Excellent little hike! Very well maintained.

As previously mentioned, the trails are not marked well. It is easy to go the wrong direction. BUT this trail system is super fun. My son and I are beginner level mountain bikers. We will be back. Be warned,punctures and flats are inevitable, so be extra prepared.

Fun hike with the kids but easy to get on the wrong path. Will be great for Trail running. Hope to use these trails a lot.

Particularly nice trail in the spring and fall when it’s cool out. You walk along the river, and there are several places to access the river bank.

It was great weather for a hike on the red trail but it wasn't marked very clearly. We ended up almost walking the entire trail twice because we ended up turned around. I wish there were maps that were available. Warm enough to see some snakes and what little water that was in the creek was really clear! I'll definitely be back now that I know the way better.

Great trail, love getting to the bottom on hot summer day to feel the cooler air from the cold spring water.

Nice hike! There are three different options on the east side of the trail, are Silver and Yellow. Red was just the right length for a few hour hike and not very difficult! Very beautiful! Can’t wait to try the Yellow trail and maybe even come back to camp!

Paved trail that is great for a casual walk.

great trail however it needs to be marked clearer. we got to a point that wasn't marked and didn't know which way to go. we picked wrong and ended up where we started but that just meant more miles bc we ended up at 4.5 miles! will definitely come back!

paved easy trail to walk or run.

Great easy loop. Must cross the river near the end.

one of my favorite places close to Nixa. Dogs love to splash in the creek after a short hike. I always go left at the bottom of the hill to the trails on that end, as to avoid hiking close to the gun range because my dogs get spooked..

Was a nice place to hike with a decent pay off mid way through the blue path. Would recommend for a 2-3 hour hike

This is great trail to get lost on and people are scarce. If you don't like the challenge of getting lost bring a GPS. The elevation doesn't change by that much and the scenery is actually quite nice. During my hike it rained and made everything green up, however there were lots of spider webs. I believe this would be a great place to visit during Autumn or Winter, especially if you live on the north side of Springfield.

Easy, clean, and peaceful.

Paved trail with much of it in shade. I really enjoyed the Dewey Short Visitor Center by the dam. I parked at Showboat Branson Belle parking lot and walked toward the dam. .8 miles then back. I also went the other direction toward another state park area which is also .8 miles. This trail is in sections with many benches to sit and enjoy the view. I use the restrooms at showboat park area but there are outhouse type restrooms at each of the Missouri state park areas. I love this trail and will do the entire beautiful walk He next time I am in town.

Easy single track trail system, very well maintain and excellent for trail running. Nice fellows out there!

Awesome trail! I did nearly all sections and well marked. Connections can be a little tricky but will this app I had no problems.

Decent trail that was easy to follow and nice scenery. Biggest set back was the numerous ticks and horseflies we encountered. We had sprayed beforehand with tick defense bug spray but still pulled or brushed off over 50 ticks between the two of us

great trail. a little of everything from up hill down hill. very rocky in places

Great place to hike and have kids and dogs swim in the crystal clear water.

Quick out and back walk to look at a waterfall that consists of rocks 1.5 billion years old. That’s old!

Great trail for the whole family!

Cool breeze coming off the lake while we walked on the paved trail. Very easy .

Beautiful and well maintained trail. Access from 6 am to 10 pm. Very enjoyable!

I’m partial to this trail as I live about 6 miles from it. It’s mostly flat and is well kept. Great for jogging, walking or biking.
