Join us as we hike a portion of the Cuyahoga Valley National Park! This time, we will be exploring Kendall Ledges! Around 320 million years ago, the Cuyahoga Valley National Park and Virginia Kendall Ledges had fast-moving streams coming from the North and East that flowed into an inland sea covering Ohio at that time. The Cuyahoga Valley National Park Ledges are located within the Virginia Kendall Park Area of Cuyahoga Valley National Park. Sand, gravel and quartz pebbles were carried by the water and deposited in a wide delta. After millions of years, this debris in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park compacted and became the Sharon Conglomerate. The milk-white quartz pebbles poking from the Virginia and Kendall Park Ledges are tell-tale signs that these ledges, as well as most of the other cliffs in the region that are named ledges, are comprised of the Sharon Conglomerate.  

We will hike for about an hour or so. Or until people want to finish! We can refuel after our hike at Flury's Cafe, a local diner:Flury's Cafe

DIRECTIONS: From I-271 or I-71, take Route 303 Exit east to Peninsula. Head south on Akron-Peninsula Road and turn left on Truxell Road at the sign for the Ledges. Continue past Kendall Lake to the Ledges driveway on the left. Meet us in the Kendal Ledges Parking Lot.
