Bridal Veil Falls Bedford Reservation

If you are looking for waterfalls in Ohio, check out Bedford Reservation in Cleveland Metroparks. This is a gorgeous park right in the city of Walton Hills that is home of a breathtaking gorge and creek surrounded by hiking tails, bridal tails, picnic sites, golf, mountain biking trails, and over 70 cascades and waterfalls!! The Great Falls of Bedford Creek are by far the most impressive of the park with a 220 foot drop and you should check them out – but our favorite waterfall at Bedford Reservation are the Bridle Veil Falls with water tumbling down 30 ft. over shale gorge in hardwood forest, reached from the Buckeye Trail.

It is a short walk and easy trail to the waterfalls and once you get there, you’ll walk down the boardwalk, over a bridge and down a hill for scenic views from all angles. Plus, there is an observation deck where you can see the falls from afar (top picture) and the deep gorge and stream they fall into (below).

We were lucky enough to see a couple horses cooling off in the stream above the falls too. This is part of the Birdle Veil Falls Trailhead which has 10 distinct sections for horseback riders – so please be aware as there may be horses along the way!
