  • We were there for the 53rd annual hike at Hocking Hill state park. We visited several caves and then we visited Rock House. For me this was the highlight of it all. There are steep stairs to go down t...  more »
  • About a mile in total length this is fairly easy for a hike. Nice if you had already done a few hikes that day. The Rockhouse is pretty cool. Kids would enjoy it.  more »
  • One of my favorite hikes in hocking hills. Really beautiful and unique. Can be crowded if you go during a "busy time". Beautiful scenery that is worth the hike.  more »

  • Amazing! Pigeons were nesting in the cave during our visit (they may all the time) making it a little added bonus. Hike around "House" offers great scenery and easy hiking for the kids.
  • Great place to get outside and be in nature. Had an exceptionally warm February day to visit. Trail was very wet and muddy. It looks like they are repairing and updating parts of the trail. Be prepared for slippery sandstone. It's a short trail to reach the Rockhouse itself.
  • Wow, what an experience. At first we almost made the rookie mistake of parking in the bottom parking lot, but make sure to keep driving on up the path for the ideal experience. The trail overall is manageable and fairly short with great views. Fences were strategically placed during the path of descent towards the rock house formation, which was appreciated as our group is extremely safety conscious. Once we navigated our way down to the rock house formation, we were blown away by how large the chamber of the rock house was. Wow, what an achievement by the native Americans for carving such elegant protection from the elements especially given primitive tools. Even signs and a stone wall were created before the tribe moved on. Talk about a feeling of being transported back in history! The only negative part of the whole experience was observing two people dangerously climbing around in areas of the trail that were blatenly marked as “danger, not a trail” in areas where they posed a danger to themselves as well as others in the vicinity. Luckily no injuries occurred, but it was a nerve wracking experience. Once you’re finished at the rock house, you can continue in a loop back to the parking lot, or turn around and climb back the same way you used to get there. This was the most challenging part of the experience for my group and we would like to suggest the possible addition of an elevator or stair assist system be added to the trail for those that may not be able to handle the uphill climb. Overall great experience. We will definitely return at some point but it’s hard to say when we will be able to find the availability to come back sometime within the next 1-30 years.
  • Stunning scenery. Definitely wear comfortable shoes, don't be like me! We did have a small toddler with us, he was able to navigate most of the terrain as long as he help one of our hands!
  • This is the only true cave in the region. It doesn't even resemble what most people think of as a cave. It's a large tunnel on the side of a hill pretty much but it's still an interesting thing to look at and go inside. The hike to the cave isn't very long or difficult. There is parking and a latrine at the trail head an was easy to get to.
