Logan, OH – June 2017 – Whispering Cave

Having made a number of trips to Hocking Hills State Park to hike the trails to the caves and cliffs, we thought we had seen them all. Fortunately this spring they opened a trail to a cave that had been off limits for 50 year, Whispering Cave.

Named so because of the acoustics that allows a person to whisper on one side and someone on the other side can hear what was said. The trail has been opened, and with an early start we had the place to ourselves.

Leaving Whispering Cave and continuing on the Hemlock Bridge Trail, we passed on great rock formations.

Interesting lighting on the cliff walls. It was a great day of hiking in the cliffs and gorges.
