Easy trail, but those bringing pets beware - even though we stayed on trail, we had to remove multiple ticks after our walk.

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.

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.

Nice, easy hike with some interesting landscapes to explore. Walking through the ravines and seeing everything covered in moss was fun. Worth exploring if you are at the National Park.

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!

One of CVNP’s most popular hikes. Great for kids and kids at heart who like to climb around the ledges. Nice view from the top.

This trail was beautiful! Highly recommend for an early afternoon hike. Pretty easy and relaxing!

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

Must see trail, be ready to be amazed and to stray off the trail to see even more amazing views.

Beautiful hike!

This is a beautiful trail to hike when there is snow on the ground. I went on a weekday so there were not many people around. Great place to take the family.

I found this trail kinda boring. On the upside, it is quiet (except for the people ...lots of traffic) and peaceful. On the downside I found it dark and uninteresting. It is an easy hike ...good if you want a fun adventure with grade school age kids, or a fun walk in the woods if you aren't really into hiking. Serious hikers will be disappointed.

I expect the distance is the reason for the moderate rating...but this is a pretty flat, easy hike with only one steeper hill midway. Well marked and maintained.

The trail is almost 100% shaded. It’s longer but an easy trail to walk. On Memorial Day found very few people who were hiking.

This was the perfect trail for the first time hiker like myself. It got a little boring just past the halfway point but doing the entire loop without taking the shortcuts was well worth it. The climbs especially the one at the home stretch, were amazing, my legs & glutes got a great workout! Next time I'll pack bug spray and check out the scenery, the gullies and ravines looked very intriguing!

Extremely well maintained trail with many water features to enjoy. I’m a sucker for pine groves and there’s a nice one on this trail.

Park at the Pine Lane Trailhead. Definitely a workout (especially for people just getting back into hiking) on the outward segment of the Buckeye Trail. Be prepared to hike to the top of the ridge. I used the bridle trail to loop back around and hiked back in on the Buckeye Trail. Also be prepared to cross a section of the creek. It was shallow enough that my boots didn't get too wet, but I can imagine after a heavy rain it could get a little trickier to cross.

Great trail for running/training. Nice few sceneries to be seen on the 4 seasons of the year!!

Relaxing path for a stroll, not many people. Benches at the top of the quarry are a nice place to stop and relax. Would recommend boots or shoes you don’t mind getting dirty
