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 (Founder & Admin). As the Founder, main contributor, and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my trips with over-detailed write-ups for fun on a volunteer basis and I believe that public trail information should be available to everyone.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including hiking , mapping , writing , and publishing new trails with high-quality content... along with building new features, moderating, site maintainance, and app development for iOS and Android . I simply ask that if you find MyHikes' trail guides helpful to please consider becoming a Supporter to help keep the site, iOS, and Android apps available to everyone.

Supporters unlock website and in-app perks with a one-time payment of $25 (you renew) 😎👍. Or you can simply make a Donation of your choice without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing - both quick and free 🎉

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike!️
