Columbus, Ohio waterfall

We recently took a family vacation to Columbus, OH.  We had a quick change of plans due to the recent flooding in West Virginia affecting our original road trip.

I was bummed we had to cancel our waterfall road trip so while we were in Columbus, OH- I googled “waterfalls in Ohio” to see what popped up.  Much to my extreme surprise… there was a waterfall IN COLUMBUS… less than 10 minutes from our hotel.

The sign at the entrance to the boardwalk says Griggs Nature Preserve.  The waterfall is known as Hayden Falls.  Click here to see more info.   It hadn’t rained in a while… I’m sure it’s quite impressive when the water is more abundant- but what a beautiful place to waste some time and enjoy nature with the kids.  The boardwalk looks new and is quite safe. There is a relatively steep staircase as you first leave the parking lot, but what you see is all that there is- past the stairway is a boardwalk which is very sturdy/ safe.
