An old-fashioned Santa will greet hikers who trek to Ash Cave this Saturday evening, Dec. 13!

Christmas in Ash Cave is designed to give families the chance to escape the hustle and bustle of the holidays, according to staff at Hocking Hills State Park.

Visitors can enjoy refreshments by an open fire and listen to carolers. Children can help decorate a Christmas tree to be enjoyed by the park's wildlife.

The event takes place from 5 to 7 p.m. Ash Cave is accessible from State Route 56 in South Bloomingville. The walkway from the parking lot to the cave will be lit and is stroller-friendly.
