Boch Hollow State Nature Preserve

Located in northern Hocking County at the edge of the Hocking Hills Region, Boch Hollow provides an excellent opportunity to see a wide diversity of habitats ranging from riparian corridors, mature wooded hills, ridges, sandstone outcrops, seeps, ponds and old fields. Seven miles of hiking trails including the Buckeye Trail takes you through a diversity of habitats that provides something for all preserve visitors.

Unique among Ohio’s preserves is the mission of Boch Hollow to serve as an educational site for hands-on environmental education of Appalachian Ohio ecology. Primarily geared toward local school children, the staff also provides programs to the general public as well as various civic and environmental organizations. 

The most significant natural feature in the preserve is Laurel Falls (formerly Robinson Falls), a rare example in Ohio of a canyon falls. An access permit is required from the Division of Natural Areas and Preserves to view the falls.
