Description

From the parking lot, head south towards the trailhead. This trail starts off by climbing up one of the limestone cliff sides next to the creek. It then wanders through the trees for awhile before it descends back down. This is a gorgeous trail, especially during the fall because of the beautiful colors that surround the area.

The colors of fall in the Ledges State Park are absolutely gorgeous. Definitely a great fall hike.

A bit muddy with snow melt, but certainly passable.
