Wilderness Level: 2/3 -

Policy on Fitness Self-Assessment 

Level 2: Primarily applies to trips in which we carry only day packs. In one day, we can hike up to 9 miles and 4500 feet of elevation gain on maintained trails, or up to 7 miles and 2000 feet of elevation gain on more rugged, less-maintained trails. For a Level 2 trip you should be comfortable hiking 6-8 miles in a day in hilly or mountainous terrain with a light day pack. If a backpacking trip has a Level 2 rating, it means the distances are 2-4 miles with little elevation gain/loss.

Group Size: 10/7 Maximum/Minimum

Adults Only

***Before registering***

While considering your participation in CIWC trips, be aware that some trips will involve shared transportation, lodging, and other activities. Each participant is encouraged to evaluate your comfort level with such arrangements based on your health condition, vaccination status, and unknown COVID positivity rates at the time of the trip.  Members are encouraged to review the COVID waiver as a part of this evaluation.

Hocking Hills State Park is a beautiful place to hike, with many amazing rock formations and waterfalls. On this trip we will hike in the main part of the park (Old Man’s Cave and Cedar Falls area) and travel to near-by sites such as Rock House, Cantwell Cliffs, and Conkles Hollow Nature Preserve. The trails range from easy to rugged, and there are ravines and rocks to climb over on many of the trails. Expect to hike up to 10 miles on one day so that we can see as many sights as possible. As a bonus, the moon will be waxing towards full, so night hiking may be an option!

We will camp in the primitive hike-in campground on the east side of the park. This means that we must carry all our camping gear in to the sites (about 0.5 mile, on a gravel path) and leave our cars in the parking lot.  Also, we will need to carry in water from the parking lot, where there is a potable water spigot.  Toilets in the campground are pit toilets, but campers may drive over to the main campground to use the showers.

Camping reservations and groups supplies are included in the trip price. All meals are participants’ responsibility. The group will arrange carpooling to the location.

Questions may be submitted to ciwcinfo@gmail.com.

All trip participants must fill out and submit a CIWC Medical Form and Long Waiver Form.  

Effective on all trips, there will be a $50 non refundable registration fee. This fee will be assessed to those who sign up for a trip, get on the roster and then later cancel. Even cancelling before the cancel date. Those who never make the active roster (i.e. those who stay on the waitlist) will NOT be charged the $50 cancellation fee.
