Ash Cave is a horseshoe-shaped cave in Hocking Hills Ohio is massive; measuring 700 feet across, 100 feet deep, and 90 feet high. A small stream of the East Fork of Queer Creek cascades over the rim into a small plunge pool below. Sometimes during a very cold winter ice cones form under the falls. The size of the cone can be seen in this photo by the man walking beside it. Early Native Americanbs used the huge recess cave for a meeting ground. They built so many fires inside that the cave was named Ash Cave by the white men.
