Great trail, but we got a little off track and the terrain got a little rough for our 3 and 6 year olds. Met a few other displaced hikers as well, and found our way out together. Beautiful scenery though, and we will be back.

Always amazed that this is in Cleveland. Such a neat hike.

One of my new favorites. So many crevices and different spots to explore! Great exercise too!

Trail clearly marked & well maintained.

Used to love whipps as a kid. Too much garbage now too dangerous for puppy paws with so much broken glass. Sad.

A great trail for adventuring! You can make the ledges as challenging as you like.

Lots of cool birds doing the flying activity, including two bald eagles doing a little fishing. Plenty of herons and turkey vultures too. The lake is a cool backdrop to the hike, even if the terrain isn’t challenging. Too many people though.

there's a portion of the trail where it's on the road therefore not very fun. however the rest of the trail is beautiful.

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!

I love this trail. So much to see. Last time I was there there were so many huge turtles and fish jumping out of the water. You can also kayak here and take a dip in the dam reservoir. It’s a nice long hike and it’s just so beautiful. I’m going back tomorrow.

Easy trail!

A nice mid morning hike. Not too long and has some hills. I did not see anyone else on the trail.

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

This my go-to if I’m not in the mood to search for a new trail. Be sure to use the nature trail (instead of the paved path) for a proper “hike”. I usually start by the Marina where there is plenty of parking. The nature trailhead is just behind the shop.

Beautiful hike. It felt longer than expected for some reason. I'm usually into waterfall/rock formation hikes, so this was a nice change of pace. Glad I went. Fairly easy with fantastic lake views and mild hilly terrain to make it really interesting. Park at the boat rental area and hike counter clockwise.

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!!!

If you like walking on lots of paved trails/access roads then you’ll like this one. Otherwise it’s not worth the effort. Could be marked better, makes it easier to locate the trail. Not impressed. Didn’t like it. Will not go back. Only positive was the challenge in the elevations.

Fun trail to hike but not all that well marked. Beautiful sights on the lake, but I'm not crazy about how much of it was on or near the road

I wasn't able to complete the entire loop today because there were workers cutting down a tree and I could not pass, so I had to turn around and go back.

I'm not sure how much of this trail is tow path, but it seemed like most of it passed the smaller lake loop is and that's not super fun for me. I prefer to be on softer ground, especially in hiking boots.

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
