The Look: Cliffs and waterfalls and towering hemlocks line the trail. Huge rockOld Man's Cave Map formations are never more than a stone's throw away and awesome bridges will take your breath away. Make sure you stay on the trail. Years of illegal off-trail hiking has nearly destroyed the flora and fauna once present in the recess cave.As always, cliff areas are not safe for pets and children!

Interesting things to look for: Old Man's Cave was aptly named for an early settler,  Richard Rowe, who set up living quarters in one of the many recess caves in the area after the Revolutionary War. Killed by an accidental blast of his own gun, it is said local native Indians buried him somewhere near the entrance of the Cave. Take a guess where he is allegedly buried in one of the recess caves of the park.

Waterfalls, waterfalls, waterfalls.

Sphinx Head-at the far end of the trail, a rock formation taking the form of a sphinx head.

Length: Old Man's Cave is approximately 1 mile long and takes about an hour to hike.
