This really wonder spot is located Hocking Hills State Park
In early 1800's Richard Rowe took up residence in a large recess cave in southern Ohio that is now known as Old Man's Cave. Nearly 200 years later his home has become the heart of Hocking Hills State Park, one of the most popular state parks in the area, receiving millions of visitors a year. This wild hermit's refuge is now the location of the visitor center, with the obligatory gift and snack shop, and a modern campground with a swimming pool. I am not sure what the Old Man would have thought of all this, but I can hazard a guess. The gorge that he loved remains pretty much the same however.
The gorge trail is only about a 1/2 mile long. There are four different sets of stairs that lead into the gorge. To see the entire length of the gorge, start at the east end, where you will find the Upper Falls. This waterfall is about 15 feet high. Above this waterfall are some smaller drops. Like all the creeks in the area, this one gets pretty thin in summer.
