We’ve hiked a lot of the trails in the Hocking Hills region and took the paved gorge path through Conkles Hollow. While the paved path had less major features to see during the easy hike, our 5 year old discovered that if you continue to hike farther than the paved trail, you come to a really unique area at the bottom of a few small waterfalls. That was by far the coolest part of the whole trail so I suggest continuing on just a bit farther to find a unique treasure!

I drove an hour because everything said that this trail was open to be greeted with the gates closed. So disappointed.

An easy, accessible hike but was so beautiful with the elements of snow and ice. Very peaceful and welcoming walk on virtually flat land. Lots of visitors, but comfortable. Was really fond of this short little trek.

Beautiful and chilly with an easy path. The waterfall at the end flowed hard with plenty of water, ice, and icicles.

Beautiful trail. Most of it is paved. Go beyond the paved trail at the end to see a waterfall.

Wow what a gorgeous place! An excellent last-trail-of-the-day due to it being mostly paved & flat, but don't go too close to sundown, you won't want to miss the incredible views!

A beautiful trail with breathtaking views! Also breathtaking, is how close you are to sheer dropoffs! I wouldn't recommend for people afraid of heights.

You feel completely immersed in another world while down in the gorge. My kids enjoyed the end of the trail where the waterfall would've been if it hadn't been so dry this summer.

Nice trail for accessibility. Very smooth, 5 foot wide sidewalk until the last small bit.

Perfect short hike that shows the beauty of Hocking Hills.

LOVED this trail, it was our favorite hike in Hocking Hills! The greenery was beautiful. Make sure you go to the end of the trail, it is worth the little extra distance.

easy accessible concrete trail most of the way, then dirt trail with some stones to hop on leading to waterfall. It was dry when i visit and I guess most of the summer.

It was an easy, very beautiful walk. The travel up to the water is a better view than the end. So enjoy it! Also not as crowded as the other hikes around the park.

Paved first half... Then as the gorge starts narrowing the trial gets prettier... Half mile long basically flat, Little Rock scrambling at spots.. Waterfall at end of trail just a trickle now in mid August.
