I'm doing this post because Dundee Falls is a place that has elluded me for oh, well 28 years. I only live 20 miles from there, and being an absolute waterfall fanatic, you'd have thought I WOULD HAVE ACTUALLY OF HEARD ABOUT IT BEFORE! Some girl in my class last year said, "Oh if you like waterfalls, you should go here" and whipped out her phone [yes they are banned in school] and showed me a pic. Of course she is a high schooler and had no clue where it was other than "by Beach City". Um, thanks but no help at all. However, my curiosity was peaked. Several google searches revealed nothing more than some flickr photos, some youtube videos of rock climbers, and a site that says the falls is part of a 1100 acre Wildlife Area. Oh and not to mention several websites quoting: "if you aren't a local you will never find it". No address. No parking coordintates. Nothing. Long story short, a friend and I set off today with nothing more than a name of a road. Talked to some locals. Found 2 incredible waterfalls and an area we will DEFINITELY go back to in order to do some more exploring!
P.S. the parking lot was 100% unmarked with no indication what-so-ever of the magesticness hiding in the forrest.
So it is my hope this blog post and map [ park where the smileys are, on camp road and on dundee wilmont road. each parking area leads to a waterfall; 2 total] help some googlers like me find this Ohio gem. [ Sorry if the map is blurry, you can click on it to see it larger and much more clear. Contact me with questions ].
*update 6/2/2011* I can see googlers arrives on this post every single day! If this has helped you and you did visit the falls, leave a comment and let me know!
