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.

this is the first hike we ever took. 3 kids. good hike. some fun branches/rocks for kids. took pictures at the bluff. highly recommend!

Nice long loop trail through forested hills and valleys and along some scenic bluffs. All saw from the time I left the trail head to the time I returned we're a couple horse back riders. It is marked as a bike trail, but it looks like it is popular with the equestrians, so watch your step.

This trail was not too difficult as I am a novice hiker. However, was a bit overgrown. I enjoyed this trail.

Very pretty trail- some stumps growing up out of the main trail, hard to see.
