We were killing a little time before flying out of Cleveland. This was a great little side trip along with some other falls that were only a short drive away in Cuyahoga National Park. Simple hike and great photo op.

We make it a point to stop and see waterfalls and caverns whenever we come across them on our travels. This one did not disappoint! Very nice set of falls and very easy to get to with the parking lot across the street (that seems...More

These falls are pretty, but nothing mind blowing. It is worth the visit alongside many other stops during your trips to Cuyahoga Valley National Park. I would suggest parking across the street in the overflow lot and not even bothering to see if one of...More

Tip: the parking lot only fits like 3 cars so use the overflow parking. It's a quick easy hike to get to the falls and snap a few pictures. You can climb down and get right up in the falls although I'm not sure that's...More

So we didn't do the longer and probably more entertaining hike trail, but instead did the small loop near the parking because of limitations on time. That being the case it was a very easy walk down and around to the small falls. There were...More

Blue Hen falls were pretty, peaceful and a nice walk. Take your camera and some water. Walk is. It too bad.

Cuyahogo Valley NP (camping, biking, hiking) & Cell Service (5 Replies)
Our family is considering a visit to Cuyahogo Valley National Park this summer (in late July/early August) and are considering camping at the park. We would tent camp and prefer a site with electric service. We read that the campsite reservations site opens on May 1. How quickly does the campground fill up in the summer? We’re considering camping for three nights, and spending two full days at Cuyahoga Valley NP. Our family (dad, mom, and our teenage daughter) loves nature, hiking,...More
