Really love this area. Only negative is it’s always so busy and the trail heads need better marking. There are stones that are carved that blend into background only a few trails had signs. My 14/9 year old boys had a great time and enjoyed wading in the water when done. Trails have been maintained with great drainage in place so even after rainy days you can get around

Enjoyed the steps and the spring foliage! Even after lots of rain in area trail was soft but not saturated or too muddy

Pretty trail, but the rock steps were hard for my 70 year old parents.

Easy pretty trail!

Excellent views! Great workout with the elevation gains. Awesome area!

Trail is in perfect condition on 4/25/20. Some if the stone steps are a bit treacherous. Beautiful early morning hike. #SocialDistancing

Beautiful trail with views of the Des Moines river, creek, and ending at Lost Lake. We didn’t hear any on our most recent trip, but in the spring/early summer tons of frogs can be heard calling at lost lake. One of my favorite trails in central Iowa

Fun, easy hike for the family! Some steps but the kids enjoyed it.

Get ready to walk on water cuz it's an iced one out there. plenty of worn down spots causing it hard to get traction but it's doable.

A great second time on the trail. nice views of waterfalls of ice. Many families out and about.

A lot of the park is blocked by fallen trees but they were not difficult to maneuver. Great views for Iowa and a lot of friendly people. Very active park.

02/08/20 One of my most enjoyable hikes so far. At time trail was mostly covered in snow and ice. The many steps can be dangerous so micro spikes may be beneficial to you. Was able to cross all streams but as snow melts may become impassable. Trail offers amazing views with my favorites perhaps being Crows Nest & Council Ring. The elevation gains and scenery make these trails spectacular. Expect to see other people appears to be popular park.

Beautiful steep hike through the Bluffs. They re-done some of the trail and put in a cement lattice. Beautiful fall colors,. Will come and do this hike again.

Tough but fair. Good trail, but more busy than I'm used to.
