The Ledges Overlook looks west over an expansive view of the Cuyahoga Valley. The bare rock of the Ledges provides a natural viewing platform. From here, visitors can appreciate how the park protects a large tract of forested open space between the cities of Akron and Cleveland. The scenery is stunning in any season.

The Ledges Overlook is a stop on the Ledges Trail. This 1.8-mile trail loops around this outcropping of Sharon Sandstone and Conglomerate. The up-close views of the rocks from the trail contrast with the broad view from the overlook.
