Southeast from Columbus, Ohio on State Route 33 to Logan. Go west into Hocking Hills State Park, following 664 to 374. Past The Inn at Cedar Falls (highly recommend for lodging and meals) on left and then right at bottom of hill. Two parking areas. Short hike down into the gorge.
Always best to photograph this area in early morning light. Recommend mid-week because day hikers can be pretty steady during weekends, often walking into your frame when composing your shot. Watch the weather for steady rain a day or two before visiting. Cedar Falls, as well as the other waterfalls and streams in Hocking, tend to go dry from about mid-June through September. Photograph in wet, overcast weather. Oftentimes there is a nice mist rising from the gorge that works wonderfully with the towering Hemlocks.
Cedar Falls is one of the most scenic and visited waterfall in the Hocking Hills State Park of Southeastern Ohio. Incredible ice formations over the falls from about early January through February, early spring rains get the water moving again, often at an incredible rate. I captured this image the first weekend in March 2011.
