Hike the Bridal Veil Falls and Tinkers Creek Loop

Ohio Bridal Veil Falls Parking Lot

Added by

Easy access to a scenic waterfall overlook, and the opportunity to hike through a National Natural Landmark gorge.

This popular waterfall and gorge in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park are linked by an easy, well-maintained trail. Both attractions are deserving sights – Bridal Veil Falls measures 15 ft tall, with multiple shale layers creating the veiled effect, while Tinkers Creek Gorge, at 896 ft deep, has plenty of overlooks and pretty scenery.

You can combine both in a day hike via the 4 mile loop trail, or simply take the 0.1 mile boardwalk to the waterfall's overlook.

A trail map is available here.

How to Get There

Easy Access and Great Views!

The waterfalls were a bit low thanks to the recent drought, but the views were still worth it, and the Great Falls of Tinkers Creek were still impressive even with it being a dry year. Definitely worth a stop if you're in the area.

Hike to the Elusive Corkscrew Falls

Ohio / Route 664 and Zwinkle Rd

I like to describe this waterfall as the "elusive" corkscrew falls. A couple years ago, only one or two people had blogged on the internet about these falls.

This hike begins at the trail-head of Cuyahoga National Park. Once arrived, you will cross a bridge overlooking the Cuyahoga River.

Hike the Pew Island Trail, Indian Lake

Ohio / Pew Island Trailhead

I hiked this trail on a very cold, blustery day. A winter storm was blowing in across the ice and temperatures were downright frigid.
