Well maintained, easy hike. Beautiful.

i love it!

Run the yellow/pink trails multiple times each week!

It’s a nice trail in the city. Well maintained. Bring in your water.

Good workout, with the steep section going up to Mother Nature's Crack you can get your heart pumping. I agree that the intersections are not marked but once you walk the trail and figure it out it is a no brainer. Start at the Audubon center for a full 4 mile hike.

Well maintained trail, lost it a bit toward the end, but that’s probably more user error.

3+ miles of trails through woods and wetlands. This was a great find!

Very easy walk. Decent overlook of Shoal Creek. The best that Joplin has to offer.

Lost the trail several times. Poorly maintained. There are several trails out here but who knows where they are or where they go

Very poorly maintained. I actually lost the trail a couple of times since it was so overgrown. Not too difficult but very narrow and there are a few slick spots.

Nice easy hike but nothing spectacular. I was the only one on the trail which was nice. Did this trail primarily because I made the trip to see the waterfall so why not hit this trail as well. The path was clear and easy to follow.

It's a pretty trail but not well marked. Pretty scenery and lots of places to take in water views or explore cave openings and rock face. Shaded.

The trail is nice and fairly easy. It is not well marked. There are a few good places along the trail for pictures

love it!

i love this trail. i run/walk here at least once a week, sometimes 4x a week. It's very rocky with a lot of tree covering. This is a nice trail to challenge yourself with.

It was pretty tough but it was nice!

Nice warm-up circuit. Some technical spots with a few features that are in need of slight repair.

Nice mostly shaded trail. Took the kids today and made the loop. A little warm, but beautiful.

A Tulsa gem and a challenging hike. Bring lots of water or a camelpack when it's hot out.

nice Trail, beautiful scenery! But I am not from the area and was unsure where the loop headed back so I ended up hiking about 6 miles instead of 3.4.

Good light trail. Due to the vegetation it’s difficult get a good view from the edge of the ridge, good hike for the fall weather.

Read the whole review! Trail is great. Lots of loops off for mountain bikers. If you do both and start left it’s just over 5 miles. But..... we were out here early on a Sunday and our truck window got broken out and some things were stolen. Broad daylight. Someone must have disturbed the thief bc a wallet and some cash were left and they took our extr ring of keys. If you come out here leave your windows down and nothing in the car, or be ready to tell 911 it’s Tulsa County and wait for a while while they transfer you and then send a deputy. .

Variety of terrain, wear pants (many ticks), neat mushrooms, no lake views, many additional loops, single file pathway, not well traversed, not busy

Fun and mostly easy trail for kids! Paved trail with lots of water access. Very shady so not extremely hot during the summer.

nice little hike not much elevation change decent scenery

This was a nice trail. I enjoyed it very much. As you get into the higher levels, just know that sometimes there are teenagers sitting on the bluffs and “might” be smoking pot. All in all it was perfect for an afternoon walk.

Great views of Shoal Creek all the way through. Much of the trail is shaded. Many people were swimming in the water.

Great urban trail. Would not know your in a city. Challenging but not overwhelming.

Nice easy trail, some pretty views. The park was busy but this trail was not. Worth the drive.

love for a quick close hike with dog and friends ... packed on beautiful days!
