This Just Might Be The Most Beautiful Hike In All Of Ohio
We all know that Ohio is full of beautiful places to explore and hiking trails that will leave you in awe.
There is one trail, however, that offers an unforgettable hiking experience, breathtaking views and photo opportunities you simply won’t find anywhere else in the world. If you’ve yet to hike the Old Man’s Cave trail at Hocking Hills State Park in Logan, you’re truly missing out. It’s arguably the most beautiful hiking trail in Ohio—and it will make you feel like you’re temporarily living in a Lord of the Rings film. At approximately one mile in length, this gorgeous trail takes about an hour to complete, so it’s perfect for a day hike you can take your time exploring.
