Geauga Park District Naturalist John Kolar believes we have one of Geauga County’s most beautiful and unforgettable sights off trail, and he loves to take people there so they can see its full glory.In his words, “This is a must see!”
Affelder Falls, located in a remote area of The West Woods that is normally closed to the public, is one of the county’s hidden gems. “When the water level is high, especially in the early spring, the falls roar with an amazing beauty that will leave you speechless,” John said. “But even if the water level is low, the falls are still a great spectacle and definitely worth the hike to see them.”
Prepare for unpredictable weather over possibly snow-covered terrain.
This is especially a great photo opportunity, so don’t forget your camera!
Again, unlike last year, REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED for this program, suitable for anyone able to hike one mile, or call 440-286-9516. Call that number, too, with questions.
