Very Cool, i rode this back in late August. It was great it rides like a roller coaster, if you gear it just right you'll use the downhill momentum to shoot ya up next hill. I stuck around and stayed the night in a tent in late August. I rode a couple mountain bike trails alone, and i had a encounter with hornets. I stop up top to view the river, wasn't long after i stop a hornet started hovering in my face, very hot and tired, I swatted at it wrong move couple more showed up, i took off on my bike at least a 1/4 mile down trail, stopped at next scenic overlook. I took helmet off, and here come the dang hornets again. I took off again and got the heck out of there. when I got back to truck kept feeling like something was starting to sting me, I got to looking at my shirt and found 3 stingers embedded in it, and they were almost penetrating my skin making it feel like I was getting stung. it's a great. place bring family. and enjoy one of Missouri state parks

Nicely kept paved trail. Easy. More walking than hiking but there are other trails that connect to this if you are up for a more challenging hike.

Great loop that was kid friendly. Plenty of trails both paved and dirt to mix up the terrain. Good scenery and overlooks of the river.

I almost missed it since the app took me to the campground. Harpst trail near the overlook was great with the kids. Went on to weston brewing co. Afterwards. Great hike-cant wait to go back and do the bigger loop!

This park and campground is great for a weekend getaway. There's enough scenery and nearby activities to keep you busy. The park is well visited and maintained.

It was a wonderful trail with some beautiful views. It was probably the best trail I have hiked on in a while. Also go in the fall if you have a chance, the colors are beautiful.

Very nice trail with very scenic views of the Missouri River. Beautiful hike in the fall with the changing of the leaves. Paved and natural trails.

Took in the Irish Fest in Weston, MO after the hike. Very nice Irish music, food and locally brewed beers in a beautiful setting.

I love this park and it's trails. My wife and I started out on the Bicycle trail, then took the West Ridge Trail, with it's wonderful views of the Missouri River, and ended at the Harpst Trail. After a light lunch, we then hiked the Weston Bluffs trail into Weston and had a cup of tea at a local teahouse. It was a long day of hiking, but well worth it. The paths are well maintained and there's lots of scenery to see. Will definitely go back to hike the other trails in the fall when the leaves have changed.

This was always a Fall tradition to travel up to Weston durring the annual colorfest. I've always enjoyed looking out over the Mo.River from the bluff. I would try to get there in the late afternoon in Oct.Just to watch the sinking Sun ignite The yellow and gold leaves,and watch them glow. Truly one of our area's sceanic hilights,and worth the gas. The hamlet of Westen is always a great and charming sight. I've even called their City Hall one year to get a report on when the trees were peeking in color,they were most helpful.

I actually live next to Weston Bend State park. There are several trails but the one I like most is the Harpst Trail, which consists of 2 loops. Harpst Valley Trail is about a mile loop. The West Ridge is about a 2.5 mile loop.
