Rain or Shine
Bring a change of clothing and a change of shoes. I bring rain gear in case it rains. Bring zip lock bags for the fossils you find. Bring camera to take pictures of the fossils and the area you found them in. Bring your own water and snacks. There is no toilets.
This is our favorite spot in Sharonville. It is actually one of several small waterfalls along the Sharon Creek Gorge in Sharon Woods Park. We sometimes see young people swimming here, although a sign says swimming is not allowed. I hate signs like that. If someone wants to be dumb enough to jump off a rock into shallow water, that should be their problem. Maybe the county, who owns the park, is afraid of being sued, so the sign covers their butt.
Anyway, the gorge is a beautiful, quiet, green place with lots of wildflowers, especially in spring. The rocks in Sharon Creek are a very good place to find fossils. We have sighted deer, raccoon and fox here, and there are an abundance of songbirds, as well as an occasional owl. In the gorge, and especially at Buckeye Falls, it's easy to forget that this park is just a small island of green surrounded by interstate highways, railroads, factories, businesses, and houses.
Sharon Woods Park, near the center of Sharonville, may be accessed from either Lebanon Road or Kemper Road.
