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.
This was amazing! As with my other review of Cantwell Cliffs Loop, these are shorter trails but views unlike anything I have seen. It was a short hike, but challenging as it was chilly, wet and slippery on rocks. It was very muddy which was a bit tricky near edges, so just be careful.
This is just Grandma Gatewood minus Ash Cave Trail. We set out to do the entire thing this time, but it was muddy and slippery in spots, so we tired out and decided to complete Ash Cave, which we saw last time.
This is still one of my most favorite trails. It's so much fun and a great work out with the most amazing views. I love Cedar Falls. They are beautiful this time of year.
Great trial! Beautiful, and a work out! signs got a little confusing to follow!
Wonderful- even in the winter!
Did this one years ago when I was still married. Was a wonderful trail and one I enjoyed a great deal with the family.
Some of the best hiking in Ohio.
A pretty good trail, heavily used on weekends for sure so pick your time well. The trail is easy to follow. The first 1/4 is what the trail is known for great rock formations and a large amount of well done park trails... here is where you will find most of the crowd. After the second mile the crowds thin a bit, but you will never feel alone. At 2.5 miles we went off trail and climbed up the ridge face to the upper trail which shortened the hike by 3 miles due to our time constraints. The trail is very well marked and easy to follow. The Lake is a very cool area to visit as well. Overall the hike is a good one and worth taking.
