I would give a majority of this trail a 4/5 rating on trail maintenance. It's only when you reach some of the furthest trails from the Rollins st. Entrance where I give it a 2/5 for maintenance. This trail is 75% covered by gravel, not to mention there is numerous erosion control methods at work. Most vegetation is cut back for easy walking. There are 5-7 bridges for stream crossings and there are many Park benches for people to stop and rest along the trail. During the summer a lot of the forest undergrowth reminds me of an old grove forest. The trail is maintained by the University of Missouri School of Natural Resources student council.
