Three people have been killed and at least one person seriously injured in falls so far this year at Hocking Hills State Park. It's prompted park officials to add more warning signs at the state's most visited state park.
"We do have some signs that indicate that people need to stay on the trails and that indicate where folks should not be traveling," said Ohio Department of Natural Resources spokesperson Matt Eiselstein.
Several of the signs will be going up in the coming weeks. Park officers are also increasing patrols this weekend in anticipation of an increase in the number of visitors.
"There are a few more citations being issued this year and a few more warnings just because of the recent falls," said Eiselstein.
Going off the trails can get you a ticket, but Eiselstein says it can also cost you your life.
"We encourage all of our visitors to get out there and enjoy the parks; they are beautiful places to see, but we also need them to make sure they are following the posted rules to make sure everyone in their party stays safe."
One of the deaths was a man rappelling down a cliff. He was not breaking any park rules. Eiselstein called it a tragic accident.
