Unplugged: Hiking In Ohio

Unplugged: Hiking In Ohio

One of my favorite unplugged activities is hiking.

It is not only a great workout but a chance to talk with friends or a loved one while enjoying the beauty of nature.

My hike in Ohio’s Hocking Hills State Park was the 4 state I have hiked in and I hope to inspire you to get out in nature and unplug this weekend.

Due to time constraints, we only had a few hours so we chose to hike around the Old Man’s Cave area of Hocking Hills State Park but there are many other places to go inside this park.

You can check out all the area has to offer by checking out their website here.

This was one of our shorter hikes coming in at just a little over 2 miles but offering lots of beautiful things to see in that short time.

Here is the route we took and what we got to see.

We started at Upper Falls which is about a 5 min walk from the parking lot to see the top of the waterfall.

Next, we continued down the path until you come to another rock bridge right above the Devil’s Bathtub.

The next stop on our hike was Old Man’s Cave a huge cave which you can see from the bottom of a staircase or go upstairs for an even greater view.

Just past Old Man’s Cave is a unique rock formation called Sphinx Head.

We could have turned around and walked 1.5 miles back the same way we came in but instead, we chose to climb a big set of stairs complete with tunnels to the top of the Cave and back to the parking lot.

If you are in or near Hocking Hills State Park I recommend you check out Old Man’s Cave.

You can go by the information desk and get a map so you can map out the best route for you and your hiking partners.

There are lots of different beautiful things that can be seen by taking a stroll in the woods and I invite you to google your local state park and go for a visit.

Get out of the house, unplug and take in the beautiful scenery.
