DIRECTIONS FROM LOGAN, OHIO TO THE HOCKING STATE FOREST ROCK CLIMBING AND RAPPELLING AREA PARKING LOT:
From Logan: Take US 33 to Logan and exit South on SR 664.
From US 33, travel four (4) miles South on SR 664 to Big Pine Rd. and turn right — there's a sign on SR 664 marking Big Pine Rd.
Take Big Pine 5.8 miles (8 to 10 minutes) to the gravel, half acre parking lot on the right. Big Pine Rd. Is also known as "Township 11"
There's a sign on the opposite side of the road that says "Hocking State Forest Rock Climbing and Rappelling area, (see picture).
This is the only gravel parking lot on Big Pine Rd.
There are no buildings or restroom at the parking area.
Using these directions, if you get to Conkle's Hollow Nature Preserve you've gone about a mile too far.
Both SR 664 and Big Pine Rd are windy and hilly so it can seem like you've traveled farther than actual. From Logan, be sure to follow the SR 664 signs through the bends in the road to Big Pine Rd.
Directions from Hocking Hills State Park Lodge or Campground area: Drive South on SR 664/SR 374 past Grandma Faye's to SR 374 North. Turn right on SR 374 North and travel downhill to Big Pine Rd. Turn right on BIg Pine Rd. (Pine Grove Methodist Church on the corner). Drive one mile beyond Conkle's Hollow State Nature Preserve to the gravel parking lot on your left. If you reach Happy Trails riding stable you've gone about 1 mile too far.
GPS IS NOT RELIABLE There's no designated street address for the parking area. Pretend it's the 90's, leave early and use a map!. The Hocking Hills visitor guide magazine includes a double wide county map that shows the rock climbing and rappelling area on the left page. Otherwise, Happy Trails Riding Stable is about 1/2 mile east of the parking area. Please note, it's common for GPS systems to be misleading or unavailable due to lack of mobile phone coverage.
WE ENDEAVOR TO RUN ON TIME:
Pretend it's the 90's, plan ahead, leave early, allow extra time, do a drive by in advance, print and carry hard copies of maps and directions, save the info to your phone. Because of the limitations on mobile phone coverage, if you call to say you're running late we may not be able to receive your call or get word to your guide.
