Mediocre hike. The falls are pretty in the fall!

One of my new favorites. So many crevices and different spots to explore! Great exercise too!

Great family hike with serene waterfalls. Friendly trails.

PLEASE DO NOT GO HERE, PER CVNP: CVNP resource managers and rangers have noted a huge increase in foot traffic to an area in the park known as Twin Sisters Falls. This area has long been a lightly visited off-trail drainage containing a small waterfall and high quality riparian habitat. Recently, a social trail with ropes and roughly constructed steps has appeared. The area is now, for the first time, littered with trash. This drainage is one of the few riparian zones in the park relatively free of damage and has been used as a baseline for habitat monitoring. Unprecedented resource damage is occurring literally in front of our eyes. We are also very concerned about the potential for injuries to hikers in what has always been a trail-less area. Due to the steep and remote nature of the falls, it is likely that a technical rescue would be necessary to evacuate any non-ambulatory patient.

We are requesting persons providing guidance to the public on how to access this trail-less area to voluntarily remove those instructions.

A big part of the mission of the National Park Service is to preserve special places. Finding ourselves in the position of having to close an area in order to protect it is very troubling. This request is being made in the spirit of helping the National Park Service fulfill its mission to this and future generations. Any assistance from you would be greatly appreciated.

Should you have any questions or concerns or need further information please do not hesitate to contact us at any time, by emailing cuva_social_media@nps.gov or cuva_info@nps.gov. Thank you.

Great hike! Connected Ledges, Lake, and Salt Run Trails for 9.5 miles. The Ledges trail had a lot of interesting geology!

This seemed shorter than 2.7 miles! Not difficult, could be challenging for some when climbing over logs blocking the riverbed. There are definitely dogs allowed in the park, despite the tag on this page. The instructions for how to get to the site were super helpful:

Basically you're going to walk under the second bridge and keep going down that trail until you see a sign on the right that says Mudcatcher. Cross the little stream and go up the hill, and there's a path behind the dam. Then follow the riverbed!

The Twin Sisters were more like trickles when we went, but I'm definitely going back in the winter when they are frozen!

very fun and beautiful trail. the falls are beautiful to see at any time of year. trail has multiple access points to enter to play in/Wade in the river. most times we have visited we were able to watch great blue harons fishing.

neat trail that winds around and through some neat rock formations, very pretty. dog / kid friendly

Lovely easy trail along the ledges of large rock formations. The stairway created by the civilian conservation corps is really cool and worth checking out. The signage can be confusing. We ended up doing a loop on the happy days trail and then back on track with the ledges.

Used to love whipps as a kid. Too much garbage now too dangerous for puppy paws with so much broken glass. Sad.

Great trail for all levels of experience. The trail markings are a little confusing. We figured out that the Stanford trail splits off into the Brandywine trail and were fine from there. Has a decent incline for a quick trail. The falls really were gorgeous. You take a nice boardwalk/stairs down to two different observation decks. There are signs not to climb down to the water but several people were down there so we climbed down too. It was slippery and I fell down once but my goodness you can’t beat the view.
Everything was very well maintained. The bathrooms were clean and eco-friendly. There were trail maps and state park brochures for taking. We were very impressed.

This is a great trail for running and hiking. It is mostly flat and doesn't have many roots or big rocks. It's best to go to the left down the big hill first so you don't have to hike a big hill at the end. The trail is near a road for a little bit but you quickly lose it. Not very crowded and it is very shady and cool. Highly recommend for running.

Take the Stanford/ Brandywine trail. A fun walk down through the woods down the gorge to the river bed then back up around to the falls.

A great trail for adventuring! You can make the ledges as challenging as you like.

Whipps ledges is an amazing trail on the Hinckley Reservation. I finally had the chance to visit and it's nothing short of beautiful. Check it out if you are in the area!

Great trail and enjoyed even on a hot day ! Lots of shade on this trail.

Great easy hike. Enjoyed it very much.

Fun, quick hike.

Easy hike; well marked course. Both falls are worth the trip; definitely take a dip in the water.

Rustic trail so fun to adventure on. Would be awesome to see when river is running higher. I’ll be back to see it then

Great trail! Love the waterfalls! Def will be getting your feet wet!

Clearly marked for Blue Hen falls. go past the end of trail sign, be prepared to cross water and if it has been raining you will get wet feet. Trail is not marked but it's relatively clear where to go. Fun trail, especially with a dog!

Beautiful

Definitely a moderate hike; lots of ups and downs and multiple small river crossings. I saw quite a few people on horses and there was bit of poop, but it never bothered me.

There were two large fallen trees on the trail while I was there. Not a problem for hikers, but could be for horses.

This is definitely my favorite hike at Mill Creek and one of my all time favorites in Ohio. It is unbelievable that this beautiful strip of nature runs through the middle of the city. The hike as suggested makes a figure 8 trail through the park and includes the best scenes and trails that the park offers.
