Cantwell Cliffs

Cantwell Cliffs, OH-374, Rockbridge, OH 43149, USA
I mentioned in a previous post that over winter break J and I went back to Hocking Hills for a little r&r. We loved our cabin and the variety of trails we could walk on, and thought it would be nice to take advantage of a hot tub in the middle of winter (as well as not dehydrate walking the trails). Our first trip we visited Old Man's Cave, Ash Cave, and the Rock House. This trip we wanted to try new tails, so we chose to walk Cantwell Cliffs. It was an excellent choice, because the walk was relatively easy compared to Ash Cave, and the scenery was absolutely stunning. I'm a sucker for moss and stairs that are added to nature, so this was the trail for me. There isn't much to say about it other than the pictures speak for themselves. 
It was so much nicer walking in the winter because you didn't have the humidity blanketing you from the tree canopy above. It still get pretty hot at some points because it was a nice winter day, but it was not nearly as bad as going in the summer. We really enjoyed this hike because there was a lot to see. There were also several look outs at the top and a beautiful stone bridge, although we didn't get to spend time at the lookouts because other people were already there with dogs. I did get mad at J, though, because he'll always use the excuse that he grew up in El Salvador to do stupid stunts like climb boulders and jump over valleys. That sort of stuff terrifies me, and I told him I didn't care if he did them as long as I wasn't around. I hope I'm not alone in thinking that, but I guess I'm not a risk taker. I like feeling comfortable.
Have you been to Hocking Hills? Which is your favorite trail?


  1. This looks so nice! I still can't believe I've never been to Hocking Hills. It's on the list
