Dundee Falls Is A Stunning, Hidden Gem Of A Waterfall In Amish Country

Ohio is full of some truly spectacular natural wonders.

I know, I know, we’ve got quite a reputation for cornfields. But this state is so much more. Throughout the rolling hills and rocky canyons, there are beautiful hidden gems just waiting to be discovered by adventurers.

Dundee Falls is just one of those magical places waiting to be discovered. The fifteen-foot-high seasonal waterfall is located within the Beach City Wildlife Area. Hidden off a primitive trail, the short path passes by sandstone bluffs and hemlock trees on the way to an impressive waterfall.

Dundee Falls definitely qualifies as a hidden gem. It doesn’t get anywhere near the foot traffic of more popular hiking destinations around the state, so if a quiet walk in the woods is your cup of tea, you should make time to visit.

The trail is a total of 2 miles, there and back, and unless it’s rained recently, it’s an easy hike. There’s not much elevation gain but the path isn’t paved, so muddy boots may be a problem.

The main waterfall isn’t very far along the trail at all, so if you’ve only got time for a quick visit, you can easily check out this beauty. The trail is open year-round and the area is always beautiful, no matter when you choose to visit.

Beach City Wildlife Area is located in the heart of Ohio’s Amish Country, which is an area of the state that should certainly make your list of places to check out. Located in northeastern Ohio, the region has a variety of tourist attractions, including wineries, unique lodging, and restaurants.

You can find the trailhead for Dundee Falls at 8265-8581 Dundee Wilmot Rd NW, Dundee, OH 44624. Now get out there and start exploring, friends!
