The relatively extreme topography in this area is due to the Blackhand Sandstone (so named because of Native American graphics on the formation near Newark, Ohio), a particular formation that is thick, hard and weather-resistant, and so forms high cliffs and narrow, deep gorges.

  1. "Corkscrew Falls" is on private property. I am a member of the family who owns part of it. We WILL prosecute trespassers (Yes, we are tired of the mess). It is NOT in the State Park. Do not violate the laws, please. Besides, the photo, while beautiful, misrepresents the falls, which is no taller than 7′ high at best. Water does not always fall over the rock formation. Your visit will be disappointing and illegal. Perhaps if you persist in inviting people to our property, you would like to contribute to our increased liability insurance ? Not kidding. Lawyers contacted. Legal action possible. Check out your facts before you promote places in the future.
