Great hike! Connected Ledges, Lake, and Salt Run Trails for 9.5 miles. The Ledges trail had a lot of interesting geology!

Great Lake loop, there are connected offshoot trails which allows you to cut and wind and loop back around to keep it interesting if you go often. I take the pooch and he loves it. The lake is very pretty and you can see ducks and geese and I even seen a huge beautiful fox on a connecting trail. Do be careful as there seem to be a lot more ticks at this park than others.

Nice hike on a hot day—completely shaded. Lots of horses on the trail.

Nice trail. One hilly part but the rest is not too tough. Interesting mix of young forest types and habitats. Passes through some genuinely beautiful areas, but also some heavily impacted/recovering ones. The freeway and the railroad are rarely out of earshot.

This is a great trail for running and hiking. It is mostly flat and doesn't have many roots or big rocks. It's best to go to the left down the big hill first so you don't have to hike a big hill at the end. The trail is near a road for a little bit but you quickly lose it. Not very crowded and it is very shady and cool. Highly recommend for running.

Loved adding connecter trails which made it much more challenging. Very few other people which can be refreshing! Pretty dry but the pine trees still smelled amazing. Cannot wait to revisit and switch up adding other trails and seeing what changes of seasons will bring!

First time and loved it. Took a couple of hundred pictures and finished in 2-1/2 hours. Well maintained trail.

Great, well marked trail with lots of shade and moderate elevation changes. We parked at Kendall lake and took a connecting trail that parallels the main road to get to the trail head. There is a nice little loop around Kendall lake as well where a good amount of people were fishing and picnicking.

This is one of my favorites in the CVNP. It’s never busy, is fairly remote, and takes you through several different ecosystems. It’s great for dogs too.

Wow right off the bat,straight up. Gives your legs and lungs a work out. Beautiful scenery. Well worth the hike. Can’t wait til fall do it again.

Nice hike. I met a group of volunteers who maintain and cleared the trail :) which was very nice. Signs are a bit confusing at times - no biggy. Love the trail and will come back.

This a great hike with some nice inclines to get your heart rate up. I had a little bit of trouble finding the trail head and ended up adding a mile to my hike by doing the lake trail.

A decent trail to run. Caution for roots and rocks but pretty flat and very pretty scenery. Lots of bugs!

Nice trail. Decent elevation. Quiet & peaceful. A little off the beaten path.

This trail is pretty easy 80% of the time, but the dip in the middle can sneak up on you. I’d like to stop by the lake in the middle next time, but other than that there isn’t much to this trail.

Nice trail. Not busy. There is a lack of any specific "views ". A good hike but not photo worthy

Great Trail I never knew was there! I would put this in the moderate to hard category for the area due to all the climbs and difficult footing. It was 90 degrees that afternoon which made if sticky and buggy too. Lot of mosquitoes so bring your bug spray. Many Pileated Woodpeckers and Wood Thrush in the area. We will be back to do this one again!

Perfect trail for a 94 degree day. This trail is 80% flat and in the shade of some of the oldest forest in the valley. The trail is well marked with a lot of cut backs to shorten the trail if needed. Lots of birds in the area, scarlet tanagers and pileated woodpeckers can be heard and seen if patient. I will be back to run this trail since it is more like tow path with it's condition, maintenance and few things to trip over.

Great hike with friends today. FYI - the landslide deadfall is easily passable. Through the creek to the left, up the bank and over one tree and back on the trail. Not dangerous.

Unbelievably beautiful trail. The rock formations and lookout points are breath taking . The trail is definitely one of the most popular in the area so expect to be held up by some of the amateur photographers and sightseers. Not a very challenging trail although there are definitely spots where you'll have to watch your footing to avoid rolling an ankle or tripping over a root or rock. Hands down one of my favorite trails to date.

Stunning rock formations! We absolutely loved the mix of slightly steep inclines with plenty of level path for soaking in the views. The ice cold pockets by the caves were so refreshing on a humid day! Would love to do again!

Such I a great peaceful trail. Definitely moderate, especially when wet like it was for me, but this is just what I was looking for when wanting a nice way to kill a couple hours.

It’s a beast for trail running.

What an adventure this trail was! Well marked, saw six or seven hikers with their dogs. The map was a lot of help because of the various forks in the trail. A little loud from the turnpike traffic, but the trail leads you right up close to it which was pretty cool!

The last mile or so is currently closed off from a landslide. When you hit the abandoned road the second time, go back to where the trail spit you out the first and take it all the way back.

I stupidly wanted the challenge of climbing up the landslide, which was incredible to do, but so so dangerous!! The soil was incredibly loose, so please dont attempt it!!

Awesome trail. Would hike again!

This was a very fun trail, especially in the mud. There are a couple of good climbs that will give a nice workout. Compared to some of the other trails around here it could be considered hard but I didn't think it was too difficult. Beautiful hiking and will repeat.

This hike I found to be easy at parts and difficult in others. We attempted to go down the hill where the mud slide was but the trees were so bad and the trail was destroyed on the other side of the creek. So listen to signs unless you want to fight through some trees or make the walk back up the hill. Other than that everything was awesome. The trail gets super muddy at parts even when it hasn't rained. There's a part where you end up by the highway and it gets loud. It was very beautiful overall and a challenging hike.

Beautiful trail, lots of steps and a big hill, but totally worth it. Its mileage is what it says, but you can take the cut off partway through if you don't want it to be as long.

combining ledges and Pine Trail make for a wonderful 5 mile hike. Ledges Trail is the centerpiece of Cuyahoga National Forest. although only 2 miles long be prepared to wander off-trail through the stunning rock formations along this Trail. Pine Trail is a 3-mile loop that showcases the deciduous trees and Lush plant life of Cuyahoga
