Loved the view of the river along the trail. It was such a beautiful color today! Not a great trail to start off on if out of shape, but wasn't too bad.

Nice hike - pretty river views - would definitely go to the right or counter clockwise when doing this trail - less climbing that direction - also can see Cathedral cave on this trail when it is open during the summer months.

Beautiful trail and river scenery.

Trail is clearly marked with blazes and trail itself is very defined. Some good views of the Meramec River and hills. Easy trail.

Camping was nice, we had 2 families. Trails had some nice scenic areas and the kids really enjoyed it, however as others remarked before me the lack of marking made it difficult to be sure you stayed on the correct trail. The cave tour was great!

I couldn't find this trail, but found one across from the amphitheater in the campground that was a 3 mile loop and pretty nice.

Simple trail with a few scenic rock formations. Poorly marked and maintained. Would not have found the trailhead except a park ranger happened to show up.
