January 21 is the date for 2012 Annual Winter Hike. The six-mile trek from Old Man’s Cave to Ash Cave draws thousands of hikers each year to experience southeast Ohio’s most spectacular scenery. The hike features continuous starts from 9-11 a.m. Hot bean soup is served midway at Cedar Falls for a donation and a shuttle bus will return hikers from Ash Cave to the parking lot at Old Man’s Cave.
Hikers are advised to wear layered clothing and good traction footwear, as snow and ice can make the trail slippery. They’re also encouraged to bring a camera to record the region’s winter beauty.
With the Hocking Hills offering everything from an easy hike through Ash Cave, to more lengthy treks like the annual winter hike, and the region’s many other gorgeous rock formations, the Hocking Hills is among the Buckeye State’s most popular winter destinations.
