Hinckley Reservation is best known for its two main features; Hinckley Lake and the Whipps Ledges. At almost 90 acres in size, Hinckley Lake lays at the center of the reservation and is the park's most popular attraction. Its other landmark, Whipps Ledges, rise over 350 feet above the lake and are comparable in size to the Virginia Kendall Ledges of the Cuyahoga Valley National Park.
