning by way of the gorge trail

The directions to the trail didn't bring us to the trail head. We pulled into the picnic area and went to the end. Go over the bridge and stay straight. As you ascend the mountain you will see the red markings. Trail was a bit muddy

Beautiful view of the lake !! Went out with my 8 and 4 yr old . They loved it . However there were some points that it was difficult to follow the trail, I think it needs better signals of the trail. At some point I thought I was lost, kept going around in circles 

Beautiful scenery but pretty congested with people. Might be better early in the morning or in the evening.

Second time on this stretch of Perimeter Trail, spotted a Bald Eagle, an owl, couple of ground hogs, squirrels and plenty of birds. Another nice hike.

Lake was beautiful! View was worth the hike!
