Cantwell Cliffs is a part of Hocking Hills State Park in Logan, Ohio. It’s remote, but not godforsaken. Away from the crowded whereabouts like Old Man’s Cave, it’s perfect for the beautiful introvert explorer.
There are eroded, cavernous reaches, mineral halls that one must squeeze past, and rich trees that perfume and compose their own part. Then, somewhere in the middle the sun spills on the little pyramid, surrounded by shapes and rills, gnats visible just above.
The rocks are beautifully colored, tall and arresting, and one likely won’t survive falling down them. The whole of Hocking Hills is thoroughly attractive—but Cantwell is special and above the whole.
