Loved this walk, very cool down by the water, and no sun can break through the trees. Many large... read more

Holy Cow. This place is amazing for being in the Midwest. It was stunning. Photos can't capture the beauty and what it is like to walk through there. But don't go there, you'll spoil it for me when I return.

An enchanting nature preserve with a split personality. Lower trail is easy, with the feel of a rain forest. Takes some climbing to get to the upper trail, and you're close to a cliff edge, but gorgeous views, especially in the fall.

Great hiking and beautiful scenic view! The cliffs of Black Hand sandstone are magnificent. The lower gorge has a handicapped accessible trail which is easy to walk. A must see if you are in the Hocking Hills area.

My husband and I ended our day hiking here. The path was nice and paved so it was handicap accessible. We enjoyed the walk and the scenery.

Took my one year old in a stroller and my mother here. Path was paved with beautiful scenery. We actually went here twice during our trip to hocking hills because everyone could enjoy this round trip one mile paved stroll in the woods.

2.5 miles of rugged hiking terrain with beautiful scenic views! Definitely a good trek through the woods.

Again the only knock is the restrooms...the most disgusting yet. The good...two choices of trails. One in the hollow less strenuous/shorter & one around the rim. We did the rim trail which was 2-1/2 miles of trail on the rim with sections a bit challenging....More

Easy hike on a concrete path. There is a neat little waterfall at the end of the trail that isn’t stroller accessible. There is also a second trail (we didn’t do this one) that isn’t stroller accessible either. The paved hike is maybe a half...More

Yes, and the area is beautiful. You can't get all the way back to the falls, but there are little outcrops along the way and beautiful wildflowers if you are into those.

Cockle's Hollow is very flat through the first 9/10 of the trail, then gets a bit rocky at the very end.
