Getting weather forecast...
DescriptionNot to be confused with the Ledge county park, this area is officially called Mayville Ledge Beech-Maple Woods State Natural Area.
Completely (as of now) undeveloped but holds potential for bouldering and some small top ropes. The cliff gets higher the more north you go until heights of nearly 80 feet but the bottom of the ledge is on private property...
The rock is much like the adjacent Ledge county park. It can be extremely crumbly in some areas. Very dirty. Also reminds me of High Cliff State Park (which makes sense because its on the same geological formation).
Be careful! This place was originally owned by Mayville Limestone before acquisition by the state. Since then they have not removed the barbed-wire and no trespassing signs... but as long as you use Google Maps you'll have no issues.
Getting ThereGoogle is your friend, but it is close to the intersection of Hwy 33 and 67. The approach is well...interesting. The SNA is actually landlocked except a small 100' swath of land connected to the Hwy 67. There is no parking lot... we parked on the side of the highway. Google Maps on your favorite mobile device helps determine exactly where the access is but you can tell where the woods meet the highway.... slightly before a firesign travelling north.
