Devils Bathtub

This is a photograph along Old Mans Cave Trail in Hocking Hills State Park. The trail and bridge go over the “Devils Bathtub”  It consists of a unique, tiered waterfall between the Upper Falls and Old Man’s Cave. The tub is situated in a weak layer of Black Hand Sandstone and is constantly enlarged by the swirling action of Old Man’s Creek. The upper part of the falls drops into a deep, bowl-shaped basin, forming a captivating whirlpool before dropping again into the large pool below.  From this angle it is hard to see the actual bowl of the tub, but I liked this view along the trail.

Thanks for stopping
