Hayden Falls

Hayden Run

Hayden Falls Park

Dublin, Ohio


This is the second time I've visited this falls and now both times I've come to visit it the falls was flowing so heavy that spray was a serious problem. The roadside park is just a short walk down some stairs and across a boardwalk. I was also "glad" to see that the opening that allowed access to shoot the falls at the end of the boardwalk was sealed and apparently the only place they wanted you to view the falls was from this traditional perspective. In order to get a different perspective you had to hop the railing, which was a little higher than usual. I'm not sure what would possess whoever manages this park to restrict access to being able to walk around the falls area, but in my opinion it's just another representation of Big Brother holding our hands for our own good. Nonetheless, the falls is worth the visit and with a little less flow, hop the railing and have yourself a good time, and if there's been some heavy rain, wait a couple days afterwards before you go and check it out.
