#pictorial :: Hocking Hills State Park

Hocking Hills State Park is a non-contiguous state park in the Hocking Hills region of Hocking County, Ohio, United States; it is contiguous with the Hocking State Forest. Within the park are several spectacular rock formations.

The park contains seven separate sections: Ash Cave, Cantwell Cliffs, Cedar Falls, Conkle’s Hollow, Old Man’s Cave, Rock House and Whispering Cave. Ash Cave, Old man’s Cave and Whispering Cave are each examples of recess caves. Cantwell Cliffs and Conkle’s Hollow each feature a narrow, deep gorge; Rock House is a cliffed area with a rock shelter; Cedar Falls is a large waterfall, but each of the park areas except Rock House contain waterfalls.

Hocking Hills State Park is one of the best places you can go for a trip or vacation. The best scenery and hiking you can get. The last time I was there, people from all over the place were there. It may be in Ohio, but a lot of people from around the world make the trip. It’s definitely one of Earth’s great formations and place to get in touch with nature. Great hiking and photography, camping, and local attractions to go to, as well. 🙂
