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

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!

Beautiful hike. Love crossing the spring on a set of lily pad rocks.

Fun trail to take your dog on. Pretty scenery, beautiful creek, the lime kiln was impressive.
