Come spend fall weekend admiring the beauty of the waterfalls, cliffs, gorges and rock shelters while hiking the trails at Hocking Hills State Park. Experience the largest recessed cave in Ohio as well as the nearly 100-foot tall waterfall. This is expected to be a slow paced hike as we take pictures and take in the beauty of the park.
Rendezvous details will be communicated later as we’ll be taking the club van. On the way to Hocking Hills, we will be stopping for dinner along the way, which each person will be responsible for. The trip is estimated to be 3 ½ hours driving, so we hope to arrive around 9 pm Friday night. Two state park cottages have been reserved, which are close to each other.
Saturday morning we’ll wake up and enjoy a freshly made breakfast at the cottage before embarking on the trails at Hocking Hills. There are six trails ranging from ¼ mile up to 2 ½ miles we will be hiking. Most of the trails will be lined with cliffs with the possibility of ice formations coming off the rocks and possibly the waterfalls as well. Depending on how much time we are at each site, we can add the rim trails as well. Along the way, we will eat lunch at one of the sites which everyone will be responsible for themselves.
After spending the day hiking, we will come back to the cabins to cook dinner and relax in front of the fire. Breakfast will be provided Sunday before leaving as well.
The cost of $170 includes travel in the club van, lodging in the cabin with up to four others, two breakfasts and one dinner. Cabin duties will be shared. Dinner on the drive to Hocking Hills and Saturday lunch is at your own expense.
