Watch out for Ticks!!

Great beginners trail with awesome views. Perfect for older kids. Younger children are capable too, however there's bluffside terrain, use caution.

First time on this trail. Interesting variety with the huge vista from the bluff overlooking the river. Nice spots to sit and look down to the river and the pasture beyond. From the wooded area, you cross a park road to reach the scenic overlook. Then, you continue on a narrow trail section along the bluff--watch your footing! I was there in very muddy conditions on the wooded part of the trail--very slippery. It's also an equestrian trail, and it was fun to see two horseback riders.

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.

View at top is great. Large section of trail is along a steep drop-off, so consider it kid friendly if your child is over the age of 10. Also, 1.5 miles from the loop, not counting the roughly .6 mile connection from playground. Very manageable trail, with great path.

Fun trail. Didn't start our hike until after noon so it was challenging with the heat, but the views at the top were amazing. We took connector 2 back down to Blackhawk Point Trail (which I do not believe is listed on here). It stormed last night and this morning so the latter part was very, very muddy. We were able to spot several animal tracks, which was cool. Will definitely do this trail again!

First time to Cuivre River State Park was a great one!! We went for the potential wildflowers but not much currently except toothwort and violas. The trail starts behind the playground. Wonderful outlook at the top to enjoy a picnic. Continue along the bluff for plenty of clear views of the Cuivre River valley. This area is accessible by car so it can be pretty crowded. Driving to the top is definitely a must to watch the sunset before the park closes. We will be back!

Nice Trail. Little slick from the morning frost thawing outon the mud. Trails along the Bluff, be careful with pets and younger children

Very short but very easy walk. Good ego booster for child or elderly hiker
