Peaceful Ohio woodland scene where moss-covered rock outcrops are painted in warm sunlight.Twinsburg Sandstone Ledges No. 2As glaciers and meltwaters carved through Ohio’s sandstone layers, they often left unique geologic features. Today, as weaker rocks erode from underneath, large blocks of sandstone settle below their formations as lichen and mosses carpet their exposed surfaces, offering park patrons unique and colorful views.

Liberty Park is part of the Summit Metro Parks System and lies near Twinsburg, Ohio in Summit County. The park consists of Sharon Conglomerate which is a sandstone with distinctive quartz pebbles. As recent glacial drainage cut through crevasses, weaker rock layers under the conglomerate eroded and the subsequent void under the conglomerate ledges failed under their own weight. Today, the Ledges trail meanders through the forest floor, hikers pass large moss-covered boulders basking in the sunlight under a canopy of trees making the Twinsburg Ledges an intriguing hike.
