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 independently-owned platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. MyHikes has no investors, no shareholders, no goal to profit, and is owned and operated by one person. We share trails on the interwebs for the fun of it and put a ton of time tracking, writing about, and publishing new trails each month.

But it takes a lot of money, time, and effort (including espresso shots) to run MyHikes. Our content is and always will be free to use, including interactive trail maps and elevation charts, pictures from the trail, and dope points-of-interest like vistas, overlooks, waterfalls, backcountry campsites, abandoned structures, and more...

So we simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your outdoor excursions that you consider making a small donation to help keep our lights on.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes account required) when donating to unlock perks. Or you can Donate without an account.

Either way, thanks for checking out MyHikes and have a great hike!
