Quick 1/6mi hike to blue hen falls

Good hike almost 4 miles. Always like seeing the falls. First time taking this trail.

Can be slippery around either falls in winter. Getting down below either falls to take pictures should be done with care due to steep areas. It’s better to go a bit down stream and work your way back than to risk a fall. Can be muddy or wet. Crossing stream is required to get to the lower falls.

Once again it was a beautiful trail, however some of the inclines might make it to difficult for small children. The water fall it self can be accessed from the road so taking the whole trail isn’t necessary in that case. Waterfall is smaller but is just as beautiful as the larger ones.

Trail is beautiful and easy, stair cases and a beautiful view of the waterfall make this a treat to see. Easy for kids, so good as a family outing. Would see this again.

Very scenic! Was pretty greasy because of all the moisture so was fairly difficult throughout most of the hike! Will definitely revisit when it dries out!

This is a beautiful place.

One of my favorites in the area and beautiful sight seeing!

Beautiful trail and great side trails for dog walking!

I did it two weeks in a row. The first week everything was frozen and ice covered. It was very difficult to get down some of the hills, but, the creek was very easy to cross because it was frozen. The next week, it was in the 70's so everything was melted and it was very muddy. The creek was running high because of recent rain so, of course, the boots got wet. Misjudged where to step one time and ended up with water in the boots. It's a nice somewhat challenging trail.

Beautiful rock formations! Lots of parts to explore and a lot of variety in what you see.

Nive variety of elevation, easy to navigate, really beautiful! Not too difficult as there's stairs at the steeper parts. Can definitely get muddy depending on the weather.

Beautiful!! Can get icy depending on the weather but a lot of fun!

Lovely day out for my very first solo hike! Challenging trail at times, especially on some of the hills. Pretty muddy after the heavy rain we got, but absolutely beautiful and just the right amount of uphill vs. flat to make it a challenge, but not extremely difficult. Will be returning on a drier day for sure!

Beautiful in snow and a great workout!

A good and easy hike with lots of places to explore. Huge rock formations covered in moss are everywhere and there’s a decent overlook during the hike.

It can be very secluded if you go at the right times. Really beautiful waterfalls and streams running through this area. One of my favorites.

Nice hike trail is well maintained for winter hiking

This trail was easy, has some stairs and elevation changes. We took the dog and he enjoyed it. The surroundings were all pretty and the waterfall was beautiful with all the ice in the winter.

Easy shaded trail on the boardwalk. Kids loved looking at the rocks. The falls were beautiful.

Beautiful in the winter- even the frozen falls!

Really liked this hike. Went on Thanksgiving Day, so light crowds. Lots to see with the rock formations - the pictures I shared afterwards got lots of attention. Crazy that I used to live three miles up the road, and never hiked it until now!!

The Ledges it was a quick easy trail to hike/walk if you are pressed for time and want to see some very awe inspiring views. The Ledges is what's left from a stream bed from a loooong time ago and now is just these amazing rock formations and eastern hemlock trees. I thought it was super cool to be able to see such amazing scenery so quickly!

Easy trail to get out and experience nature. There were lots of folks with their kids on the trail. Lots of people also with dogs. To reach the Brandywine Falls is accessible by wooden walkway which is an easy way to get a great photo of the falls!
I enjoyed it for a 1.5! mile brisk walk with my dogs on a late November day! November 25, 2017

Great trail for most ages. A regular destination for local hiking groups. Easy connectors to two adjacent loop trails (Boston Run, Salt Run) make extending the hike easy. Great overlook of the Cuyahoga valley.
