just opened app and it looks like a well put together app. can't wait too put it too use. thanku.

Very easy to follow. There is a map at the beginning, showing different paths and their distances. This trail acts as a memorial to retired and fallen Kansas City Police Officers and offers a view of the training academy.

Dog friendly easy little trail. Nice little play and picnic area. Great for quick hikes with little ones.

A quick walk around with paths manageable for kids. Sweet views of Lake Jacomo, some natural springs and creeks. Perfect for a quick getaway.

Perfect for walks and bike rides! Not any big hills for biking. The trail is awesome by the lake. There is also more of a forest feel in some parts than others. There are geocaches in the area and if you time the light just right, Longview is a great place to take pictures!

I truly enjoyed my hike there!!

This seems like a joke. They aren’t even real trails, trashy, homeless camps, and constant visual of the roads....Do t waste your time.

Loved it! Kid friendly. Relatively flat, so not too difficult for my littles and plenty to entertain everyone. We especially liked the playground area.

Lovely and scenic little trail for a short walk. looking forward to hiking here again in the spring/summer when things green up. Many benches along the trail to stop and take in the views.

Nice trail. Was easy enough that my children traveled through it without any worries, although just enough terrain to make it fun. Well spent 1.5 hours out of the house.

This is a fantastic park for kids! There are so many paths and little slopes and rocks to climb. There is even a little bitty waterfall. There is a kids play area to the right of the main entrance and directly above the cave.

Great trail. Quite, and great for birding. Definitely will go back in the spring to see all the trees bud and the stream flow.

Beautiful short little trail. 10/10 would recommend for a nice easy walk

Nice trail, it gets used by quite a bit of people. There's no question of where the trail is. It is not a loop trail so you'll have to either park a vehicle at the start and at the finish, or you'll have too turn around and hike back.

Pretty little waterfall. I went in Jan, a few days after some snow and freezing temps, and although the weather had warmed up, there was still some ice in the water making the experience more unique. There were a few slick and icy parts on the trail as well.

Weaving though the limestone out croppings, almost whimsical with their mossy covering, was my favorite part of this trail. Good opportunity to see wildlife - lots of birds and squirrels, but also saw a turkey and a deer on my hike. I would rate the difficulty moderate as there were a couple moderate inclines, stairs, and some areas with slick rocks. The trail head is best reached by driving past the nature center, the road will end in a parking lot.

This is my favorite off-road biking trail in Eastern Jackson Co. The new 1.5 mile or so addition of trail West of Lee’s Summit road makes this a great out and back cycling trail that will give a little more than 30 miles of riding for a day. You’ll see some wildlife along the way including deer, squirrels, bird varieties, and turkey once in a while. It winds through open prairie, wooded forests, shopping areas, and over and under bridges. It’s a must-do in Independence, MO!

I really enjoyed hiking there. The scenics are different such as waterfalls, rivers, bridges, and much more. I would love to go there next Spring. So beautiful and relaxing! Strongly recommended!!!

Gravel/pebble path. Easy trail. Several split offs of other trails, so you have to watch your gps/map if you're trying to stay on a specific trail. Trails are easily visible, but not marked. Nice nature trail though and very kid friendly. I would go back for just a relaxing walk through the woods. Part of the trail does walk along a road, so that's kind of weird. But all in all, a decent trail.

Enjoy this trail every chance I get, it’s beautiful.

Pretty basic and not much scenery unless you go off the path. Maybe good for young kids.
