Top 10 Things to Do

Visit Old Man's Cave
The most popular of all the Hocking areas is Old Man's Cave, located on State Route 664. Here at the Upper Falls, the Grandma Gatewood Trail begins its six-mile course connecting three of the park's areas.
Stay in a Cabin
'Cabins' range from small peaceful romantic cottages to medium family-size cabins to large lodges that will accommodate multiple families. Our availability search engine can help you find the perfect place to stay quickly and easily.
Walk to Ash Cave
In the southernmost reaches of Hocking Hills is Ash Cave which is perhaps the most spectacular feature of the entire park. Ash Cave is the largest recess cave in the state.
See Cedar Falls
Cedar Falls itself is the greatest waterfall in terms of volume in the Hocking region. In the mid 1800's, a grist mill was built above the falls to utilize this water power for grinding grain.
There are canoe launches, and rentals, at Lake Hope and Lake Logan State Parks. On the Hocking River several liveries offer varying length canoe, kayak, and raft trips on the usually leasurely moving waters. A great way to spend a hot summer days. Full moon river trips are also offered during the summer months!
Ride the Ziplines
Some of the largest and most exciting ziplines in the mid west can be found here in the Hocking Hills.
Hiking Here & Hiking There
With 9 State Park and Nature Preserves, 3 State Forests, a National Forest, and local and metro parks, plus a large section of the Buckeye Trail, you simply will not run out of places to hike. Trails range from extremely rugged to as easy as the preverbial 'walk in the park'. Portions of the trails at Cedar Falls and Conkle's Hollow are marked wheelchair accessible.
During the Spring, Summer, and Fall months the campgrounds are bustling with activity. Many of the area State Parks offer camping as do wide variety of privately owned campgrounds that may be less crowded.
