Conkle's Hollow is a rugged rocky gorge-considered one of the deepest in Ohio.
The Rim Trail on top of the cliffs circles the gorge. These cliffs are the highest in the area and provide some of the most outstanding scenery.
We spent our time hiking the 2-1/2 mile long rim trail on this visit.
The lower gorge trail is about 1 mile. The lower trail will have to wait until next trip down.
The Hollow was named for W.J. Conkle who left his name and the date 1797 carved into the sandstone on the west wall of the gorge.
This Native American couple were taking a stroll along the trail. We had a brief and pleasant conversation with them. They explained to us that they made the authentic attire themselves.
The picture below was taken from the West Rim trail looking across the gorge to the East Rim trail. The pictures before this were on the East Rim Trail. If you look closely, some people are visible near the cliff edges.
