This is an enjoyable walk for those dining at the CCC-era Octagon Picnic Shelter. The trail begins in the southwest corner of the open meadow, which is often used for a softball game or crochet match. The trail is an easy stroll of only 0.5-mile over level earthen path. Features along the trail include an overlook of Ritchie Run, and a mixture of deciduous trees typical of northeastern Ohio forest land. This trail does offer access to the scenic Ledges Trail, The Ledges picnic area, and Pine Grove Trail.
Directions: From Peninsula, OH, Travel south along Akron Peninsula Road about a mile turning left (east) onto Truxell / Kendall Park Road. Go about 1.5 miles to reach Octagon Picnic Area and another quarter mile to reach The Ledges. From the Octagon Picnic Area, look for the trailhead in the southwestern corner of the playing field behind the shelter.
