Hocking Hills: Old's Man's Cave to Cedar Falls

The Hocking Hills are one of the best state parks in Ohio. This week, we will hike Old Man's Cave to Cedar Falls and back. OMC has some amazing sites: the hemlocks, the waterfalls, the Sphinx, the Devil's Bathtub, and Old Man's Cave. 

We will meet at Old Man's Cave Visitor's Center. We'll hike down to see the sites, hike the Lower Gorge Trail to Cedar Falls. Then we'll take a short snack/water break, then hike the Gorge Overlook Trail back to OMC.
This is not a speed hike. Feel free to enjoy the sites and snap some pictures.


By RSVPing Yes, you agree to the Waiver of Liability listed in the Pages Section.


Carpool Info: We will meet at Kaplan College (2745 Winchester Pike, Columbus, OH) at 8:30 AM, leaving no later than 8:45. If you don't plan to drive, please bring gas money.

    who's planning for a Car pool?

  • Ryan T.

    This will be my first hike with in the group and I can't wait to do this hike. Do I need to bring anything in addition to hiking boots?

    May 15, 2014

    • Nick

      Hey Ryan---won't be able to come on this one but I have done it before. I can't recommend hiking poles enough. Besides taking thousands of pounds off of older knees over a long hike, they are great for navigating mud, rocks, stream crossings, and uneven terrain.

    About how long is this hike in miles and time if I go slower and enjoy the trail.

    May 15, 2014

  • DWIGHT S.

    Is the hike from Old Man's Cave to Ash Cave and back (first paragraph), or is it from Old Man's Cave to Cedar Falls and back (second paragraph). Do we have a choice? The Ash Cave course would be close to twice as long, wouldn't it?
