LOGAN: Hocking Hills State Park is a rocky wonderland that every Ohioan should see.
Some claim that the 2,348-acre park 11 miles south of Logan in Hocking County in Southeast Ohio is the best state park for natural wonders, with its waterfalls, towering cliffs and deep hemlock-lined gorges.
It's a dramatic landscape. There's nothing like it anywhere else in Ohio.
It is the destination park in Ohio and the best-known park in the state system. It gets 2 million visitors a year.
Hocking Hills State Park features five distinct areas: Ash Cave, Old Man's Cave, Cedar Falls, Rock House and Cantwell Cliffs. Nearby is Conkle's Hollow State Nature Preserve. It is surrounded by 9,696 acres of Hocking State Forest.
