Good peaceful walk. Lots of animals
to see and enjoy. The waterfall is gorgeous too.

Good trail, great for hiking and biking. A little confusing at times, needed more markers along the route.

This trail no longer exist.

Short little jaunt around the nature center grounds with a view of Lake Springfield. There are convenient on-site bathrooms, plenty of parking, and the nature center itself for those interested. This place is a hidden treasure at the south end of Springfield.

The end result at the falls is beautiful!! The hike to get there is pretty boring, but over all worth it.

Ok trail. Kids liked as it was easy. cave was closed.

Fun trail with the kids. They loved the little cave up the hill and played there for a while.

Fun little trail. Very quiet and peaceful on the way back to the falls.

Longer trail with a steep climb early on making you earn it. What goes up must go down so after the tower you get the decline and after that it levels out. Little bit of everything on this trail.

Nice walk with the family... Keep an eye out for turkeys, and deer...

Very beautiful views and so much to see! We enjoyed reading the placards with the historical and nature information.

Short trail down to the bluffs and the waterfall. Another trail that is several miles down the dirt road and not heavily trafficked. We didn’t scramble down below the waterfall but we did find the spot mentioned in other reviews.

This trail has everything. A view of the spring with its clear turquoise water. Then a steep climb through woods to fire tower. Then great views of cliffs and benches. Then a bit along the river. It really is a trail that covers everyone

Great stuff with the kids well maintained easy trails with art!!!

Great place for a short hike with wide easy to follow paths for small kids or those less able but the park also has some great trails back in the woods that are well worth exploring. It's a relatively small park so don't expect endless miles of hiking.

Cool art work but not a hike. Fun for a once and a while walk through.

This was a beautiful trail with lots of bluffs/overlooks and a great waterfall at the end. If you're really adventurous (and careful) you can go across the top of the waterfall then climb down. It is a big drop off and pretty dangerous, so be cautious. It's a fairly easy trail, we set up camp overnight and had no issues. A little bit difficult to find the trail head but well worth it!

Close to the city. Variety of trails - some fully paved and short, others longer with more varied terrain. Can be very busy on weekends when the weather is nice.

We had a great time on this trail with our kids (five and two years old). The waterfall was roaring after a week's worth of rain. Our eldest loved the rocky bluffs on the east side. We packed a picnic and ate it on top of the dam overlooking the lake and spill way. Kids are ready to go back soon!

Great little trail very close to the city. It's very windy to get the distance in because it's in a small park, but it's a lot of fun. There is the opportunity to go down by the lake via stairs, as well.

Well maintained trail built by the local mtb club (GORC). Watch for bikes and step to the side to let them pass if you can. My garmin measured the whole loop around 5.4 miles.

Lots of different trails from paved to bluff side.

There's the Arch! Looking forward to the development to be completed.

Tourists and residents alike I suggest getting a Forest Park Guide book or read on the history of the park/area before embarking on park exploration, this will make the experience more enriching.

We always see deer when we hike this trail and today, an entire herd of them ran past us. The trail is pleasant and I enjoy it every time. It was very muddy today, which kept the bikers away.

Horrible..the people working there were very very rude.
