Located near the popular Kings Island Amusement Park, this gentle yet consistent cascade down Simpson Creek is one of the larger yet surprisingly unknown waterfalls in the Cincinnati Region of Ohio. The waterfall should be visible from the road, so no off-trail hiking is required to view this beauty!

Kings Island Falls

Getting to Kings Island Falls:
From I-71 take exit 19 and head east then turn right onto Route 22. Follow this for 3 miles then turn left onto Kings Mill Road, drive down this briefly, then turn left onto Socialville Foster Road. The waterfall will be to the left of the road roughly 1/3 of a mile past Kings Mill Road.

Note: This road can sometimes get a little busy, so finding a place to park your car may be a little difficult. One option is to park your car at the T-intersection between Socialville Foster Road and Kings Mill Road. This will require you walk the 1/3 mile to the falls on the side 
of the road, however.
