Good trail. Better ones nearby. Very hilly. Rock formations are always my favorite.

Beautiful cliffs and lots of places to climb and top rope if you have gear. Less of a trail, more like a bigger area to meander around. Way too many people to enable social distancing during this CV-19 pandemic

Trail is in good shape with no mud. Better off with the Ledges Lake Loop and Worden's Ledges if looking for a couple miles. This one has a few ledges, but the trail isn't special.

Neat place and awesome to see. Make sure to have the right hiking shoes/boots. Sometimes you can catch people rocking climbing.

MAKE SURE YOU FOLLOW THE ORANGE MARKERS. Or else you can end up on some private property. A lot of up hill climbing so make sure you wear good shoes and are up for it. Beautiful rocks. Went around 10am and not many people on the trail towards the end it started to get a little packed. Great rocks for rock climbing. If your scared of your kids going wild and falling down the ledges you might want to pick a different trail or park on the bottom of the hill instead of the top parking lot.

You want to feel like you’re in the mountains, but don’t want to leave Northeast Ohio? Hike this trail, especially when the leaves are off the trees, and enjoy long views, of faraway ridges and down over 350’ to the Rocky River Valley below. Best hiking are in northeast Ohio.

Fun trail! Our trip was on a snow covered day. Would love to come back again during the summer. We followed the orange blazes all the way and the app said we were off trail. A bit rocky at times and had some elevation change, but not too challenging.

Don’t be frightened by the amount of cars in the parking lot. Most people are using the picnic tables and the rest are walking above the cliffs. It’s beautiful and really peaceful. Lots of nooks and crannies to explore. Connects to other trails for an extended hike. Lots of shade!!

What it lacks in distance it makes up for in the scramble. Lots of people climbing, so that was cool to see. Lots of dogs as well.

We loved this trail! The kids liked being able to climb up the boulders and looking at the valley. Probably our new favorite spot!
