Hike to Blue Hen Falls
Ohio › Blue Hen Falls Trailhead
Added by Cameron Kennedy
Are you looking for one of the most beautiful waterfalls in Northeast Ohio? Look no further, Blue Hen Falls is known to be one of the prettiest waterfalls in Cuyahoga Valley National Park.
Within Cuyahoga Valley National Park lies an amazing little waterfall known as Blue Hen Falls. There are few parking spots at the given address but there is an overflow lot right across the street. After parking you will descend down a semi steep hill and arrive at a bridge. Once you cross the bridge you will see to your left a trial that leads to the Buckeye Trail and to your right the falls. Turn right and you will arrive at a wooden fence that lines the edge of the small gorge that the waterfall flows into. From the fence you can see the spectacular views of the falls. At this location there are a couple of chairs to relax among the peaceful sounds of the Blue Hen Falls and wildlife nearby. (The more adventurous can easily walk to the around the "L" shaped fence and get closer to the falls for great picture opportunities... WARNING the rocks nearing the falls are slippery!)
This hike is not strenuous and is just around a mile overall (unless you proceed onto the Buckeye State Trail which is longer). For a hike to Blue Hen Falls I personally recommend packing light.
- Water bottles (no trash cans on site so PLEASE DO NOT LITTER)
- Proper attire for the weather conditions
- Cameras to capture the falls
Please respect the places you find on The Outbound.
