Bob and I visited Clifton Gorge State Nature Preserve in early April. Since the foliage isn’t out yet, visitors can get a clearer view of the Little Miami River than would be available in summer, plus the river is swollen from all of the spring showers.
The bare branches that are extending over the falls in the above photo will block part of the view after the leaves have emerged.
After observing the falls from above, we moved upstream and looked back at it.
Then we started heading downstream.
This seasonal waterfall was a mere trickle when we saw it last summer.
Although the trees are mostly bare-looking, some early spring flowers were already blooming.
Clifton Gorge State Nature Preserve is in Greene County. See our overview of Clifton Gorge for a more complete description of this nature preserve, including map and address.
