Visit Indian Run Falls
Indian Run Falls is a hidden gem located in Dublin, Ohio. The site covered 3.5 acres of land. It is located in the heart of Old Dublin between the new library and the post office. You can access it from either behind the new library or the post office. The trail runs between the two places.
What makes Indian Run Falls so special is the pristine waterfalls and streams. The area used to be home to the Wyandot Tribe.
Dublin provided access to the area by adding in trails, observation decks, a shelter house, and a walking bridge.
Sadly, some people have walked deeper into the water area, down to the waterfall, and jumped from it. This is not safe and actually illegal. In addition to getting severely injured, you also face a misdemeanor charge along with countless fines and court costs if you are found guilty of jumping.
The waterfall is an estimated 12-15 feet plunge down and the crest is estimated at 20 feet wide. The water flow is moderate, but changes often with rainfall. There are smaller cascades upstream that are equally as beautiful.
The trail at Indian Run Falls is considered a moderately trafficked out-and-back trail. It is roughly 0.9 miles long. The trail is great for all skill levels, including children. The trail is not really stroller-friendly and not wheelchair-friendly. This trail is best used from April to November.

Cindy’s Insider Ohio Tips!
I believe this is a hidden gem of a hike in Dublin that often goes unnoticed by many. You can start the longer and more scenic trail from behind the Dublin library. However, for a shorter stroll, access the viewpoint of the falls near the Dublin post office. I find that the falls are most captivating after a heavy rain. Remember to stick to the trail and avoid climbing into the falls for safety reasons.
