The Ash Cave Gorge Trail at Hocking Hills State Park, Ohio is an easy 0.4 mile one-way trail leads to one of the best natural wonders in the park - Ash Cave.

The cave is an immense rock overhang standing 90 feet fall, 700 feet long, and 100 feet in depth at some points. You feel extremely small being in Ash Cave and it's well worth a trip.

Prepare to hike 0.6 - 0.7 miles depending on which route you take. You can turn this into a 0.8 mile loop or take the Ash Cave Rim Trail back, which is 0.2 miles one-way.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller / Admin. We share trails, hikes, and backpacking trips on the interwebs for the fun of it and believe that public trail information should be free and accessible to the public.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including exploring , mapping , and publishing new trails with high-quality content, adding new site features, and site maintainance and moderating. We simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your next adventure that you consider making a small donation to help keep the site running.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes user account required) to unlock perks for as little as $0.83/month with a 1-time non-recurring payment 😎 Or you can simply Donate any amount without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing to a donation - both quick and free 😄

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike! ✌
