Hayden Falls Park is a two acre pocket park hidden right under the noses of thousands of daily commuters. There is not much signage and only a few parking spots located on the western shore of the Scioto River near the Griggs Reservoir bridge. A set of steps leading down to a boardwalk and an overlook were constructed in 2006.
In the winter, the fall freezes and creates a dazzling 35ft ice curtain formation with tiny trickles heard running behind the shale walls.
In the spring, after the snow melt or a heavy downpour, the water roars over the falls and drowns out the urban noise pollution and it's easy to forget that you are just feet from 45mph thoroughfare.
In the summer, the water slows and the sound changes to that of a gentle shower. The rocky walls of the gorge the encompass the falls are exposed and ferns find a way to take hold.

#localgem A shot of the cascading water from the base of the 35ft tall, 500ft wide Griggs Dam creating a reservoir with a one billion two hundred million gallon capacity. An incredible closeup of Jack Frost's artistic handiwork as the ice crystallizes over the nearly still waters of Hayden Run.

#snow Fun little ice bells on a twig dangling near the waters of Scioto River.
#snow A great blue heron (Ardea herodias) perched atop the dam at Griggs reservoir. Beautiful and easy to get to, you can virtually drive up to the falls. Go early morning in late spring to beat the crowd or after a good rain. A favorite of my walk at Hayden Run Falls. Spring has fully arrived and the bushes and trees have finally decided to show off their beauty. A shot of a Great Blue Heron scouting about as the sun sets behind the Julian Griggs Dam. The dam was built in 1905 and is named after the city's chief engineer at the time. The 500ft long dam creates the Griggs reservoir. A collection of autumn leaves and algae coated stones in the still chilly waters along the Scioto River. A picture at Hayden Run Falls on my short walk through. Spring has fully arrived and the bushes and trees had finally decided to show off their beauty. Ice formations of all shapes and sizes like these could be found all along the shore of the Scioto River glistening like gemstones in the winter sun.

Handcrafted cold pressed juices from sambaFRESH. Smash it and put it in a bottle is about as fresh as you can get. These three were all less than 12 hours old when I picked them up. My thoughts going in was that these juices would taste like grass and dirt with a hint of tolerable flavor. I sampled the entire line and they were all deliciously complex. None of them tasted like A view of the churning waters of the Scioto River just south of the 35ft tall, 500ft wide Griggs Dam. VooDoo is a LONG way away. So, here's the local option: gourmet doughnuts available only on Fridays and Saturdays at the Fremont Goodie Shop. From left to right: Bananas Foster (banana icing, caramel creme filling, roasted and salted caramel), Southern Pecan Coffee (coffee creme filling, coffee icing, roasted and salted pecans), Milky Way (double filled with creme and dulce de leche, topped with chocolate icing and chocolate shavings) and the Black and Gold (black pepper creme filling, golden caramel sea salt icing, topped with two strips of bacon). A couple of bracket fungi with water sprouts from the host tree growing through them along the shore of the Scioto River. Chilaquiles, a traditional Mexican dish with eggs, onion, zucchini, roasted corn, red salsa, corn tortilla strips and pepper jack cheese. Topped with cilantro and served with a side of black beans and house fried tortilla chips. A waffle and a large order of hash browns scattered, double smothered and covered! A Great Blue Heron (Ardea herodias) stalking some dinner at the base of the Julian Griggs Dam. Fried Plantains with a salsa-ranch dipping sauce from Louie's Grill Fusion Restaurant in Hilliard.
Quite an eclectic menu with Cuban, Cajun, Mexican, American and Italian offerings. An ice formation left behind from the splashing waters of the Scioto River resembles the skeleton of a T-rex head.
#snow The Hollywood burger, 1/3lb black Angus seasoned patty, roasted poblano pepper, Gruyere, crispy onions and Chipotle mayo. The dam and cisterns at the south end of Griggs Reservoir. A decaying concrete edifice. No idea what it once was. Walleye Po'boy fully dressed with lettuce, tomato, pickles, mayo and Crystal's hot sauce on a sour dough roll. Not even -18 temperatures can freeze the flow of the water cascading over the 35ft tall, 500ft wide Griggs Dam.
#snow Tex-Mex style Chilaquiles - three scrambled eggs with chorizo, poblano peppers, onions, zucchini, corn, jack cheese and chipotle sauce. Served with corn tortilla chips and black beans.
Quite an eclectic menu with Cuban, Cajun, Mexican, American and Italian offerings. An opening in the mostly frozen over Scioto River gives a gaggle of geese and a raft of ducks a place to frolic.
#snow Fried maduros for an appetizer. The menu said the accompanying sauce was ranch but it was more in the vein of like a crab or seafood dip. Looking north towards Griggs dam, a close up of snow crystals forming on the shore of the Scioto River.
#snow 2018 burger no.2
The Passport 614 Burger from Passport 196 - 1/2lb chef’s blend of ground short rib, chuck and brisket seasoned burger, char-grilled to perfection Crab stuffed walleye topped with salsa rojo and verde, served with black beans, rice, saut?ed seasonal vegetables and Cuban bread. The Buffalo Burger with lettuce, tomato, onion, jalapenos, pepper jack cheese, and hot sauce and a side of shoestring fries. Looking down river from the dam, the waterfowl enjoyed a small space of unfrozen water to wade in under the winter sun.
#snow Beef brisket with vinegar and cole slaw with sides of corn pudding and cucumbers and onions. Steps leading down to Hayden Falls Park. Taken at Hayden Falls Park in Dublin, OH, a suburb of Columbus.
#BvSWater Chiliquiles; Eggs scrambled with chorizo, peppers, onions, corn, zucchini, tortilla chips, all tossed with a smoked chile cream sauce, jack cheese & cilantro, served with black beans. Seafood creole! Cuban omelet. Beef brisket, caramelized onions, black beans, cheese and spices. Dublin, OH Fall colors as seen from the fairway of the courses 8th hole.
