Hayden Falls, located within Griggs Nature Preserve, is on the West side of the Scioto River, just along Hayden Run Road, West of Griggs Reservoir bridge. A boardwalk, steps and an overlook were constructed in 2006 to aid in accessibility of the community viewers, but as to protect the natural ecosystem as well. There are a few picnic tables on the upper level and a small parking lot is also available.

Want to visit Hayden Falls? The sign for the small parking lot for Hayden Falls says Griggs Nature Preserve, and this small parking lot is located along Hayden Run Road, in between Dublin Road and Riverside Drive. This park includes a unique gorge habitat that only occurs along the western shore of the Scioto River. This ecosystem is home to a beautiful 35-foot waterfall and also rare and endangered plants. 

Did you know you aren’t supposed to climb Hayden Falls? There are endangered plant species on the actual cliff faces, which makes climbing Hayden Falls a serious environmental crime – and it’s important to protect the endangered plant species!
