Cuyahoga Valley National Park: Blue Hen Falls

After our short hike at Brandywine Falls, we were ready to see a little bit more. The short walk to Blue Hen Falls seemed to fit the bill. The hike started with a steep downhill walk on an old paved road.

Finally we found ourselves at the bottom of our descent where we crossed a creek on a footbridge

and soon found the spur trail that led to the falls. The falls were small, but still pleasant.

We enjoyed the view for a short time before heading back up the steep old road to the car. Along the way we saw a few wildflowers in bloom. We drove into Independence, Ohio to eat lunch at the wonderful MELT before getting ready for our friends' wedding celebration.
