A little bit about Hocking Hills State Park from a historical perspective. There’s a red sand you see referred to as sandstone that dates back millions of years ago from when the ocean disappeared leaving behind this stone. Millions of years of changes and slow erosion resulted in the magnificent beauty of Hocking Hills we see today. In fact, some of the plant life that existed then can still be seen to some degree today. There is an intriguing story about how Old Man’s Cave got its name. A very interesting history befitting of a truly special, unique place.
