While the variety of unique attractions and fantastic restaurants are great reasons to visit Hocking Hills, most of our guests come to immerse in the beauty of nature and explore the park’s large network of hiking trails. One popular hiking trail near the Inn & Spa at Cedar Falls that we highly recommend is the Grandma Gatewood Trail. This beautiful 6-mile stretch is a great way to leave your worries behind and rejuvenate your mind and body in a serene and peaceful setting. Read on to learn more about this fantastic hiking trail and other routes you can enjoy along the way.

The Grandma Gatewood Trail is just one of the many places to explore during your Hocking Hills getaway. Request your free copy of our Vacation Guide right now and instantly receive a full list of our area’s top hiking trails, activities, attractions, and more that you won’t want to skip.

History of the Grandma Gatewood Trail

The Grandma Gatewood Trail was named after a regular Hocking Hills trailblazer known as Emma Rowena Gatewood. Born in Guyan Township, Ohio in 1887, Grandma Gatewood spent most of her life doing what she loved most, hiking. She often went for long walks to escape her abusive marriage, but it wasn’t until her children were grown that she became famous for hiking. Rumor has it that she would leave her home and keep walking and walking until she could go no further. She also unknowingly became the inspiration for light packing during hikes since she would only bring an army blanket, raincoat, and plastic shower curtain with her. All the rest she would harvest from the land.

Grandma Gatewood participated in many famous hikes, but of them all, her favorite was the 6-mile trail that wound through the Hocking Hills State Park from Ash Cave to Old Man’s Cave. In fact, she loved this trail so much that she was the first to start the annual Winter Hike that allowed hikers like herself to blaze the trail each January. Since she spent many of her hiking days on this trail, it eventually came to be named after her. Although Emma Gatewood passed in 1973, many visitors follow in her footsteps to this day to experience the incredible beauty and serenity of the Grandma Gatewood Trail.

How to Enjoy the Grandma Gatewood Trail For Yourself

Many hikers get confused when they can’t find the Grandma Gatewood Trail on a Hocking Hills trail map. The reason for this is because the Grandma Gatewood Trail is actually a part of the Buckeye Trail. This 1,400-mile trail is one of the most frequented in the state and is comprised of 26 unique sections. The Grandma Gatewood Trail officially begins at the Upper Falls of Old Man’s Cave and continues downstream. During your journey, you will encounter several Hocking Hills State Park landmarks such as Devil’s Bathtub, Broken Rock Falls, Cedar Falls, and the towering 100-foot Whispering Falls. Ash Cave, Ohio’s largest recess cave, is the trail’s final destination. The breathtaking scenery and easy to moderate terrain of the Grandma Gatewood Trail have made it a favorite of many hikers, and we’re sure you’ll agree.

Experience the Region’s Best Hiking During Your Stay With Us

After your adventure down the Grandma Gatewood Trail in the Hocking Hills, return to the Inn & Spa at Cedar Falls for some well-deserved relaxation. Our beautiful Select Registry property is green-certified and works to preserve the beauty of the Hocking Hills instead of competing with it. That way, you and your significant other, friends, or family can enjoy peace, solitude, and luxury modern amenities together.

Your Hocking Hills Winery Itinerary

Prepare to be transported to Southeast Ohio’s very own Wine Country! Here are our best tips for filling your day with fun activities at the Hocking Hills Winery!

Spend Your Morning Exploring the Hocking Hills

The Hocking Hills Winery opens at 1 p.m. each day (excluding Tuesdays), but don’t worry! We have a few great suggestions for spending your morning in the Hocking Hills before heading over to the winery!

First, fuel up for a day of wine tasting with a delicious complimentary breakfast of homemade muffins and pastries, fresh fruit, locally made coffee and tea, and scrumptious savory dishes right at our inn. After you’ve had your fill, venture to one of the many antique shops in Ohio where you can spend a few hours searching for treasures. From rare pieces of jewelry to unique furniture and collectibles, you’re sure to find the perfect souvenir to bring home from your trip.

Or, if you’re looking to get in some exercise before indulging, take a scenic morning hike to a waterfall. Our property is surrounded on three sides by the beautiful Hocking Hills State Park, so you can have a fun and easy adventure before heading to the winery. We suggest taking a quick 1/2 mile trek to Cedar Falls where you can climb 100 steps to and from the 50-foot waterfall, then make your way to Old Man’s Cave where you’ll admire beautiful rock formations caused by the cascading water.

Spend Your Afternoon Sipping

Now that the winery has opened its doors, the vino-filled fun can begin! Expect to be greeted by the sound of music from a live band, the smell of other guests grilling their lunch, and the delicious taste of winery finger foods like meats, cheeses, and crackers. You can also order a brown bag lunch from the Inn & Spa at Cedar Falls to take with you! Then head to the beautiful tasting room or spacious patio where you can sample a variety of wines including Chardonnay, Malbec, Riesling, and Syrah. Or, take a tour of the vineyard where you can get up-close and personal with the grapes that produce your favorite flavors and enjoy a relaxing stroll with a glass in hand. Cheers!

“Wine” Down at the Inn & Spa at Cedar Falls

As the evening comes to a close, we invite you to return to the Inn & Spa at Cedar Falls for a full night of comfort and relaxation. Kindred Spirits, the inn’s onsite restaurant, is a great place to enjoy a delicious dinner and try even more drinks from local wineries and breweries.
