Great trail, not too overgrown and a perfect distance for beginning hikers. Can be ran, use caution due do rocks and roots. Not highly travelled. There is a creek crossing which is hard to cross with out getting wet, had to use a fallen tree to get across. Trail is well marked and shaded.

Very moderate trail & beautiful!

If you get "lost" don't worry all trails connect together, if you're willing to hike the eleven miles. Suggest to start early if you want to make the full hike. Some sections are overgrown and other sections are very open and pleasant. The highlight of the whole trail is the natural bridge (more of a natural tunnel)

This section of the trail has been overgrown. There is a part of the trail that has pink slip ties that are marked 'mushroom trail re-route' which makes a circle around the section before you proceed all the rest of the way up the rocky hill. If you continue on you will connect the rest of the way onto the kaintuck trail leading towards the oak section and another section marked with what looks like lungs on an orange sign. Overall a good long trail. Bring the bug spray and wear long hiking pants/shoes! Definitely pack the water and your own markings.

Easy open trail. If you're wanting to go to the natural bridge go passed the turn google maps tells you to take and go down the road a little longer and you will see a sign for the natural bridge 1/2 mile and go down that road and park. The natural bridge is about a 1/2 mile down the trail on the right, and there are orange spray paint marks to lead you right to the natural bridge! A sight to see! It's more of a natural tunnel!

Easy to get lost on this part! Horse poop beware, and parts of it are overgrown. Overall a decent trail but needs better marking on which direction leads where.

Pretty good trails

Beautiful trail. Me and the dog loved it.

The view at the top was great. And the access to the creek at the bottom was fun. I don't think the claim to "shut-ins" is legit. They were a disappointment. Once we got to the shelter, we took the Mudlick Trail back to the lodge.

Amazing view!

Awesome scenic view and castle!

The highlight was the ozark caverns at the end of the trail off to the left of the visitor center. Sucks you couldn't go through it, but while at the opening of the cave we saw a huge blue racer on the other side of the creek. Fun decent trail with bridges and wooden walkways. Watch out for poison oak/sumac!
