While it may be one of the smallest state parks in Ohio, Nelson-Kennedy Ledges makes up for its lack of size in its astonishing scenery of stunning conglomerate cliffs and ravines.
Starting at the the parking lot off of OH SR 282, cross the road and you'll arrive at the base of the conglomerate cliffs that give the park its name.
From there, follow the blue blazed trail to get the best views and overall experience of the park. The blue blazed trail follows the base of the cliffs and allows you to get up close and personal with the ledges without too much difficulty.
To make the trip even more memorable, return to the parking lot via the more strenuous red blazed trail that runs in between and under the cliffs, with some of the passages getting so tight that those of a wide frame may have difficulty passing through.
