  • Clean bathroom, well maintained wood plank/concrete pathway for the lower falls trail. Would be safe for a stroller or wheelchair in my opinion on the lower trail.

  • One of my favorite Hocking Hills Destinations! Great place for Older and young ones to hike. Stay in the Gorge for a relaxing hike. Do the rim trail for a challenge and excitement. Be careful on the Rim trail it's dangerous. Beautiful place!
