Conkles Hollow Falls
Located at the head of what many people believe to be the deepest gorge in Ohio, Conkle’s Hollow Falls gracefully drops 25 feet into a gorge 8 times as tall. While the waterfall may dry up in the summer heat, Conkle’s Hollow on its own is one of the most outstanding geologic landmarks in the state. Downstream from the waterfall, a 100+ foot season waterfall drops off the gorge’s wall and is quite a site if flowing.
How to get there:
Conkle’s Hollow Falls is located in the Conkles Hollow State Nature Preserve, which lies adjacent to Hocking Hills State Park. Begin by parking at the address listed above and taking the only trail out of the lot. Soon you’ll reach a trail junction, here take the Gorge Trail into Conkles Hollow. The trail is .5 miles long and ends at the waterfall. The trail is paved, so it shouldn’t take you too long to reach it.
Old Man's Cave and its many waterfalls is located a short drive from here. Cedar Falls and Ash Cave Falls are just a tiny bit further away. The lesser known Big Spring Hollow Falls is located up the street from here.
