pretty easy trail but great for a run

2 months ago

it's a nice place. the trail is more of a path that is pretty wide and consists of gravel. I saw some deer on my walk, and there are some nice views of the lake.

Great trail! A very peaceful walk.

a wide gravel road that is well maintained. not much elevation, great for kids or special needs. lower score because it was a bit boring, no views or anything to see

Needs maintenance– spider webs obstructed almost the entire trail and grass was slightly overgrown. The trail itself was an easy walk with wooded scenery. Fun to see the buffalo and elk enclosure. Overall good Friday afternoon for us and the dog– although we got completely covered in ticks.

Aside from a fair amount of litter, the trail is decent. I did cross paths with a young copperhead on one of the offshoot trails, so be mindful of where you step.

Great trail for an easy walk. Go right from the parking lot and it’s 2.5 miles all the way around. Mostly shaded and wide gravel trail

Got covered in ticks, not much to see till you get to the lake, and by then we had been through hundreds of spider webs, and right before then was when we had noticed we were covered in a plethora of tiny ticks. Also very overgrown in some stretches.

on this hike I encountered 2 copperheads on the gravel part of the trail. while walking on the dirt trail the was an extremely large copperhead hatchery that you have to walk through. the dirt trails are not well maintained nor marked.

Trail was not marked at all and I don’t think it’s even operational anymore. Once you get to the lake, there isn’t a path. There are some steep hills and muddy terrain for parts of it.

Lots of butterflies and wildlife. Very slippery and muddy. Path was overgrown in places and we couldn’t even see the lake.

A quick walk around with paths manageable for kids. Sweet views of Lake Jacomo, some natural springs and creeks. Perfect for a quick getaway.

Jacomo has some of the the best trails in the area! Nothing too strenuous but a lot of reward, it’s quite there too, at time you feel as if you have it all to yourself! Great for bird & wildlife watching.

Lake Jacomo has several great trails but I think this is the best because there’s more to this trail than what’s shown here. There’s a main 2 mile gravel loop, plus two dirt trails (each around 2 miles) on either end and those trails have trails that spur off... one could get easily lost if they didn’t know how to navigate through these woods because not much is clearly marked.

Pretty basic and not much scenery unless you go off the path. Maybe good for young kids.

Beautiful, unpaved, at times rugged trails. I've giked many trails in the Kansas City area and this is hands down my favorite.

I've used this trail multiple times but it needs some maintenance for sure. A couple months ago, my dog and I got covered in seed ticks and it was a complete nightmare. Other than that, it's a great trail.

Portions of this trail appear to be damaged by heavy rains earlier this summer. If we did not have this saved on our Garmin we would have been lost.

Lovely trail. Needs more attention to maintenance. Spiderwebs galore and out of control brush in some places.

Beautiful trail. But we were all completely covered in deer/seed ticks

It was a great trail, the only thing is that when we got home we were covered in ticks!!

Fun trail to hike, if you are quiet enough there are plenty of white tail deer to see, smaller trails branch off the loop and can lead you to fun areas.

This a nice trail if you want a quick escape to nature and a short hike. I wish there were better views of the lake but over all good trail.
