Description

Fantastic geologic features combined with a scenic run to create one of the park's most popular attractions. For visitors looking the escape from the bustle of the Cleveland area, this spot is the perfect getaway. The real star of the area is the Sharon Conglomerate, a rock group that is known for its tendency to leave alcoves, crevices, and caves. Millions of years old, the shapes and forms of the Sharon Conglomerate captivate the imaginations of visitors both young and old. While you're visiting the area, be sure to work your way up a rock staircase to a spectacular overlook. Use caution, as you'll be perched on a large cliff ledge!

Once you've enjoyed your time at the top of the cliffs, enjoy coming back down to take in petroglyphs left behind from a bygone era.

Short Walk: This area is accessed by a short-medium length run, though the route is rocky and can be strenuous.
