Conkle's Hollow is under the direction of Ohio Division of Natural Areas and Preservers. The area is well known for its unique rock formations, high cliff overlooks and dotting of recess caves.

The Legend:

Native Americans once living in the area would rob settlers traveling through the area and hide their loot in the caves and hollows.  Several of the thieves were caught, but not before they could hide their treasure in Conkle's Hollow. They were hung in hollow and to this day, it is said you can see their shadows roaming up and down the trails.

And people have lived and walked along the trails for centuries. There are known deaths there by suicide and falls. Some have heard screaming in the woods - in fact, a recent visitor to the site relayed to us they heard screams when the trail was being updated not long ago. They barreled past the barricades to help the person in need, but no one was ever found.
