Hocking Hills provides a variety of recreational opportunities in a splendid natural setting. The 2,356-acre park has towering cliffs, waterfalls and deep hemlock-shaded gorges to lure the hiker and naturalist and serve as a backdrop to popular facilities and accommodations.

Ample parking. Bathrooms at the parking lot. Well marked and easy accessibly trail, very quick hike that would be good for children and beginners. Falls are pretty with several cute walking bridges. SOOOO crowded. Would not go on a weekend again.

Overlook mostly overgrown. "Waterfall" at the cave was just a couple of drops, hardly an actual waterfall. Heavily trafficked, but ample parking. Cave is large and less crowded than Old Man's Cave but almost as impressive. As with the rest of the area, you will have ZERO cell service.

Pros: Really amazing rock feature, short easy hike to it. LOTS of cute and well behaved dogs along the way.
Cons: Oh. My. Goodness. Sooooo crowded. Almost standing room only inside the rocks structure, to the point that it ruined the experience. Would never go on a weekend again.

My friend and I came down here for a day and did this 12-mile hike and went to see the Rockhouse afterwards! Great to do for a one day trip because you get to see a lot. Would recommend. Ash cave was my favorite spot!

Not bad, mostly natural, a lot of stairs, still pretty easy, saw a lot of dogs, upper rim trail isn't marked very well but it is maintained and well traveled

The best section of this trail is on the Grandma Gatewood/buckeye trail to cedar falls. This section is very scenic with the most “rugged” terrain. The remaining 3/4 of the trail is fairly easy with several sections covered in small gravel. This trail should not be rated hard. I would rate it easy with the section above moderate. Make sure to get there early if you are looking to hike. The amount of people on this trail can be ridiculous!

Lots of people and dogs but it was a great hike.

A fun short hike well worth checking out! I gave it four stars because it’s easy to get lost if you loop around you end up in a different parking lot. My son walked ahead (he’s 15) and ended up a mile down the road because of not being able to find where we started.
