ASH CAVE GORGE

CEDAR FALLS

In the southernmost reaches of Hocking Hills is Ash Cave - beyond doubt the most spectacular feature of the entire park. Ash Cave is the largest, most impressive recess cave in the state.

This remote, primitive chasm is laden with hemlock and bound by steep rock walls and their accompanying grottos and waterfalls. It is a wild and lonely but spectacularly beautiful place.

OLD MAN'S CAVE

Thousands of years of erosion birthed this incredible cave, where various forms of plant life thrive. According to legend, Richard Rowe lived briefly in the cave in 1796, resulting in the name Old Man's Cave.

ROCK HOUSE

Rock House is unique in the Hocking Hills' region, as it is the only true cave in the park. It is a tunnel-like corridor situated midway up a 150-foot cliff of Blackhand sandstone.

I want to join this retreat, but do not want to travel alone... 

A lot of people feel this way. As someone who has traveled the globe alone, I encourage others to connect with the joy of solo traveling. Moments of solitude can lead to precious moments in which we connect with our heart's truth. However, we are here to support your journey! While we cannot promise successful results... if you prefer or wish to travel, with someone, we will do our best to connect you with another retreat guest.
