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 indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller / Admin. As the main contributor and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my experiences from hikes and backpacking trips on MyHikes for fun on a volunteer basis and I believe that public trail information should be available to everyone.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including hiking , mapping , writing , and publishing new trails with high-quality content... along with building new features, moderating, and site maintainance . I simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your next adventure that you consider making a small donation to help keep the site running.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes user account required) to unlock perks for as little as $0.83/month with a 1-time non-recurring payment 👍 Or you can simply Donate any amount without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing to a donation - both quick and free 😄

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike! ✌
