Hocking Hills State Park
The main attraction for most visitors to the area is Hocking Hills State Park, which offers a wonderful array of hiking trails that are free and open to the public from dawn to dusk, all year round. In winter, you’ll come across gorgeous sights like frozen waterfalls and incredible icicles as you explore this fascinating region. Since there are so many trails to choose from, it’s up to you whether you want to take a half mile hike through just one cave, or a full day’s hike where you visit several!
The most popular cave in the area is known as Old Man’s Cave, for the trapper who lived here alone with his dog in the late 1700s. This cave is located in a stunning 150-foot-deep gorge carved into the sandstone, where you can actually see different layers of the Earth on top of one another. Several waterfalls wind through this little canyon, and then of course, there’s the cave itself, beneath which the trapper is actually buried. You can choose to view this canyon from the rim above or explore the inside floor; the latter is a more popular option, so try it first thing in the morning to avoid crowds. Other nice caves to check out in the park include the large Ash Cave, the vast Whispering Cave, and the fascinating Rock House, which might just make you want to move right in!
