“a lush and hidden waterfall gorge”
This place is on private property. Listing for informational purposes only. Please do not visit without express permission from the land owner. Although the "Corkscrew" falls aren't on the official list of attractions at Hocking Hills State Park (unlike Old Man's Cave), they are a well-kept local secret. They are located at St Rt 664 and Zwickle, about 6 miles from Logan. Turn off at Zwickle Road on the right there's a trail past a guardrail that will lead you to this gorge. "The Hocking Hills is a deeply dissected area of the Allegheny Plateau in Ohio, primarily in Hocking County, that features cliffs, gorges, rock shelters, and waterfalls." Located in the picturesque sandstone region of Southeastern Ohio, Hocking Hills State Park encompasses some of the most scenic areas in the entire state. Rock outcrops, deep cool gorges, and waterfalls are found throughout the 6 main park areas. The pristine beauty of the area is enhanced by the abundance of wildlife found throughout the Hocking region. Visitors to the park can almost bet they'll see Ohio wildlife such as white tailed deer, wild turkey or even the cumbersome box turtle. The hollows and caves of the park complex have long attracted the peoples of Ohio. Evidence of the ancient Adena culture illustrates man first inhabited the recesses more than 7,000 years ago.
Just visited today! We just went into hocking hills state park to get to these falls. Simply amazing!
This photo was taken at Old Man's Cave in Hocking Hills State Park. I live within 5 miles & visit it regularly.
I didn't see a guard rail at all...where exactly is this trail. At the end of the road was a big open gate with a gravel road going through a field. Was i close?
Tried to visit and were told it is private property and that we would be trespassing. Visited Hocking Hills State Park instead and loved it! This should probably be removed as a tourist site though.
This place in unbelievable. This is a huge state park with many water falls, paths, and things of that nature. Plan to be here for 3 or so hours!! Trust me you will not want to leave this place due to time restrictions. I hope to visit this pace again. Don't forget your camera tripod and a extra battery :)
St. Rt 664 just 6 miles north of Logan. The turn off is at Zwickle Rd.on the right side of road over guardrail is a trail that leads to the gorge
From reading other comments on here, I guess I'm lucky. I made it there fine. Very beautiful place! You'll have to be sneaky though!
Spent over an hour looking for this "guardrail" on Zwickle Rd.. Where the fuck is it?
Beautiful but on restricted land. Even the state property on the near side is not open to the public. I was kicked out by a park ranger.
They are working on officially opening it and the ranger said unauthorized visitors (like me) were damaging sensitive plant life. Wait until they open it.
