Rock Run Falls by Tina Karle
Rock Run Falls
Although not particularly large, Rock Run Falls (also known as Lake Katharine Falls) is incredibly scenic. The waterfall cascades peacefully down a rock face in a grove of hemlocks, far from any road or parking lot. The waterfall is located in the Lake Katharine Preserve, a 2000+ acre park that shares many similar characteristics with the nearby Hocking Hills State Park.
Getting to Rock Run Falls:
The park is located at 1703 Lake Katharine Road, Jackson 45640. Once at the trailhead, take the 2.5-mile Pine Ridge Trail, which will take you past cliffs, hemlock forests, and Lake Katharine before passing over Rock Run Falls
