Cedar Cliff Falls
Indian Mound Reserve
Last weekend I got out with my good friend Bryan Janosick for some much needed waterfalling, though not as much as I had hoped. A late start and with myself feeling a bit under the weather things were a little slow going. In fact, we only made one waterfall stop for the day, but it was good one! Constructed in 1869, Cedar Cliff Falls is a 24 ft tall man made waterfall on Massies Creek in Cedarville, Ohio and is located in a county park called Indian Mound Reserve. The dam at one time was 40 ft tall and aided in powering the Harbison Mill. The mill closed its doors in 1917 and several layers of the dam were removed to reduce water usage passing down the overflow. I’m not normally a big fan of man made waterfalls, however there is always an exception to the rule and this one is certainly that! When standing over the falls the symmetry of the waterflow is absolutely captivating! Honestly, it’s captivating anywhere you stand, so if you get a chance I highly recommend paying this urban beauty a visit!
