Ohio Pass Falls lie on the extreme eastern ridge of the Anthracite Mountain Range. They contribute to the headwaters of Ohio Creek. The trail to the falls is not maintained by the Forest Service, therefore you won't find any signage at the trailhead or along the trail. Once you do find the trail it is very easy to follow. I hiked it in mid-July and the wildflowers were beautiful.
To locate the trailhead drive to the summit of Ohio Pass, 10,074 feet. There is an elevation marker and a jeep road next to it. Park on the level area beside Ohio Creek Road and follow the jeep road south. After hiking approximately one half mile on the jeep road, look for a talus slope to the right. The trail will lead up a scree-covered slope that has a few small trees poking through the rocks. It leads away from the jeep road as the trail climbs the slope toward the falls. This trail can be slippery when wet. I wore low-top sneakers and will where boots the next time I hike this trail. Once you reach the falls the views of the Ohio Creek Valley are wonderful.
