Depending on the time of day and time of year you visit this park is great! Sometimes its busy but usually everyone is spread out through the park. When the creek has water it's nice to wade in but it's usually low or empty. If you go further back into the park the trails get a little more rough and over grown and you can easily get lost your first time through. Watch out for horse poop too.

I took the Yellow Loop to the Silver Loop then the Silver Loop section over the mountain. Going over the mountain was the most difficult part of the trail. Both sides are steep with one side very rocky. I do suggest trekking poles for that. It was a great hike though.

Numerous trails to hike. The trails are well marked. Varied terrain. Enjoyable hike!! One of my favorite locations to go

Very scenic!

First time on this trail. Hugely disappointed that they have a shooting range right beside the trail that was heavily used on the weekday I visited. If I had known this, I would never had wasted my time going there. Unless you get to the far reaches of the trail, you'll hear gunshots, assualt rifles and highway traffic noise on your hike. I get on trails to escape this type of noise pollution so it was a big disappointment.
I noticed a sign that stated the shooting range was closed on Mondays so if you can schedule a hike on that day, that's what I would recommend Too bad they didn't close the shooting range down at least twice a week.

pretty Cool even if your not in shape,

Favorite go to when we want something close. Access to creek and great views of the Ozark Mountains. Some rocky terrain, but manageable.

Nothing basically except a boring hike through a dried up creek bed most of the year. Maybe when there's water... but most of the time nada. AND, the trails not well kept... tons TONS of horse crap everywhere, which combined with the dry creek bed, leads to not so pleasant smell, lots of flies, and having to watch where you step all along the trail.
