Blue Hen Falls

Cuyahoga Valley National Park, Ohio

A waterfall, a meandering stream, and a warm palette of brightly colored leaves awaited us on this rewarding out and back autumn hikeŚlocated within Ohio's Cuyahoga Valley National Park.

Blue Hen Falls cascades 15 feet over the edge of a sandstone cliff, landing in a pool below, creating a dramatic scene that epitomizes the geological beauty of Ohio. Look carefully at the trail as it makes its way downhill from the bench, and you will notice a spur trail that leads to the base of the falls—tread carefully down this embankment and you will be rewarded with outstanding views of Blue Hen Falls, the surrounding shale cliffs, and the cascading waters of Spring Creek.

Spring Creek is a picturesque, boulder strewn creek that winds its way through the thickly forested ravine towards Buttermilk Falls(located on private property). Of particular beauty, is the striking turquoise color that emanates from the shale streambed, it is so vibrant that it appears almost other worldly.
