This place is awesome, i have grown out of this style of riding, however my 9 yr old likes dirt better than road/paved trails which is my primary style. Stockdales park has some uniqe obstacles and we really enjoyed the mini bmx track at the beginning.
You can take a short hike or an extended one. There are alot of options here. I enjoy walking thi trail! If you go to the right to start, about half way through you will start finding spots that you can walk out at if necessary by following frisbie golf signs ;)!
The trails were awesome. However, they are NOT like what is shown on this app! Mixed use area for mountain bike, hike and disc golf. WAY over 2.8 miles...more like 10-15 miles if you follow the markers. There are some way points marked. My advise, take a picture of the map posted at the trail head so you have a reference that you can use to keep from ending up much further away than you want. If the maps here were good, and trails were marked better, I'd give 5 stars due to the quality of the trail itself.
This is a very nice trail that takes you into the woods. I wouldn't walk or ride the trail if it has rained in the past few days due to the path getting muddy. The hardest part about this trail is it being poorly marked! A lot of guessing on wither you are on the correct trail or not!
I'm a 68 year old fat guy, trying to get back into shape. My son gave me a FitBit for my birthday. I wanted to try the bike/hiking trail, to give my tracker a work out.. I started with trail #1A, which ran into #2A, which led me to #4, into #5, and finally #6. I do not think the trails were marked very well. The forks in the road, were not clearly marked. I took my best guess on taking my chosen paths. The trees and bushes were thick, the flowers purple, and the litter, almost zero. I was passed by two jogging women and met a family group, with dog near the end of my hike. That was it for traffic. No bikers met. By FitBit standards I hiked the equivalent of 50 flights of stairs and did about 4 miles. I had a walking stick and used it a lot going uphill. Lots of bird calls, no animals spotted. Trail was dry, with no puddles. Very pleasant first time experience. 4 out of 5 stars, for lack of trail markers.
Quite an oasis within a large town like Liberty. I enjoyed the trail but admit I was comparing it to another hike I had done earlier in the day at a Missouri State Park, and this trail didn't have the same resources as the larger state park. I was surprised how heavily wooded it was, and although it was a bike trail, I saw no mountain bikers on a beautiful fall day. I took the blue trail, marked as "more difficult" (for the bikers, I believe). The trail is very winding with lots of switchbacks, which became tedious after a while. It was reasonably well-marked for hiking, with additional markings that named sections of the biking trail. My dog stayed fairly close to me on the trail, I think because the woods had fairly dense low vegetation.
Challenging trails, however, you need to be wary of the disc golf activity in some of the western loops of the trails. Great switch-backs and slopes especially for a Midwest trail. I think there are a couple geo-cache sites if you are into that.
