The amount that is in this park as an overall is truly unreal. I went to every park that is apart of "Hocking Hills" and they are all truly amazing with their own unique features.

I have visited when it snowed and iced like crazy and I have also visited in the middle of the fall season and both occasions were absolutely unbelievable. This is a park that is not nearly as well known as it should be.

I made 2 trips there and would be more than happy to do it again.

Here are the 6 specific places to check out:
1) Cantwell Cliffs
2) Ash Cave
3) Old Man's Cave
4) Cedar Falls
5) Conkle's Hollow
6) Rock House

This waterfall is absolutely unbelievable... but only if you go exploring for it. The picture is deceiving, you can only see that if you pull over onto one of the two sides and climb (more like step) over the guard railing and climb down the rocks and then you will see this unbelievable waterfall. Now it is absolutely stunning and worth it, but be sure you have some pretty good athletic ability because it is a trip down and a trip up somewhat climbing across rocks (trip in the terms of strenuous, not distance).

When figuring out how to get here, I followed this person's directions they posted on TripAdvisor. They helped me out, so I'm going to share them on here...

"Start at Franklin and go to Highlands. It is part of the Mountain Waters Scenic Byway. By going in this direction, you will hit the pull-offs and parking areas on the right side. Start in Franklin by fueling up then head onto US Highway 64 for your first stop at… Cullasaja Falls: These falls are viewed directly off the highway on one of two right hand pull-offs. About ¼ mile down—no official trail marked."

If you are already going this direction, you have to stop at 2 other waterfalls (both of which are significantly easier to "hike")...

1) Dry Falls... Crazy easy hike along a paved path for what can't be even more than half a mile to a beautiful waterfall.

2. Bridal Veil Falls... Typically there isn't much water coming over this (unless it rains), but you can drive your car under it with a little paved road that veers off of the road under it back to the road.
