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.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an independently-owned platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. MyHikes has no investors, no shareholders, no goal to profit, and is owned and operated by one person. We share trails on the interwebs for the fun of it and put a ton of time tracking, writing about, and publishing new trails each month.

But it takes a lot of money, time, and effort (including espresso shots) to run MyHikes. Our content is and always will be free to use, including interactive trail maps and elevation charts, pictures from the trail, and dope points-of-interest like vistas, overlooks, waterfalls, backcountry campsites, abandoned structures, and more...

So we simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your outdoor excursions that you consider making a small donation to help keep our lights on.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes account required) when donating to unlock perks. Or you can Donate without an account.

Either way, thanks for checking out MyHikes and have a great hike!
