Hocking-Hills is a popular state park in the Allegheny Plateau Region of southeast Ohio. This scenic area features cliffs, gorges, rock shelters and waterfalls. The state park is surrounded by the Hocking State Forest. The 2,356-acre Hocking Hills State Park is divided into five separate sections; Old Man's Cave, Cedar Falls, Ash Cave, Cantwell Cliffs and Rock House. Old Man's Cave is a narrow, deep gorge with waterfalls; Cedar Falls is a larger waterfalls located south of Old Man's Cave; Ash Cave is a large rock shelter with a smaller waterfall; Cantwell Cliffs is a broad gorge with a unique stone stairway; and Rock House is a cliffed area with a broad rock shelter. There is evidence in the Hocking Hills of the ancient Adena culture having used the caves and recesses more than 7,000 years ago. The Wyandot, Delaware and Shawnee Indian tribes lived in the area in the mid-1700s, and their name for the river in the park "Hockhocking" is where the park gets its' name. There are 9 hiking trails in Hocking Hills State Park that range from easy to difficult. Most trails, however, are considered "moderate." Portions of the Buckeye Trail also goes through the park and state forest. There are five picnic areas, one in each of the separate areas mentioned above. Other things to do include horseback riding, canoeing, wildlife viewing and scenic drives. The area surrounding the park is filled with small towns, museums, craft shops and antique shops. Also nearby is Conkles Hollow, a state nature preserve that features scenic geologic formations and rare plants.
