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.

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
