    Ten miles of hiking trails lead up & down steep slopes to scenic overlooks, providing spectacular views of Pea's Creek Canyon. Popular overlooks include Inspiration Point, Crow's Nest & Table Rock.

    You need to watch the Des Moines River levels because it fills the lower part of Ledges when it floods.

    State budget cuts have cut the staff and they can't clean up the park grounds like they would like to.
