This 0.6 mile one-way trail (1.2 out-and-back) leads down to the Rock House cave at Hocking Hills State Park, Ohio. The trail also runs alongside the rock house cliffs before heading back up to the parking lot. You'll find waterfalls trickling down on both sides of the rock house cave formation.

In the middle of the trail is the rock house - a cave that's about 15-20 feet deep and about 200 feet long. The cave has large openings facing outward from the cliff side so you can enter it in various points along this trail.

It's definitely a unique trail and a must-visit at Hocking Hills State Park if you're in the area.

Pets are not allowed on this trail.

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!
