Beautiful scenery and cedar pines!

Very easy short hike along a small stream into a beautiful ravine with high rock cliffs and a small waterfall.

Challenging uphill at the beginning with lots of stairs depending on which direction you go. We went clockwise, entering the trail from the left, and definitely got our heart rates up. After the steep uphill, the trail is relatively flat with some tricky footing. Some nice views and a good workout.

Nothing to special for the length you have to hike. Suspension bridge was pretty cool but could have skipped this one if you are in a time crunch visiting Hocking Hills

If you start the loop going counter clockwise, you will get the great overlooks in the first half of the hike (if you turned around at this point and went back, you wouldn't miss any other views but some pretty good wooded scenery). The waterfall can be heard, but it is completely over grown and cannot be seen from the rim trail. This trail is less crowded than others in the area, and does not allow dogs on the trail. Unfortunately, the second half of the trail is VERY close to a fairly busy road, kind of destroying some of the peacefulness of the hike.

Great views from the top. First hike in this section, but won't be the last. Steps part if the way up, with roots and rocks the rest of the way, but not bad!

beautiful easy hike with a beautiful surprise at the end.

Absolutely gorgeous trail, 100x better than the Gorge Trail

Honestly surprised to see concrete sidewalk for 75% of this trail, would have thought Old Man's Cave would have been first for that, the only reason I gave it any stars is because of the white clay deposit down by the lower falls that you can wet down and smear on your hands to do a more natural "rock signing" with hand prints or initials instead of the "frowned upon carvings"

I loved this trail! I’m definitely not the hiking type and I already wanna go back once the trees start changing color! It will be even more beautiful.

Cool space, very easy hike with great accessibility, which explained then numbers when I went. Would recommend to those in the area of the neighboring trails that are abundant there.

New to hiking and this by far is a must do trail very awesome trail . Awesome views as well !

This was a great short walk. Very easy and a lot to see. I would totally do it again.

Nice, easy, scenic trail to start a day of hiking

I am very much a beginner and this hike was amazing. Scary if you have a fear of heights because you're literally walking next to 100-200 ft drop-offs, but the views were breathtaking. A lot of stairs and ups and downs so it was an excellent workout. We will definitely be back!

It was a good walk.. I don't recommend kids on these paths to close to the edges. Made me nervous at some parts of the hike.

This an ecosystem that has survived several millennia since the last ice sheet retreated. It's unique to the midwest and supports trees, moss, lichen, and wildlife more common to Canada.

Once on the ridge, mostly flat hiking with enjoyable views. Just need to be cautious of ridge edge.

Views were pretty. BUT at least one quarter of the hike was right at cliffs edge. I mean the edge of the trail was the sheer drop off. Scary. Would definitely not want to do with younger children. For me, couldn't enjoy views as I was too busy focused on my feet.
