  • The Hinckley Reservation offers many different activities. At the boat house you can rent boats, etc. You can also have a picnic, swing or search for crayfish in the river. At the spillway, there is a beach with a lifeguard, that you can swim at. At Worden Ledges (off Ledge rd) you can hike trails with stone carvings. At Whipps Ledges you can do hiking with huge rock formations jutting out. This park has something for everyone. There are 2 great paths around Hinckley Lake. The outer trail is paved with large hills, the inner trail is gravel/dirt and closely circles the lake. There are also baseball fields and pavilions.
  • Great park with an array of activities the whole family can enjoy. Great Fishing in the "top" of the lake, multiple dock areas with a boathouse for pontoons, motor boats, canoes, and kayak rentals, bait, fishing gear, and many other things. The "bottom" of the lake as locals will refer to it to is for swimming. Under the spillway is a range of 1-10 foot waters with 2 small beach areas. Animals are NOT allowed in the swimming areas and must be kept to the north behind the bridge/wall where it meets the East Branch of the Rocky River. Waters are mostly calm, and the river is a great rocky area to catch crayfish and small garter snakes. The ledges are a great places for hiking and walks, but can sometimes be a bit difficult for young children, pets, and anyone with physical hindrance. If starting at the top of the ledges, there's a bit of climbing required to get down, and If you're afraid of heights, would not be a good option for you. If you start from the "bottom" of the ledges its not so much climbing, but hiking up the steep hill does take a bit of work. For a less intensive walk, the 2 paths around the lake are fairly easy. There is a paved bike/walking path that follows the road and a gravel path that gets closer to the lake. Many other activities and sights to see, check out the Cleveland MetroParks website.
  • If you're out of shape like me, you may be in for a rough time! I walked up the ledges today and realized how badly I needed exercise just to climb the initial hill. After a while, I got used to it and really enjoyed everything. I just wish people were more considerate and didn't leave trash everywhere. This park if for everyone. Show some respect!
  • This is the park I grew up at and still revisit as often as possible. Plenty of paths, both paved and trail, including specific trails for horses. Swimming, kayaking, paddle boarding, plenty of water activities to do (outside of water skiing) Incredibly busy during holidays (Memorial Day, 4th of July, etc.), but easy enough to enjoy the rest of the year. Typical Metropark restrooms and water fountains however. Not the best, not the most comfortable, but they work!
  • Beautiful park, very clean and very safe. Worth the visit. Bring the family and have a picnic. Don't forget comfortable shoes!
