The Cricket Trail (D/B/J/C/S/A)
This easy trail was originally developed and named for a Girl Scout Volunteer named “Cricket.” The Cricket Trail begins at Chalet, heading towards Thornapple and Prairie Point. Behind Prairie Point, you will descend a set of steps where the trail leads you to Camp Ledgewood’s Wishing Well. The trail ends at Seiberling Cabin.
The Friendship Trail (D/B/J/C/S/A)
This moderately hard trail has many steps, and is the most direct route to the High Ropes course from Seiberling. The trail begins to the left of Glacier Hill, and will cross over a stream, with Camp Ledgewood’s zip line on your right. Following the trail will take you to our High Ropes course, Low Ropes course, and The Quiet Place, a spot for girls to reflect.
Trail to Lookout Point (D/B/J/C/S/A)
This easy loop trail begins and ends along the road between Prairie Point and Caravan. It is a short and level trail that heads out to Lookout Point. Once you have reached Lookout Point, log seating provides a resting place with views of the ravine and stream below.
The Glacier Loop Trail (B/J/C/S/A)
A physically demanding, but beautiful trail is the Glacier Loop Trail. The Glacier Loop Trail begins and ends at Seiberling cabin. Follow the steps behind Seiberling to the bottom of the hill. Cross the creek to begin your ascent to the Glacier Loop. At the top of the hill, you can follow the loop to the left or the right, and you'll see the beautiful rock formations found on Camp Ledgewood’s property.
The 80th Anniversary Trail (J/C/S/A)
The 80th Anniversary Trail was developed by Esther Shields. The steep and hilly trail begins at the Amphitheater on the roadway to Cotter cabin. It winds through a scenic section of the woods and goes down to the Boston Run Stream (the trail does not cross the stream). From there the trail takes you up the other side of the small ravine and ends at McAlonan cabin.
The Kananen Ridge Trail (C/S/A)
The most physically demanding trail begins at the big oak tree near Shield’s Shelter. When you come to the “T” turn right, and cross the small culvert and follow the trail through several ravines. The trail will end back at the “T” junction.
