We arrived about 11 am on a fall Friday, and this place was already crowded. The falls themselves are very pretty, but the overall hike wasn't as spectacular as several other attractions in the Hocking Hills area. Coming out, the trail is a bit challenging, especially when there are lots of people trying to go through very narrow passageways.

There is a bathroom at the parking area. The trail is marked well. It is a loop. So one way. We got a map at the Welcome Center so we were prepared. Take your camera or video camera's and have fun. Such a peaceful place to get out enjoy yourself in the great outdoors! The waterfall is so pretty and different than others the way it parts and flows around the big rock in the middle. There is a cave over to the side of the waterfall. if you arrange yourself in just the right spot to take pics it looks like you can either catch the water or it is falling upon your head. Very cool. The loop back is better than the first part I thought. Yes there are a lot of stairs. The loop comes out down from the parking lot so you have to walk just a bit to get to your car.

This is another beautiful hiking trail/path in the Hocking Hills area.
Let me explain my lower rating.
My wife and I came here 20 years ago and it was colder and not as many people around and we really enjoyed this particular trail. At the end is the beautiful waterfall where you can sit and just watch nature.
This year when we came back with our kids, I was extremely disappointed in the behavior of those around us. Yes, there was lots more people here since it was summer time, but the lack of care some people have for natural beauty is stunning.

There are multiple signs that say please stay out of the water, but parents were letting their kids get in the water and under the waterfall to play and splash around. They were moving things and throwing rocks. It really made this the worst part of our whole Hocking Hills trip.

The funny part is there are plenty of places where you are allowed to get in the water.

The trail is currently a two way trail due to the parking lot being under construction, so this trail could be hard to navigate during peak times when crowds are heavy. The path between the rocks is narrow and uneven, not too hard to navigate on a good day, but with two way crowds could get very congested. With the current set up, the waterfall is at the start of the trail, which is nice if you're in a hurry. Beautiful scenery. Don't forget to spot the hidden waterfall on your left as you come down.

Take the steps down to the gorge. Then you walk along the trail with hemlocks and beautiful rock formations to the falls. There is a hidden falls that you can hear just before Cedar Falls that I’d seen recommend to look at, but you aren’t allowed to go off the path to see it. You can only look from the steps up leading away from Cedar Falls. On your way out, look back at the stones cut out for the board walk area. It is a beautiful site. The one way signs take you to the far end and you walk back to the parking area on the road.

Hiked to the falls from the fire tower. Was a longer trail than I thought. Wish there was more information on the trail on how far it was. We had to ask others how much further since we had no idea and at one point we came to an area we thought might of been the falls but it was just park of the rock formation. The falls were nice but too many people were in the water around the falls, not obeying the sign no swimming or wading in the water. Maybe they could have a seasonal worker try to enforce the rules during the busy season.

This is a well done trail with steps on every grade on the way to the falls. They decided to make it one way and this means you must go through a narrow passage that is A bit difficult. Not for anyone with mobility issues.
The water flow is seasonal. When we visited it was a small thin stream. Still this is a nice little hike for the able bodied.

One of my favorite waterfalls in Hocking Hills State Park! We took the long way around starting at old mans cave (many waterfalls along that trail!) but there is a convenient parking lot right next to cedar falls you can park at and walk down a few flight of steps and boom Cedar Falls! Highly recommend checking it out after a little bit of rainfall

Very simple trail and reasonably easy. We got there kind of early to beat any crowds and glad we did. By the time we were off the trail (around 11), the parking lots were full. Nice facilities, and solid footing all the way through. The fact that it connects to other trails is pretty nice. You can hear the falls and the water almost the entire time you are on the trail.

The parking is clearly marked with signage a few miles beforehand and leading up to the trailhead.

It had rained the night before and some areas were quite slick, wear good shoes!

We had our two dogs (golden retrievers) and they hiked the trail easily.

Beautiful payoff at the end of the short hike.
