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.

I hike the orange trail on a regular basis with my 1 year old daughter on a back pack carrier. She loves this trail. I chose this trail because it is heavily shaded by the Osage trees.

Nice, clean trail, but no where to sit and rest until the end.

All the trails at EastFork are great, the only request I would have would to add more trail markers as some of the trails share common links and its easy to get off course.

short quick hike. beautiful.

Nice climb with beautiful view of the Ohio River from the top. The parking lot is not marked but the all trails app assured us that we were at the right spot for the trail head.

If you are up for a leisure stroll surrounded by some woodlands and a scenic marsh then this trail is for you! Not a lot of canopy, so I'd recommend an early evening walk as you can catch a great view of the sunset. Wildlife present included a deer, a variety of Egret birds, butterflies, other micilaneous birds and some fireflies. Not a trail for anyone looking for strenuous activity but perfect for a peaceful walk surrounded by nature.

A pretty walk. I am used to hills so this is flat . My granddaughter & I walked around most of it. No shade . Easy walk for the children.

Don’t take your kids or pets on this trail! Path was poorly marked along most of the way. Also it’s not complete trail. You will be walking on the road for 2 approximately 1 mile segments. I don think we will be doing this again.

Lots of trails not on map so it's fun to explore.Lots of good elevation changes to get a good workout

Pretty difficult for the first few miles on the Buckeye Trail portion, but still a lot of fun. The Towpath is a good break while you walk back. Some cool views along the way.

There are a couple trees/obstacles along the Buckeye Trail when I went; was not a problem though.

A really good park. Our first time here and we thoroughly enjoyed it. We didnt walk the hole trail. It was a gorgeous day today after having temps with heat indexes over 100* and a lot of people were taking advantage of it. The foot bridge on the West side was closed. We would have liked to have been able to go that route but for our first time out, we have no complaints. The trails were well maintained and I made mention to my husband that I only saw 1 piece of trash during our whole trip. that makes for an enjoyable experience. Looking forward to another trip out that way to travel another trail !

The trail was ok. I wish it was marked better. The cave was beautiful. I went early so that was enjoyable! Towards the end there were TONS of people out hiking! I would say I enjoyed Mohican better but I do like the caves.

Simply gorgeous. Especially in the fall and winter.

This trail provides one of the best payoffs in the Hocking region. Rockbridge is fantastic and might be the impressive geological feature in the area and it is well worth the hike.

Good workout. I hiked the A trail which was just about 4 miles on a Friday evening and it was great. It was a bit of a roller coaster kind of a trail which I suppose its great for all the mountain bikers, and believe me there were plenty of them on that evening. I believe I was passed seven times by riders. The trail shows plenty of signs of treadmarks just about everywhere, so be prepared to be on the lookout for bikes coming up behind you. After a while I was getting kind of annoyed by the constant up-and-down topography, but again this trail is better suited for riders more than walkers. Something I found problematic was many roots and rocks along the entire trail. I found myself having to very much concentrate on just what was a few steps ahead of me so as not to trip, instead of being able to look around and enjoy the scenery. All told, a good workout.

Great trail. Has a fishing pond for kids 15 yrs and under. Definitely going back.

Well, it started out nicely enough through a pretty forested area with quite a bit of elevation change to keep things interesting along the Hemlock Trail and Fern Trails. Once we hit the Cemetery Ridge Trail, things got less interesting, the trail became more like an access road, and it stayed that way until we began our descent back to the parking area. This would be a 3.5-4 Star hike if you removed that portion f the cemetery ridge trail.

nice

This is a very nice hike that provides a bit of elevation change, a nice little piece of pine forest, some interesting rock formations, and at least one nice summer view. Well worth the side trip if near the Hocking Hills region.

we our at Adams run one of my favorite places on 83 degree today with the dogs

Trail is marked very well, really enjoyed my hike here.

A must do in the evening to watch sunset on the ledges! Easy & fun hike!

It's a well groomed, easy trail with beautiful views of the city and lake. Lots of birds and wildflowers make it an enjoyable walk.

Nice overnighter. We started from the Iron Furnace trailhead and hiked counterclockwise. to campsite no. 2, got up early and hiked out the next morning. Follow the orange blazes until you get to waypoint K, then follow the white blazes back to the trailhead.
It was 90 degrees the day we hiked in, so it was harder than we expected. The forest was beautiful and there was some pleasant topography along the way.
Mosquitos were horrible, requiring multiple applications of Deet. Lots of Rambler Rose, blackberry and nettles line the trail, but these could be held back with trekking poles. Consider wearing gaiters or long pants and take plenty of water if you go in mid summer.
The campsites were well chosen and had ample space for multiple parties. No tables or fire rings, but privies are provided and, best of all, piped in water is available.
