The Icebox Cave Trail in Cuyahoga Valley National Park, OH, is an easy 1.1 mile out-and-back hike to the Icebox Cave along the Ledges Trail.
The trail brings you down to a large rock/cliff path which winds through massive boulders. There is a bat cave within the ledges (Ice Box Cave), which has been blocked off to visitors with a large metal gate in an effort to slow the spread of a disease to the bat population.
The hike starts off at the main parking lot and follows the trail north to a 4-way junction. Take the right-hand turn here to head downhill towards the Ledges Loop Trail. Once you hit the Ledges Loop, take a left-hand turn to head toward Icebox Cave.
There's a short road that leads to a large parking lot at the end where you can find the trailhead. Google's directions (in the Get Directions link) should get you to the parking lot; however, be sure to look for a brown sign labeled "Ledges" on Kendall Park Rd - this is the road for parking.
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 (Founder & Admin). As the Founder, main contributor, and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my trips with over-detailed write-ups 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, site maintainance, and app development for iOS and Android . I simply ask that if you find MyHikes' trail guides helpful to please consider becoming a Supporter to help keep the site, iOS, and Android apps available to everyone.
Supporters unlock website and in-app perks with a one-time payment of $25 (you renew) 😎👍. Or you can simply make a Donation of your choice without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing - both quick and free 🎉
