Park
“Conkle's Hollow- Hocking Hills State Park - 24132 Big Pine Road, Logan, OH 43138 GPS Tracking: 39.452879,-82.572148 The trail was named for W.J. Conkle who left his name carved in the sandstone on one wall of the gorge. Be Careful! The upper trail is not recommended for children. Hiking can be hazardous. Horsehead Cave on the lower rim has a unique legend tied to it. It is said Native Indians hid treasure nearby, a cache of silver stolen from settlers. The ghosts of the Native Indians are said to guard the cave!”
