The annual Hocking Hills Winter Hike will take place Saturday January 21st. The hike covers about six miles from the parks campground to Ash Cave.
The hike is a wonderful time to see southeastern Ohio’s caves, waterfalls and streams.
This is the one time that the hikers may wish for cold or inclement weather because the cold and snow create a beautiful backdrop for the hike.
The hike passes the spring filled Rose Lake and the falls and caves.
At Cedar Falls the midway point of the hike hikers can lunch on bean soup and cornbread with a hot beverage.
From Cedar Falls the walk will continue on to Ash Cave.
At the end of the hike participants will be driven back to Old Man’s Cave.
Hikers can assemble anytime between 9 and 11 a.m. There is no charge but donations are always welcome because of budget cuts.
If we do not get some cold and snow for the hike do not fear because it is still a beautiful hike. Five thousand hikers enjoyed the Winter Hike last year. Come and visit.
