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.

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.

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

Beautiful trail. Very maintained. Like 60 seconds from the city. Map at trailhead, however seemed to be a lack of trail markers while on the trail.

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.

Well maintained. Fun creek and rock formations to play on for the kids.

Very nice trail with plenty of things to see and plenty of waypoints to sit and relax and enjoy the sounds of nature in the woods.

Absolutely awesome and beautiful trail! We started at the trailhead off of Lee's Summit Rd. and went up to about 23rd St.. Most of trail is wooded and very beautiful, even the sections around the business areas were immaculately manicured and were concrete which was really nice. Also loved that the trail never crossed any roads and was really smooth the entire way and really enjoyable. Loved the emergency call stations placed throughout the trail also. Cool that there are sidewalks which branch off to eating and shopping areas also. Very awesome ride!

A nice little hike nothing spectacular didn’t see too much wildlife but not many other hikers so it was peaceful

Pretty quick easy trail I particularly enjoyed the rock formations there were interesting to walk through.

Fun trail with lots of rock outcroppings. Entire pathway was graveled. One or two places that are not handicap passable. Great place for kids to explore. Only negative was that we went in June and there was no water in the trail.

Good for kids- some play area. The name is misleading and underwhelming. The cave is tiny. There are neat chimneys along the one mile trail. Wear pants and close toed shoes- lots of poison ivy and sumac. Lots of shade, so lots of mud along the trail.

Great spot for us and the kids. Really cool place to visit and not too hard for young children or stroller.

I absolutely love this trail, it's the best one in the whole Independence area. I've grown up biking and hiking this trail my whole life. You can plan a section or you can make a whole day of it and go the distance. If you park at either end of the trail and complete the round trip it's around 30 miles so hydrate and bring snacks. Take you time and enjoy!

The trail itself was beautiful and very remote. Didn't see another person the entire hike. The markers near the end were misleading and the trail was a little overgrown in parts, but so long as you have gps you'll be fine. HOWEVER, if you do this hike wear long pants and bring bug spray and definitely check for ticks afterwards. If you bring a dog, make sure they have tick protection. Throughout the hike I had to pick numerous ticks off me and thank god my dog had a Seresto collar.

It was an okay hike for being what like 1-2miles. The caves and the chimneys were nice to look at. The pond was cool as well. Some paths were covered with trees and brushes so it was kind of hard to see the trail but it’s great to bring the kids

Hiked this yesterday. Had no issue locating the trail head on Blue river. Trail head has a bunch of trash but five steeps onto the trail its all behind you. If you want a trail within the city where you don't run into people this is the one for you. This is my new favorite trail.

Great little outing for the kids... easy trail and the kiddos loved the little waterfall and the cave.

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

I’ve walked these trails over and over again due to their proximity to home. Love the quiet time and taking pictures along the trail.
