Getting to Babb Run Falls
A single foot trail leaves the Babb Run Parking lot and follows the Cuyahoga River, giving views of the bluff the Cascade Valley Overlook sits atop of. If you continue on the trail it will pass a creek that spills into the Cuyahoga River, follow this creek upstream to reach the waterfall. Good luck!

Babb Run Falls is one of the best under the radar waterfalls on public land in Summit County. The waterfall is located in the Babb Run Bird & Wildlife Sanctuary, a small park with low traffic that’s tucked between the larger Cascade Valley and Gorge Metro Parks. Like the name suggests, the park is a great place to see wildlife, so you’re likely to see lots of birds, deer, and other wildlife here. We would like to extend a huge thank you to Anthony Boarman, who was kind enough to send us everything about this waterfall and how to get to it so we could share it with all of you!
