Hike to Cedar Falls
Ohio › Cedar Falls Trailhead
Added by The Outbound Collective
Hike through forest and rock formations to a 50ft waterfall.
Located on Queer Creek in Hocking Hills State Park, the popular 50 ft-Cedar Falls still tends to be less crowded than Old Man's Cave. There are scenic views to be had year-round off of the stream-lined path, starting from the lower parking lot off of SR 374.
For quicker access to the falls, start at the upper parking lot, nearby. A section of stairs, called the Democracy Steps, lead down to the falls. The steps were designed by artist and architect Akio Hizume, based on the Fibonacci Sequence.
Trail maps are availablehere.
