You won’t believe you are in Ohio while on this geologically mind-blowing trek in a state nature preserve. First, climb the rim above Conkles Hollow, where rock outcrops provide inspiring views across a deep gorge. Pass a waterfall before circling back to the base of the canyon, then turn into the depths of Conkles Hollow, where rich ?ora grows among incredible cli?s, boulders, and rock houses. Finally, ?nd a waterfall in the innermost depths of the gorge before backtracking out.
