We have had 18 straight days of rain here in central Ohio so I decided it was time to visit one of my favorite waterfalls. Ash Cave is Ohio's largest recess cave. The horseshoe-shaped cave is massive; measuring 700 feet from end to end, 100 feet deep from the rear cave wall to its front edge with the rim rising 90 feet high. A small creek cascades over the rim into a small plunge pool below. The cave was formed like the others in this region; the middle layer of Blackhand sandstone has been weathered or eroded while the more resistant upper and lower zones have remained intact. Ash Cave is named after the huge pile of ashes found under the shelter by early settlers. The largest pile was recorded as being 100 feet long, 30 feet wide and 3 feet deep. The source of the ashes is unknown but is believed to be from Indian campfires built up over hundreds of years.
