Robinson’s Cave Walking Tour


In an ongoing series, we will be taking walking tours throughout Ohio’s Winding Road. Focusing on COVID-safe activities, we aim to share the natural beauty of the region and highlight its unique history and vibrant culture.

Robinson’s Cave, New Straightsville

History and Nature Meet in Southern Perry County

A two-time transplant to Athens, (I studied at Ohio University as an undergrad in the late ‘90’s to early 2000’s, and then settled here with my family in 2017), I’ve always felt connected to the surrounding hills, but haven’t wandered too far from the mainstream attractions in the region.  

Robinson’s Cave, located in southern Perry County, had been on my radar for a few years, but for some reason, I’d never made the time to go visit. The cave is known for its natural beauty and historical link to the labor-organizing movement and to me, fully embodies what Ohio’s Winding Road has to offer.

I decided to finally go see it for myself for my first Walking Tour.
