HIKING LEDGES TRAIL Cuyahoga Valley National Park, Brecksville, Ohio

Hiking Team: Dave Miller, Rosie Miller

Date: September 20, 2023

This 1.8-mile trail circles a plateau of rock formations and cliffs. The trail is rocky and unpaved with an elevation change of 80 to 100 feet. Ice Box Cave is just off the trail but was inaccessible to protect the bats living there. Halfway around the trail, we came upon the Ledges Overlook which is a natural rock viewing platform with an opening in the trees which gave us a super view of the Cuyahoga Valley. Stepping down some large rock steps I almost stepped on a four-foot-long black rat snake nestled within the rocks.
