I have just added the a slope to my cage for Milo my mini lop and he doesn’t seem to know how to get up. Does anyone have advice on how to gently show him that he can go up the slope to get to a huge running place?

It looks a little steep, and your bun looks like a baby, so I wouldn't be sure that he could go up on his own. How long have you had him for?

He’s my second bunny after my first 1 lived 10 years and I’ve had him for a week. The little guy bonded with my very quick and he is 9 weeks

I'd just remove it altogether. He can hop up to the upper level. Ramps just take up space unnecessarily. Curiosity will eventually cause him to hop up there.

I'd also suggest a much larger litter box and removing all that loose bedding over the cage floor. The cage seems setup in a way to make more work then necessary. I'd suggest looking at the cage setup threads on this forum for ideas.

Too steep, no traction. If the second level is too high for him to hop up there on his own, like already mentioned, carpet the ramp, or make step up shelves.
