Ledges Loop Trail

2.5 Miles


Dogs (leashed)

The Ledges Trail at Cuyahoga Valley National Park is a 2.5 mile loop hike that brings you along massive rock bluffs (ledges), up to an amazing lookout point, and over to Ice Box Cave.

The loop itself is about 2 miles long, but you'll need to hike in along connector trails for a total of about 0.5 extra miles - hence, 2.5 miles total. Alternatively, you can shorten the hike by heading south from parking and hitting the trail near the lookout point first.

This is a must-see loop hike at Cuyahoga Valley National Park as the trail brings you along numerous impressive rock ledges. Dogs are allowed here, but biking is not. This is a very popular trail in the park as well, so prepare for a crowd near Ice Box Cave as well as the southern lookout point.

Parking: To get to the parking lot for the trailhead, drive to the coordinates provided and turn onto the street at with the sign labeled "Ledges". Follow that road all the way to the end to a large parking lot.
