Cuivre River State Park lends a wilder, Ozarkian flavor to the otherwise predominately agricultural landscape of northern Missouri. Although not far from St. Louis, the park is a nature lovers paradise. A stroll through the park in the spring when many woodland wildflowers are in bloom or in the fall when the prairie grasses tower over your head is an outdoor delight. Spend a few days at the park. Both primitive and modern campsites are available, and Lake Lincoln offers swimming, boating and fishing. The parks two wild areas provide hiking, backpacking, photography and wildlife observation activities. There are also equestrian trails and a campground for overnight stays. Three natural areas -- areas noted for their high-quality ecosystems -- feature native prairie, sinkhole ponds, woodlands and a clear, rock-bottomed stream. Big Sugar Creek is one of the finest undisturbed streams left in northeastern Missouri. Several trails lead through the Lincoln Hills Natural Area and its many unique natural features. Whether for a few hours or a few days, come visit one of the states largest and most rugged parks. You will find Cuivre River State Park to be an Ozarklike island in north Missouris rolling plains.

Very easy short trail - great for first timers

Very nice hike right next to the lake - saw lots of evidence of beavers but no actual beavers! Lake was a little murky especially near the beach area but overall a beautiful hike!

Nice easy hike - a lot of the area looked like it had been burned not sure if it was a controlled burn or a natural burn or maybe something else but it was a pretty good hike overall.

Very pleasant stroll through the woods. The portion of the trail north of Highway KK is more interesting and scenic, and that is the portion with the spring. The trail is in very good shape and is clearly marked.
