The most popular, Old Man’s Cave, is a deep gorge named for one of its early inhabitants, recluse Richard Rowe who made the cave his home in the late 1700s. Many companies offer organized activities such as canoeing, horseback riding, and ziplining. You can also choose to make use of the many hiking trails, fishing spots, or fully equipped campgrounds.

This is the best state park in Ohio by far. beautiful hiking trails and plenty of scenic overlooks. Old mans cave is usually pretty busy but there’s plenty of other areas to go hike such as Ash Cave and Rock House.
