This is a shorter hike and the description "a paved trail with steep ups and downs" is accurate. You will have to be prepared to climb some small hills and you will also run into a small set of stairs on the trail. The trail is mostly paved, which is nice. It is only a short distance from the Cape Girardeau Nature Center -- you could park in the parking lot and take a stroller to the trail. Just remember if you use a stroller that there will be lots of hills -- this didn't stop us, but could be an issue for some. Good way to end a Nature Center trip!
Great safe trail to take the kids on.
