Meet at the Ash Cave parking lot. Take your sweetheart for a romantic stroll to Ash Cave in the soft light of dusk. Afterwards, enjoy a cozy fire and refreshments.
Take a hike with someone you like. Find a date and take a stroll through Ash Cave at Hocking Hills State Park. Enjoy holding hands at the campfire. Take a short hike around the cave and whisper sweet nothings in each other's ears. It is a great icebreaker for your first date. It's something new for those who have been married longer than they can count on fingers and toes.
Ash Cave - Off State Route 56 - About an hour and fifteen minutes from Columbus.
For those who haven't the faintest idea of what to give their sweetheart on Valentine's day, you just might want to make a stop at Hocking Hills State Park for this special event.
There's a leisurely stroll led by Ohio State Park Naturalist Pat Quackenbush along the 1/4 mile trail back to the recess cave. The walk is informal with several short stops along the way.
This takes about a half hour. Once at the recess cave, romantics can mingle around the campfire for a while, help themselves to free cookies and hot chocolate or simply enjoy holding hands. Just so you know. . . The hike isn't limited to spouses and dates! Folks have brought their kids, dogs and grandkids too! All are welcome. Dress warmly, it is chilly in Ohio in February
