Response to Fatal Fall at Conkles How State Nature Preserve in Ohio


My wife and I hiked this SP last October and had a wonderful two-day experience. The place was overrun with hikers from the Columbus area and the parking lots were full, but we still had a great time. (What does that tell you ?) There are several sandstone outcroppings, much larger than those found here in NW PA, Ash Cave being one of them, and waterfalls. We also visited a nearby natural bridge in the morning fog. Narrow Conkle Hollow gorge was spectacular with its 60-foot high cliffs. I guess these people were not careful enough. Maybe snow was a factor. The article didn't say a thing about trail conditions. This Ohio SP is a must-see, even though our names are not Fodor. And the park rangers do a great job.
