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.

Nice, easy hike with some interesting landscapes to explore. Walking through the ravines and seeing everything covered in moss was fun. Worth exploring if you are at the National Park.

Beautiful, well maintained trail.

One of CVNP’s most popular hikes. Great for kids and kids at heart who like to climb around the ledges. Nice view from the top.

This is a beautiful trail to hike when there is snow on the ground. I went on a weekday so there were not many people around. Great place to take the family.

I found this trail kinda boring. On the upside, it is quiet (except for the people ...lots of traffic) and peaceful. On the downside I found it dark and uninteresting. It is an easy hike ...good if you want a fun adventure with grade school age kids, or a fun walk in the woods if you aren't really into hiking. Serious hikers will be disappointed.

A good and easy hike with lots of places to explore. Huge rock formations covered in moss are everywhere and there’s a decent overlook during the hike.

Really liked this hike. Went on Thanksgiving Day, so light crowds. Lots to see with the rock formations - the pictures I shared afterwards got lots of attention. Crazy that I used to live three miles up the road, and never hiked it until now!!

The Ledges it was a quick easy trail to hike/walk if you are pressed for time and want to see some very awe inspiring views. The Ledges is what's left from a stream bed from a loooong time ago and now is just these amazing rock formations and eastern hemlock trees. I thought it was super cool to be able to see such amazing scenery so quickly!

Great trail for most ages. A regular destination for local hiking groups. Easy connectors to two adjacent loop trails (Boston Run, Salt Run) make extending the hike easy. Great overlook of the Cuyahoga valley.
