we had fun on this trail. like others have said it's pretty easy. the rocks on the back side were really cool.

Beautiful views of the Missouri River from the bluffs. Just enough nature without getting too far off the beaten path. Clearly marked trails, and maps available.

Love this trail. Usually has no traffic and offers several easy-moderate loops.

There were some fun art installations up when we went and the old buildings were fun to explore

This 4.5 mile trail was the perfect 1.5 hour walk. The pretty fall colors were on display. An earlier review had mentioned that it is difficult to keep in the 4.5 mile loop. The key is paying close attention to the green signs for this loop which is called the DeLux Rancho loop. It is constantly bisected by the Woodchuck Run which runs concurrent in some places and crosses it in others. Since this trail is all within cell service it is easy to verify your location on the trail here in the app if you ever get concerned you have gotten off track. This is the perfect little hike surrounded by nature in the middle of the city. The only thing that pulls you out of the calm is that for about 50% of the hike you are within the range to hear traffic on various roads, but that also means 50% is actually noise pollution free!

Nice hike from the park to either town. Good for bikes as well. Great views of the Missouri River. History info posted along the route.

Interesting area, good for kids, close to city.

Great hike - feels like you left the city but you are still close to home!

Not bad for Nebraska. Some decent inclines, decent views of the river, and trail is in good condition. Take bug spray!

Great trail - a little tough for smaller kids. 10 year old did great 7 year old with some solid complaints and 3 year old was losing his mind! But we loved it!

Love this trail. Very pretty. Easy enough to do while baby-wearing.

This was enjoyable. The trail featured beautiful scenery. We saw some wildlife but no bison on this trip.

I love the ability to train on a technical, challenging trail within minutes of midtown KC. I can double and triple up my loops and feel like I’m off somewhere in the mountains.

This is an easy trail for those who want to get into hiking. The scenery is really on the back end. There are other trails nearby like Hickory Grove.

Wonderful shady trail

My absolute favorite hiking trail in KC! Stunning scenery, flat stretches, rocky stretches, abandoned buildings, broad flora and fauna. Gorgeous and well maintained. However, definitely keep this app on you. Trail changes are not marked at ALL. Very confusing if you’re sticking to the 4.5. Otherwise, be prepared for more like 8. 

What a peaceful gem in the middle of the inner city. The trail system was fantastic, quiet and beautiful. The shade made the hike tolerable on a sweltering day. Wish we had brought our bikes because the trails would be amazing for mountain biking.
One warning, there is broken glass all over the parking area, make sure all valuables are hidden away. Also, there were hundreds of spider webs across the trail.

Well maintained trail with typical Missouri scenery.

Seniors - I'm nearly 71, 30 lbs overweight, and not in super condition. I walked this trail in about 30 minutes. I would rate this trail as Easy+ for seniors. The first half of the trail is mostly ascending with a few short, but steep, inclines. Also some steps and boulder/rock dodging in the trail. The sloping down areas have a loose surface, so shoes with good gripping soles are best. It's a pretty walk and has interesting rock formations along the way. Not a boring little walk at all! I wanted to walk about an hour, so walked across the parking lot and did 15 min in and 15 back to get my hour in.

I hiked the easier trail. Well defined but sometimes not well marked. Challenging near the bluffs and easy on the north side. Almost stepped on some adolescent raccoons! Don't take valuables - car break ins are common. My car also bottomed out in the unpaved parking area.

Hiked with my 5YO. It was a nice walk with most of the trail shaded.

My favorite of the 3 loops! Wildflowers are amazing in the spring/early summer!

Not a tone of shade and lots of road noise, however I only did 2 miles of walking so it may get better

Great paved and off road trails! A new favorite!

Nice little place to take the kids or go for a walk. I struggle with finding good places to hike in he Kansas City area so this will do in a pinch. My 2 year old had a great time. One part of the trail goes right up next to a busy street, separated by just a thin layer of trees, so it’s not the most “nature-y” or secluded/remote by any means but still nice. Did find quite a bit of trash which is very disappointing.
