Whipps Ledges

Whipps Ledges is located in Hinckley, Ohio only a few minutes away from the Hinckley Bathhouse and lake from the last adventure post.

I have been there a couple times before, but this time we found a beautiful path that I didn’t even know was there.  This path took us through the woods to the stairs that lead to the ledges.

After ascending the stairs….

…we explored the bottom portion of the ledges.

Eventually, we made our way up to the top of the ledges.  Some paths are easier than others and some areas that allow you to reach the top involve a little bit of climbing.  Some people set up their professional climbing equipment in order to scale the ledges.

Just relaxing on a ledge taking in the view.  🙂

We made our way down and found this sign:

Overall, it was a lot of fun, but next time I will need actual shoes.  I bet it would also be really pretty there in the fall.
