Ash Cave - 1/4 Mile (Wheelchair Accessible)

Ash cave is located on the Southern end of the Hocking Hills park and is one of the more popular elopement locations. Ash Cave holds the record for being the largest and most impressive natural rock recess in the state of Ohio. The cave creates a large 'U' shape around a pool, where water cascades down to from above, and is easily accessible. The cave measures 700 feet from end to end, 100 feet deep from the rear cave wall to its front edge with the rim rising 90 feet tall, creating one of the most beautiful natural chapels on earth.

Upper Falls at Old Man's Cave - 1 mile

One of the most popular of all the Hocking Hills hiking areas is Old Man's Cave. The Upper Falls is also located here and is another popular wedding spot. Old Man's Cave derives its name from the hermit Richard Rowe who lived in the large recess cave of the gorge. His family moved to the Ohio River Valley around 1796 from the Cumberland Mountains of Tennessee to establish a trading post. He and his two dogs traveled through Ohio along the Scioto River in search of game and happened upon the Hocking Hills region. He soon called this location 'home' by building staircases and shelters to live out the rest of his days in these caves.
