I first learned about the park this past winter, after a fellow Columbus Audubon “Introduction to Ornithology“ classmate described a research project he had conducted while monitoring the nearby bluebird trail at OCLC. To watch 15-year-old Stephen Bischoff give “Daily Development of Tree Swallows and Eastern Bluebirds Using Photographic and Weight Measurements,” his presentation for the 2014 Ohio Bluebird Society Conference, click here.
Located just steps away from the post office and OCLC, Indian Run Falls Park is a tranquil sanctuary from the bustle of Old Dublin. Park your wheels near two mysterious log cabins made of old railroad ties and cement, then chart your course for exploring this area that was once home to Wyandot tribe members.
Nature trails of compacted gravel and grass pass fields of wildflowers and dense woodlands. A pedestrian bridge spans a waterfall.
Observation decks provide scenic overlooks of rocky cliffs, a gorge and cascading streams.
Benches and shelter houses offer the perfect spots for relaxing or enjoying a picnic.
Indian Run Falls Park can also be accessed near the Dublin branch of the Columbus Metropolitan Library, located at 75 N. High St.
