“Too much litter”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2013

Nelson Ledges is a nice place to hike. It has a waterfall and many interesting rock formations. However, there is a ton of litter everywhere. It is disappointing that people feel it is okay to leave their trash all around. The restrooms are only permanent outhouses and are very disgusting. There is no running water so bring your own hand sanitizer.

“Nice hike”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2013 via mobile

We took the blue hike, was short but engaging. It's got steep cliffs and stuff so you gotta be careful if you have young ppl in the group. It's manageable though. The day we went there too many mosquitoes and got bitten badly. It rained heavily like 10 mins before we started to hike. Overall would recommend to go.

“Like a smaller Hocking Hills.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2013 via mobile

Beautiful and interesting landscape. The trails are short and easy hikes.

We didn't notice the garbage another reviewer mentioned. Seemed pretty well kept up. Must have been bad timing.

“If you like to hike clime rocks or even repell”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013

This is a wonderful little state park with ample parking a good picnic aria and a very unusual rocky structure with paths. I would warn parents with small children they must keep an eye on them.

“beatufil park but needs better patrols”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2013

It is a beautiful park, but some of the people who frequent it are not the best characters. I get the feeling we are not welcome then, so we drive on. But once in a while we stop and it is very beautiful.
