A trip around the rim of Cantwell Cliffs is one of the more difficult tours in the Hocking Hills parks. There are some sharp climbs and descents, washed out bridges, fallen trees blocking trails, and well worn steps. These restrictions make this hike one of the least visited areas. It turns out that if you take on the challenge, you'll get to experience a "No Waiting" tour of natural features in each of the other parks in the area.

It's a little off the beaten path (Old Mans Cave is actually very close) but definitely worth a visit. Parking isn't as robust but shouldn't be an issue. Went with my 6yr old and we had a great time.

This park is extremely beautiful. The cliff was much bigger than I was expecting. It's not too long and only took about 45 minutes

Honestly, I don't think people talk about this enough in relation to the Hocking County. I simply decided to stop by after visiting the Rockbridge and was simply blown away at the size of this cliff. The trails were well maintained, and offered some more moderate parts compared to others, but all together this was a fantastic trip out here.
