NATURAL TREASURES IN OHIO
Charleston Falls Preserve
Why It's a Natural Treasure
Encompassing more than 216 acres of prairie and forests, Charleston Falls Preserve is home to a diverse selection of plants, such as wild columbine, walking fern, purple cliff break and rock honeysuckle. Majestic
oak, hickory and maple trees offer an umbrella of shade during the dog days of summer, while Charleston Falls
provides a wet spray to cool boardwalk visitors.
The Nature Conservancy helped acquire 200 acres of the preserve, whose popular water features are part of a system that helps nourish the Great Miami River, which ultimately feeds into the Ohio River, an important source of drinking water for millions.
What to See and Do
Visit the Falls Observation Boardwalk for a view of "Miniature Niagara" or take a stroll along the Cedar Pond Trail. If you're looking for a longer walk, try the Red Bud Valley Trail and keep your eyes open for resident animals such as red fox, pileated woodpeckers and wild turkeys.
