Feel like you’re far from home – in your own backyard.

Wonder and discovery – like you’re the first to see it.

It’s great to have you here! Essentially, Indian Mound Reserve is three parks in one – Peterson Park on the west end, Williamson Mound at the north point, and Cedar Cliff Falls on the east side, just outside Cedarville. Each is a unique experience, and all are connected by a robust network of hiking trails.

Indian Mound Reserve is a park with an eventful past – both anthropologically and geologically. There are 169 acres of beautiful sights to take in, and a rich history to discover. Complete with eight trails, a waterfall, unique rock formations, and a pre-1825 restored log house, the Indian Mound Reserve beckons you to come and experience it.

Learn more about this fascinating park.

This site is here to serve you in your exploration of the park. Whether you’re visiting this page from home or out on the trails, there is much to see and learn. So, let’s get started!

Parking in the grass and along the roadways is prohibited. All cars must be in designated parking spaces.

Cliff jumping is a violation of park rules and can result in a ticket.

Thank you!

You and your Greene County neighbors funded these improvements through the Greene County Parks & Trails Levy.

Through your support, we’ve built, restored, and rejuvenated Indian Mound Reserve to bring you family and life experiences in Greene County’s beautiful outdoors.

Trails were cleared and restored, and a new bridge was built between Peterson Park and Williamson Mound to connect more than eight miles of trails throughout the Reserve. We built an amazing overlook at Cedar Cliff Falls, where you and your family can better experience the falls’ power. And the restored 1800s log house will be the home of educational programs. Rehabbed the existing Peterson bridge and gazebo and added new covered picnic tables.
