Nelson-Kennedy Ledges State Park

Nelson-Kennedy Ledges State Park


Location:Near Cleveland, in the northeast corner of the state.
Facilities:Picnic areas, hiking trails (3 miles).
Activities:Hiking, picnicking.
Special Features:Park features interesting rock formations that are among the few outcrops in northern Ohio still exposed to view. The sandstone cliff formations are the result of erosion (wind, water freezing and thawing) that wore away at the softer rock layers. As these soft layers eroded, large blocks of rock called slump blocks fell away, leaving more resistant layers to form ledges above.
