Conkles Hollow State Nature Preserve reviews
The lower trail is very nice. It starts off as a pretty wide sidewalk but then it goes into the rocky places and it ends up at a nice little waterfall. We loved it. It's pretty easy, too! more »
We did the rim trail first. This is the more challenging trail, but the views are worth it! The beginning has a climb, but then is comfortable for the rest. The majority of the gorge trail is paved..... more »
Clean bathroom, well maintained wood plank/concrete pathway for the lower falls trail. Would be safe for a stroller or wheelchair in my opinion on the lower trail. A decent amount of parking spaces with picnic tables in the area. I went the first week in September and the falls were... more of a trickle. Beautiful nonetheless
One of my favorite Hocking Hills Destinations! Great place for Older and young ones to hike. Stay in the Gorge for a relaxing hike. Do the rim trail for a challenge and excitement. Be careful on the Rim trail it's dangerous. Beautiful place!
