Sharon Woods Waterfalls

Getting to the Sharon Woods Waterfalls
Enter the park at its entrance off Lebanon Road and turn left at the first intersection in the park. Follow the road past the Buckeye Shelter and park at the small lot next to the playground and picnic area. The one-way gorge trail begins on the other side of the street. Follow the trail until it reaches the damn to see all the waterfalls. From the dam you can loop back to your car by turning left onto the Shared Use Trail and staying left on the trail until it crosses over the road and becomes the Fitness Trail. Follow the Fitness Trail for roughly a mile until it becomes the Shared Use Trail again and then turn left to return to where you parked. We’ve attached a map below if our directions have confused you in any way. Good luck!

Sharon Woods Metro Park in Cincinnati contains 3 distinct cascades, the tallest of which being about 6-7 feet tall. Although the area surrounding Cincinnati is quite rugged, few waterfalls are publicly accessible in the area, making this one of the best places to view waterfalls for Cincinnati residents within Ohio. All three of the waterfalls can be viewed on the park’s gorge trail, which follows the cascading creek downstream away from the Kreis Dam at the edge of Sharon Lake.
