Ohio Day Trip: Chagrin Falls

Bob and I went on a day trip to Ohio this past Saturday (April 6).  We saw three waterfalls, a covered bridge and a few birds.  In my previous blog posts I shared photographs of Brandywine Falls, the Everett Road Covered Bridge, and the Beaver Marsh and heron rookery — all three of which are located in Cuyahoga Valley National Park.

After photographing the Great Blue Heron at the rookery, we left Cuyahoga Valley National Park and ate lunch at a nearby Texas Roadhouse.  We both enjoyed steak entrees.  After lunch we drove to the picturesque village of Chagrin Falls, which was about a 30-minute drive from Cuyahoga Valley National Park.  The second waterfall that we saw during our day trip was right in the middle of Chagrin Falls.

There are two vantage points from which to see the Chagrin Falls waterfall.  A boardwalk leads down to an observation platform from each vantage point.  The following photographs and video were taken from the first vantage point.  You can see the boardwalk for the second vantage point in the first photograph.  In addition to viewing Chagrin Falls from the observation platform, we ventured down to the river bed for a third vantage point.

This is the second time that we have visited this waterfall.  Our first visit was in early August last year.  There hadn’t been much rainfall, so we saw very little falling water during that visit.  Provided below is a photograph from our August 2012 visit.  Notice the big change in water volume between that visit and our visit this past Saturday!

After looking at the waterfall, we climbed back up to Main Street.  We went inside the Popcorn Shop, where Bob enjoyed a cup of coffee and I enjoyed a Vanilla Custard cone.   Bob said that the coffee was good.  The Vanilla Custard cone was so rich and creamy; delicious!.

There was one more thing about Chagrin Falls that we liked … MOTORCYCLES!

I mentioned to Bob that we should ride to Chagrin Falls on the motorcycle one day.  He agreed.
