Located inside of the Cuyahoga Valley National Park, just south of Cleveland, is a very beautiful little gem known as the Blue Hen Falls. The Cuyahoga Valley National Park was establish in 2000 as a national park, and is currently the only national park in Ohio.
With a height of only fifteen feet, and a crest of only 5 feet, the Blue Hen Falls is indeed a small waterfall. But what it lacks in size, it definitely does not lack in beauty. The Blue Hen Falls is a beautiful waterfall that sits almost in the center of the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. The waterfall runs over a small cliff overhang before plummeting into the small stream below.
The trail leading up to the Blue Hen Falls is a short trail just off of the West Boston Mills Road. If you have a passion for waterfalls, and are feeling slightly adventurous, you can continue your hike downstream and arrive at the slightly larger Buttermilk Falls. The trail leading up to the Buttermilk Falls is slightly less carved out, and may require a bit of rock jumping, but this 20-foot waterfall is definitely worth the troubles. If the Blue Hen Falls and the Buttermilk Falls are still not enough for you, make sure you check out the much larger Brandywine Falls also located in Cuyahoga Valley. With a height of 60-feet, we guarantee this waterfall will impress!
No matter which waterfall you end up at, we guarantee your trip to Cuyahoga Valley National Park will provide you with many beautiful trails through the Ohio forests, and allow you to have a very waterfall filled adventure!
