Wow! What can I say about this trail that people don't already know about it? Its absolutely beautiful! I have to say though it is a more difficult trail to hike so if you aren't used to rocks, tree roots, up and down sometimes steep embankments, and the occasional slippery spot then I would recommend an easier more level trail. This trail will give you a workout. I saw rock climbers with their climbing gear rappelling down the side of one of the ledges while others were hiking around taking pictures like me. I got so turned around at one point I found myself off the trail and in the middle of the woods. Don't get lost out there if you go. Make a plan and make notes of where the trail markers are. Other than that I had a great time hiking this trail.

Many random trails but easy to follow. Bit challenging at points. Very beautiful ledges, very high. Would take this trail again and again. Definitely not easy.

If it was more clearly marked, it would be a 5. I got to experience some great sections that I would normally not engage by straying from the trail. In terms of variety of hiking, excellent. One less because it’s super easy to come off the loop unintentionally.

Nice trail, but it’s a hike to the top! A bit crowded in the late morning.

This trail is marked easy but it definitely was not. It’s very hilly, rocky, and cliffs. Rocks are beautiful and great views but it is challenging. Wear good shoes!

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.
