It was beautiful, but the trail was not well-maintained and we got lost multiple times. It would be much better if there was more than one trail marker. But, pretty!

beautiful easy trail. we saw lots of birds on this trail compared to bethany falls. even saw a pileated woodpecker.

it's a nice place. the trail is more of a path that is pretty wide and consists of gravel. I saw some deer on my walk, and there are some nice views of the lake.

we had fun on this trail. like others have said it's pretty easy. the rocks on the back side were really cool.

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

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

Trail is located in Hartman Park

Not well marked but we used the map to find the start. Walk pass the playground down the hill, pass the bench and it's on the right

We will definitely be going back during the different seasons to see how it looks

This is a combination of two trails within the park and gives you a nice combined trail.

Really beautiful trail-- looks like it has been recently blazed in orange. Still found it difficult to find the entire loop. Trail shoots up the side of hills at various points and didn't feel very intuitive

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!

Great place for daily dog walk, bike ride, or run. Varied and interesting. Easy access in several areas to change up the route. Loop section is especially nice. Can access the creek in early spring.

Interesting area, good for kids, close to city.

very easy but pretty in the fall. fairly popular on nice days so expect to see quite a few people on the trail.

Any day on a trail is a 5 star day. These trails are fantastic if you like the grit and city trail ambiance, views and city sounds unseen while being on the trail and at times blazing that come with it. If you are looking for a path these may not be for you.

always fun.

just did the small loop. Not marked very well. Met other hikers who did the full loop and second half was marked much better they said. It was pretty but lots of poison ivy.

If you like eating spider webs for breakfast and hiking through no mans land than this is the trail for you! There were so many spider webs that I ate more than I could count, literally had 4 go into my eyes and had spiders on me when i got back to my car

I would really like to find the loop. we followed the trail until it went into the stream bottoms and then started climbing muddy bluffs. never have found the "trail" and I would love to know where the campsite is. I think it would be a great backpacking weekend with a campsite. if u know where it is please let me know. Kent@hubbardservices.com

ruff root covered paths, bridges in disrepair but one good bench passed the cascade.

Love this trail. Very pretty. Easy enough to do while baby-wearing.

Great trail for an easy walk. Go right from the parking lot and it’s 2.5 miles all the way around. Mostly shaded and wide gravel trail

My daughter and I decided to take a hike on a hot Sunday. There is gravel that has recently been laid at the beginning of the trail and it is uncomfortable to walk on to say the least. ( with hiking boots it’d be more comfortable, we had on sneakers)
We were lucky to see lots of butterflies along the way and one even guided us out of the trail.
It’s not very well maintained and a odd place to start. The trailhead started at a apartment complex near the dumpsters.
We didn’t let it deter our hike and enjoyed the semi steep hill down to other trails. We came across deer bones and carried a “web swipes” aka a stick to get through what we called Spider Alley. We loved how the trees naturally grew into and archway above the path so we understand why spiders were so plentiful.
Hope this helps!

I love the ability to train on a technical, challenging trail within minutes of midtown KC. I can double and triple up my loops and feel like I’m off somewhere in the mountains.

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.

Wonderful shady trail

My absolute favorite hiking trail in KC! Stunning scenery, flat stretches, rocky stretches, abandoned buildings, broad flora and fauna. Gorgeous and well maintained. However, definitely keep this app on you. Trail changes are not marked at ALL. Very confusing if you’re sticking to the 4.5. Otherwise, be prepared for more like 8. 

What a peaceful gem in the middle of the inner city. The trail system was fantastic, quiet and beautiful. The shade made the hike tolerable on a sweltering day. Wish we had brought our bikes because the trails would be amazing for mountain biking.
One warning, there is broken glass all over the parking area, make sure all valuables are hidden away. Also, there were hundreds of spider webs across the trail.

The walk was really pretty, but there is no signage and I didn't go out for long or very far because of this.

Love this trail. Easy to walk fast. But beware...full of chiggers this week!!!! apply DEET!!
