Photograph Indian Run Falls

1 miles  - Out-and-Back Trail

Added by Dan Barr

Lying just inside Columbus' I-270 Outerbelt, Indian Run Falls is a series of cascades descending into a deep limestone canyon that makes for a great evening family outing.

Indian Run Falls is a family friendly destination for the metro lifestyle. Sitting just outside downtown Dublin, the falls are easily accessible from the nearby parking lot, with the roar of the fall audible as soon as you get out of your car.

For those seeking a hike, there is a 1/2 mile trail that leads to SR 745 near the Scioto River following the top of the cliffs that Indian Run carves.

Be aware, the City of Dublin has recently passed legislation making any cliff diving or jumping off the falls punishable with misdemeanor charges. Explore and enjoy, but be careful!

Once and Done

The falls are okay, but it will probably be a once and done trip for my wife and I. Nothing to gawk over, and the trails all around weren't that great. Seemed like a dirt path through underbrush. Also, this place was packed with people climbing all over, had to wait a minute just to get a good picture of the falls. Parking was tough as well. Can't imagine spending over 20 minutes here...

Love this place.

My favorite place to explore in Columbus.
