Blue Hen Falls

2001 Boston Mills Road
Boston Township, OH 44236

The Blue Hen Falls Trail is a short trail leading to Blue Hen Falls and is favorite of visitors who wish to visit one of the prettiest waterfalls in Cuyahoga Valley National Park. The trailhead is located off Boston Mills Road, west of Riverview Road. In addition to the small trailhead parking lot on the north side of Boston Mills Road, an overflow parking lot has been added on the south side of the road. The trail heads north from the trailhead parking lot, taking hikers down an old driveway to Spring Creek (named for the spring upstream that feeds this creek year-round). It then crosses Spring Creek via an old wooden bridge. Just beyond the bridge, the Buckeye Trail splits off to the left, heading uphill to the north. To reach the Blue Hen Falls viewing area, continue to the right along the Blue Hen Falls Trail. A split-rail fence borders the trail on the right, protecting the fragile habitat around Blue Hen Falls. The trail ends at Blue Hen Falls, which is formed when Spring Creek drops fifteen feet over Berea Sandstone to a layer of Bedford Shale below. This is a favorite area for photographers, artists, and others who enjoy the beauty of a peaceful waterfall. After enjoying the serenity of Blue Hen Falls, return to the trailhead along the same trail.
