Along with the reopening of these popular trails, the Hocking State Forest is also bringing back several recreational features beginning on June 15, like the horse camp, Airplane Rock and bridle trails north of the rappelling area on Unger Road. The bridle trails south of the rappelling area and fire tower parking area will remain closed to the public until further notice.
In the latter portion of the summer months, park officials hope to revise current trails surrounding other popular destinations, like Ash Cave, Cedar Falls and Whispering Cave to allow for social distancing.

Looking to spend an entire weekend exploring all that Hocking Hills State Park has to offer? The park will be taking new reservations for the campground and cabin areas with an arrival date of July 15 or later. If you reserved a spot at a campground or cabin through June 30, the reservation will be automatically canceled and a full refund will be issued to the original form of payment. If they are unable to refund your reservation to the original form of payment, then you will receive an Ohio State Parks e-gift card that can be used on a future reservation.
