Great fall hike! Well maintained and features a nice section of ridge walk along the bluffs. Very scenic and peaceful!

Love this trail. Usually has no traffic and offers several easy-moderate loops.

This is an excellent trail, well maintained, and with breathtaking vistas of the Missouri River basin sprinkled along the backside of the route. The trail features shorter five mile loop as well as the longer seven to eight mentioned here. Seriously one of my favorite day hikes - I stop here at least a few times a year.

Also good for trail running in my experience.

Be very careful during wet seasons. I hiked this trail this weekend and ended up slipping on a muddy hill and breaking my ankle. The EMTs said that they have to pull someone off the trail once or twice a month. Very beautiful trail other than that.

There were some fun art installations up when we went and the old buildings were fun to explore

We just got back from hiking in Colorado and wanted to keep it up here back at home. First time on this trail. So happy it’s so close to our home. Very well kept, marked perfect to decide which way you want to go and loved all the fall leaves. Can’t wait to get back out there with our bikes this time!! Would totally recommend!!

It great you don't feel like you are in the middle of kc.

beautiful fall variations of color during this time of year.

This 4.5 mile trail was the perfect 1.5 hour walk. The pretty fall colors were on display. An earlier review had mentioned that it is difficult to keep in the 4.5 mile loop. The key is paying close attention to the green signs for this loop which is called the DeLux Rancho loop. It is constantly bisected by the Woodchuck Run which runs concurrent in some places and crosses it in others. Since this trail is all within cell service it is easy to verify your location on the trail here in the app if you ever get concerned you have gotten off track. This is the perfect little hike surrounded by nature in the middle of the city. The only thing that pulls you out of the calm is that for about 50% of the hike you are within the range to hear traffic on various roads, but that also means 50% is actually noise pollution free!

Northern and eastern half best sections. Poor trail markers, but doable.

I've hiked and ran both the Lewis & Clark. It is by far the best trail around! As others have discussed, depending on the time of year it can be muddy and mosquitos can carry you away. The trails can get a little busy on the weekend but it isn't normally very bad. Parking can be an issue.

The Clark can be hiked in around 2-2.5 hours.

Pleasantly surprised. First time at the park. There was plenty of parking at the West Ridge TH and a very clean bathroom. Make sure you have hand sanitizer with you. Went Oct 20 and the foliage was beautiful. Course had enough challenge, but not overwhelming. My only thought is it would have been perfect had trees not obscured the view of the river at the Outlook. But, hey, it’s a state park, right!?

The signage was way to inaccurate. The sign said we were .1 miles away, but it was closer to to 2 miles. I would not hike here again.

Hiked on 10/16/2018, and there were no mosquitos (yeah!!). I have hiked the Clark Trail, and the longer Lewis version. Trees are starting to turn. By 11/1, this will be an incredible hike with beautiful bluff views.

For a special treat, hike about 1 mile to the first bluff for the sunset. Easy hike back with a head lamp.

Not maintained

I did the Lewis Trail on a warm Tuesday in early October. The bluffs, ridges, and valleys were enjoyable. Although there are more bluff views on the overlapping Clark Trail portion, there is one bluffview on the Lewis Trail that surpasses all the bluffviews on the Clark section.

Athough I encountered 20+ hikers on the Clark Trail section, I didn't encounter a single person on the Lewis section of the trails.

A word about mosquitoes: although they were bearable on the Clark Trail they were quite thick on the Lewis Trail. I believe the reason is that on the Lewis Trail there are many more creek bed crossings that can hold some standing water. I hope to return after mosquito season is over. It was a nice hike.

My Alltrails/GPS indicated a hiked distance of 10.4 miles and a traveling time of 3:34.

Easy, lots of mountain bikers but a nice reprieve

horse traffic has done a bit of damage. trail could use some blazes. little trash.

great as always! lotta vegetation creeping up on the paths + fallen trees. also be on guard for bikers hauling butt thru some very thin trails at some points. No ticks at this time but plenty of pesky gnats + flies.

Gorgeous and shaded trail with a spectacular view of river. Pretty easy overall except few hill where you will break a sweat.

Good trail for power walking.

I have known about this Trail since I was a kid and I've hiked several portions of it for most of my life. it has always been torn up from the horse traffic. but it is a large loop and has mostly treed areas.

A fun trail. A few more trail markers would help but still a fun ride thru some tight fast sections.

This is my go to trail at Landahl, since I'm still fairly new to mountain biking. I do Family Trail going out and then Will's Wanderer (the actual trail name) coming back. They're not too hard but both definitely have some tricky spots. The trail was changed this year to make the end a little less challenging and to avoid some huge rocks. Dave's Maze is another great trail that connects to these two and is about the same level of difficulty.

Just another badly marked and cryptic trail that will easily get you lost. Even the trail head maps were off the mark. Got lost after waiting for the local "Trail Nerds" group run that never showed (not even sure they exist anymore) and found myself super lost in the dark. Not to mention LOTS of rocks, somewhat dangerous for runners and the occasional weed smokers on the trail make it for a annoying and disappointing experience.

Great trail, good workout, and well shaded. Would like to see better markings for the trail across intersections and the such. Got off the main trail several times.

Love this trail! Well marked, but I did get confused and ended up on the Hamburg Trail over half way through. I retraced my steps and took a right to follow the electrical lines and BAM! I was back on the trail. Over all, lots of bikers and switchbacks, but that kept me on my toes and interested. The perfect hike for my pup and I! Beautiful scenery, streams, and weather. Bring plenty of food and water for the both of you; you’ll be out there for awhile :)

Tons of spider webs!

We happened to hit this trail the day of a trail race. Everything was super well marked for the runners, and we had a cheering section when we finished!

Views of the Missouri along the bluffs were nice - bet they’d be even prettier in the spring or fall!

very shaded hike with a lot of butterflies and a few decent views. The trail is full of spider webs if you take the Lewis at the fork but still a nice hike
