The Buckeye Trail Is The Single Most Dangerous Hike In All Of Ohio

Hocking Hills State Park, located in Logan, Ohio, has 16 hiking trails and the statewide Buckeye Trail is the most dangerous trail in the park. It’s also arguably the most dangerous hike in all of Ohio. The year 2013 saw three fatal falls from the cliffs in Hocking Hills, 2017 saw one, and 2019 saw at least three more. Many people wander off-trail here to get a closer look at the giant cliff faces that can be found throughout the park. However, these cliffs are often slippery, and the many accidents that have occurred here to make this the most dangerous hike in Ohio.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.

While this may sound scary, Buckeye Trail and Hocking Hills State Park really are a beautiful park that you should visit. Just be sure to stay on the trail and away from the cliffs!
