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.

Easy hike with beautiful scenery. On a hot day, wading in the water at Ash Cave is a beautiful thing.

Pretty short hike in late afternoon. The cave was great, and we love the tiny fall from the top of the cave. Met a group of ppl having their wedding here. Pretty romantic.

Absolutely my favorite trail in Hocking Hills. We went in mid-March and it lightly snowed making everything even more beautiful. It is an easy trail that is paved about 80% of the way. The upper rim trail is not paved but is easy as well.

Beautiful, easy, not too crowded. Went in late December. The falls were starting to freeze and were gorgeous!

Easy trail with a great view at the end. Definitely recommend to put this on your must see list when visiting the Hocking Hills area.

My first trip to Ash Cave. We wanted an easy walk after finishing our hike at the Whispering Cave trail, so we took the accessible trail which was beautiful, lots of things to look at on the way. I have been to Old Man's, Rock House and Whispering Cave and this is the most impressive of them all. The 100 ft waterfall was beautiful and we were able to play in the stream. The cave was busy but not overly crowded. Someone was using the cave for their wedding at the time and there was also someone who had set up a xylophone and was playing (which made for an interesting sound throughout the cave). Still plenty of room to wander around. Can't wait to go back and check it out this winter when the waterfall is frozen.
