Visited on a rainy day. Beautiful and so different than most of Ohio parks. More graffiti and trash that I would’ve like to see. Can get tricky as Trail isn’t marked well, but you shouldn’t get too lost. A must see if you haven’t yet.

it used to be very beautiful place for extremely short time of window walk but yet lately there's just too much graffiti on the rock formations and the trees it's a sad sight

Whipps exceeded my expectations. Along the same lines as Nelson Ledges, but a little less strenuous and felt a little shorter. Amazing rock formations and drop offs. My only negative is that there is a little more graffiti than I can handle. Otherwise, get this hike on your credit list!!!

Wonderful trail with fantastic rock formations and ledges. Also provides some vistas for great viewage.

Highly recommend bringing a map and compass or a very good sense of direction. Technical hike. We lost the trail and ended up coming back out the way we came. Certainly an adventurous, but beautiful trail.

Not marked well. In between markers there are many options that look like trails. Lots of broken glass and litter. Still a great hike but really in need of some maintenance.

A lot of fun sort of made our own path. Plenty to explore a lot of rock climbing not your basic paved path

Trail is a very generous term at Whipps Ledges. The path is poorly marked and very rocky. There are many side-paths that make it confusing to tell where the real path goes. This is definitely not a lunchtime walk. There is also a lot of vandalism and graffiti.

Great trail..you can make the hike as easy or difficult as you would like.

As others have said this trail is poorly marked. Many side trails that look like they are part of the main trail are not. Glad I had the AllTrails GPS map to get back to the trail when I got off track. Pretty crowded as well.

Beautiful area to see. Trail is not well marked at all and there are many secondary trails to choose from. Although area is such that it is best to just head in and wonder around. Take bug spray!

Honestly, I absolutely loved this trail. There were so many different areas to explore and so many different paths to take. The path isn't really labeled at all and you kind of just have to explore to see a lot of it. That just adds to the fun of it though! My biggest complaint is the large amount of trash and graffiti everywhere. It really just takes away from the beauty of the area.

This place was amazing! So many different things to do. This was my first time and I can't wait to go back and climb more rocks.

It was a good trail and I enjoyed it a lot but it wasn't marked very well.

Great trail you really have to watch where you are walking lots of rocks and tree roots. The only reason why I didn't give this 5 stars is because there was a lot of broken glass everywhere as well as trash.

Neat trail, don't let the .5 mile loop fool you, there's plenty of rocks to climb on and around. You can spend quite a bit of time here. Popular. Kids will love it.

Love this place! There is so much to do from hiking to walking to rock climbing and picnicking! This is my go-to place for some adventure.

Nice moderate hiking spot. On a 40 degree Saturday I took my eight year old son which we both enjoined. I plan on going again this summer!

Visited Whipps Ledges Wednesday December 5th 2012 and had the trail to ourselves. Very nice moderately difficult trail with a lot of carvings to look at while navigating the interesting rock formations.
