Trails could be better marked. Good trail for hiking or biking.

First real attempt at mountain biking. Probably should have used the beginners trail! But has a great time and didn't crash on the moderate one. Loved it, now I'm hooked.

Great float. Returned and did it with the family. Have canoed the Niangua numerous times with several routes. Always a great float.

It is very common to see Bald Eagles in the area. This trip a bald eagle swooped down with in 20 ft. of us.

This trail is mostly for biking. Majority of it was flat. I even jog half of it. There are some rocky paths and a stream. The smell of the pine trees was lovely.

Nice little hike. Looked like there is a lot of people using it by how busy the parking lot, but never saw that many people. If you walk to the end of the dirt road there is a fishing pond.

Was a good hike overall. Did the hike with my two sons it was challenging enough to enjoy but not to much for them.

It was very fun and I will definitely do it again! The nature was beautiful and we found an old house that was really cool.

wet & muddy, but did the fat tires, good work out, fun and challenging, we enjoyed!

Easy float fun for all.

We live here, and float Moon Valley to Bennett or Moon Valley to Prosperine/Mountain Creek all the time. It's going to be shallow in dryer spells and faster/more attention demanding in wetter spells. I love that there are not a lot of people on the upper part. We floated it 12/4/12- last year- in 77 degree weather, and it was beautiful. It was right after deer season, and we saw several carcasses and one little doe that was dying half in/out of the water at the bottom of a cliff. We could do nothing for her, unfortunately. Saw three bald eagles that day as well. there was not a soul on any stretch, although it was a gloriously beautiful day.

Did this float during flood stage and it was a wild and woolly trip. Had so much fun went back and did it again. Got knocked out of the kayak about three times. Great fun

This is now one of the best mt. bike/trail running parks in Southwest Missouri. There are now 9 miles of trails with something for all skill levels. There is a short connector road to Ritter Springs park which gives you another 3-4 miles of trails. Unfortunately, these can only be used for hiking and running. There is a bathroom at the Ritter trailhead but it is not open in Winter. This is not a good trail system when it is wet. Very muddy!
