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.
What a fun little walk to this gem of a place.
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.
