Rockwoods Reservation harbors a rich diversity of plant and animal life as well as springs, caves, and rock formations. Cool, moist, north facing ravines and lush creek bottoms contrast with the nearby arid, rocky ridge tops, and south slopes. The terrain is reminiscent of the Ozark hills and, indeed, many plants and animals found in hill country are also found here. Although located near metropolitan St. Louis, raccoons, opossums, turkeys, deer, fox, songbirds, chipmunks, and snakes are common here

Fun trail! Nice rock formations. Love the pines at the trailhead and the meandering paths through the hills.

This is a good little hike! I like a workout when hiking so this was a good place for that. The woods were really pretty and towards the end we got a little lost but ended up by the natural spring which was cool. Would like to go back in Spring when it's more lively!

Fun, varied trail, crowded due to warm Feb weather, but this trail made me feel like an idiot because I couldn't follow the confusing signs and lost signal.

Recommend taking the trail clockwise to get the uphills out of the way when you are fresh. Since there was snow on the ground there were times it was difficult to see the trail- but was understandable with the weather. Overall a great trail for a run/hike, I plan on going back!

Overall really nice trail. Going clockwise was a good idea. Great views, but lots of trees in the way
