This Hike In Ohio Will Give You An Unforgettable Experience

It’s no secret that Ohio is full of beautiful hiking trails, secret nature spots and state parks just waiting to be explored. There is one state park, however, that offers an unforgettable hiking experience, breathtaking views and photo opportunities you simply won’t find anywhere else in the state.

Hocking Hills State Park is arguably Ohio’s most beloved state park, where waterfalls, caves, unique rock formations and hiking trails abound. The park features several things to do (including zip-lining), beautiful cabins to stay in and what is quite possibly the best hiking spot in the state: Old Man’s Cave. Popular, must-see landmarks along the Old Man’s Cave area trails include Cedar Falls, Old Man’s Cave, Upper and Lower Falls, the Sphinx Head, Ash Cave and the Devil’s Bathtub.

Trails within the park are about a mile to a mile and a half long, and take an estimated hour to an hour and half to complete. To view specific trail maps with exact distances and estimated times of completion, click here.
