“beautiful scenic waterfall”
Hayden Falls Park is located on the West side of the Scioto River, just along Hayden Run Road, West of Griggs Reservoir bridge. A boardwalk, steps and an overlook were constructed in 2006 to aid in accessibility of the community viewers, but as to protect the natural ecosystem as well. There are a few picnic tables are on upper level and a small parking lot is also available. This park includes a unique gorge habitat that only occurs along the western shore of the Scioto River. This ecosystem is home to a beautiful 35-foot waterfall and also rare and endangered plants.
GPS took us on a round about way, but very pretty. Not handicap accessible but there is an overlook at top ground level. Nice decked walkway.
Don't miss this beautiful waterfall and walkway! A must stop. Will only take about 20 mins. 50 plus steps so plan to have ice cream afterwards. Fyi: no bathrooms or water fountains.
Nice fall! I spotted this when visiting a friend in Ohio, had no idea it would be so breath taking http://ihitthebutton.com/hayden-run-falls-columbus-ohio/
The path wasn’t very long but this stop is well worth it especially in autumn! Lots of steps though so not accessible for the differently abled.
Very much worth the effort to see it. It takes only a few minutes to fully take it in. There are multiple views that can be experienced within minutes- at the water level and above. Very family friendly and worth seeing. The picture above showing a person near the falls must have been taken a long time ago, because now there is a board walk and, clearly, visitors are supposed to stay on it. The picture does not at all do it justice; although we visited in April and perhaps the flow rate is much higher in the Spring. It was quite dramatic. Where the board walk ended close to the falls, the mist reaches you. My thirteen year old daughter and I really enjoyed the visit.
