This area is fun for all young and old a like. They have many hiking trails for all hiking skills. The falls are breath taking at all times of the year. This place has park benches and picnic area to have a picnic at.

After arriving at the parking lot, there is a short walk down some steps to the lower base of the waterfall. From the pictures you can see that you walk on an elevated boardwalk. Overall a great waterfall that you don't have to hike far to see!

...But a great opportunity to get in some exercise! After admiring the falls, continue past, and around the top of the falls towards the popular Bed & Breakfast next door. The trail continues past the chicken coop, and into the woods. The difficulty isn't bad, but watch your step, as the terrain can get rocky. The halfway point is currently... More

You can easily view the falls here, from several different levels as they have made about three different ways to see them, it is right down from the parking area so you do not have to walk a trail here is you do not wish to. we did walk the trail and is follows a river, pretty easy to navigate...

This waterfall is pretty but nothing special. You have to stay on a boardwalk, so I was disappointed that I couldn't get closer or different angles for photographs. It was a pretty, short walk through the woods and the boardwalk was well maintained. Unfortunately that is about the best I can say about this attraction.

Loved the waterfall, and the wooden walkway they have built to reach here. It's less than 5 minutes walk from the parking lot which worked great for us since we went there just to see the falls while returning back home after long weekend holiday. The park also looked great and saw people hiking, cycling etc. there was a covered... More

very beautiful walk to the falls and when arrive at the falls, it is well worth the walk to see,, there are several steps to walk down to the falls and you can come back the same way or take a longer walk through the woods and come back a different way.

Went today, the signs were a little confusing, the best view is taking the wooden walkway down to the overlook. The path also goes to the top of the falls, but you really can't get a good view there. Good amount of steps, so be prepared to walk!

We recently stopped to visit Brandywine Falls while enroute to do some bike riding in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. I've lived in Ohio all my life and have never visited the falls till this visit. The falls were beautiful and the walk to them was not hard at all. We did not take the loop trail which I believe...
