Waterfalls!!!

Spring is a great time to see Ohio waterfalls. Many Ohio waterfalls dry up in the summer heat. But in spring, with melting snow, saturated ground, and rain showers, these waterfalls can be quite spectacular. Below is a list of some of the Ohio waterfalls we’ve visited categorized by geographic region.

Hocking Hills: Lower Falls




Central Ohio
Southeast Ohio

Southeast Ohio is waterfalls central with a large number of waterfalls particularly in the Hocking Hills region.

Southwest Ohio
Northeast Ohio
Other Waterfalls

Here’s a list of a few Ohio waterfalls we haven’t visited (yet!).

  • Sheepskin Hollow (Columbiana County)
  • Bedford Reservation (Cuyahoga County)
  • Indian Run Falls – a small waterfall in Dublin, OH
  • Chagrin Falls – a waterfall in the village of the same name (Cuyahoga County)
  • Chair Factory Falls – a small waterfall in (Lake County) on the Greenway Corridor

Along with waterfalls, the spring is also “mud season”; trails are likely to be muddy, so dress appropriately. Also be careful around rivers and creeks containing fast running water. They present the dual danger of drowning and (especially in the early spring) hypothermia.

So that’s our list of Ohio waterfalls. It is by no means exhaustive. What’s your favorite Ohio waterfall? Did we leave out any interesting ones? Tell us about them!

  1. There is a waterfall in East Monroe, Ohio. It is just to the east of the railroad crossing on Monroe Rd (off SR28). The railroad tracks cross right above the falls

  2. If you visit Blue hen falls, continue about another 1/2 mile downstream, the trail makes several river crossings, you will arrive at another hidden waterfall, bridal veil falls. (A popular name for several falls in the area)
