Detailed Trail Descriptions from Our Guidebooks

"The Ledges Area of the Virginia Kendall Unit consists of rough terrain with rocks acting as literal stepping-stones throughout. Tiny Haskell Run loops through Happy Days Lodge and serves as a connection to the mostly dense, flat yet scenic Boston Run Trail. Returning to the Ledges via Haskell Run, you’ll hike along ridges surrounded by picnic tables and scenic views of the surrounding Cuyahoga Valley. A connector trail to the nearby Pine Grove Loop Trail offers an opportunity for more mileage. Feeling like a warrior? Pine Grove connects to the Kendall Lake trails (Hike 37) for another 6.5 miles of hiking possibilities."
"This easy 2.3-mile loop is a fun trail that takes you along the base of striking Sharon conglomerate rock ledges and then out to an overlook that provides an expansive view of the Cuyahoga Valley. The vista is especially nice in the fall, but the trail is good year-round, with spring wildflowers, cool hemlock coves in summer, and attractive ice formations in the winter. If you've never hiked the Ledges Trail in Cuyahoga Valley National Park, you're in for a treat. Just a few miles south of downtown Cleveland, you can hop on this short trail and walk along the base of tall Sharon conglomerate ledges before climbing to the top for a sweeping vista of the Cuyahoga River Valley. Begin and end at one of the several excellent visitor centers located in Ohio's only national park."
