Love coming to this place! Beautiful all year round!

Trail heads and trail could have been better marked. The rocky awnings were pretty and overall, the trail was a fun, moderate hike.

One of my favorites at Ha Ha Tonka, for the variety --cool boulders and climbs, then rushing water when you hike down to the confluence.

I connected to this trail from the Colosseum Trail and did not do the full wooden staircase trail on this trip. I always marvel at the beautiful, clear water and the turquoise blue of the spring at its origin.

Very cool features, esp the Devil's Kitchen cave and Promenade features. I wish the blazing had been better--I wasn't sure I was going the right way when crossing the Post Office Road and moving farther from the parking lot. The trail seemed longer than the posted 1.3 miles (but maybe I was just tired since this was my last trail of the day, after 4 hours!). I cut it short and ended up retracing my steps back to the parking lot. I'll definitely return and do the full loop.

The spring is stunning!!!

You can see the castle on the cliff from this trail. The spring water is really blue and clear. There's a cave that's difficult to get to, off the trail, but well worth it if you can make the very steep climb up and down.

Really cool short trail. Awesome rock formations, tall bluffa, and a small cave. Would definitely do it again.

Great for a short trail run, or a warm up to a longer trail. Clean and free of rocks on the trail make it easy to jog and look around and enjoy the view.

This is one of my favorite trails at Ha Ha Tonka State Park. I hiked here regularly in the early to mid 1990's.
The best features are the Devil's Kitchen cave and the Promenade. I gave it 4 stars, instead of 5, because the hike through the Savannah area is usually kind of boring, aside from a few wildflowers. However, there are occasional deer or fox sightings. Sometimes in Winter or early Spring, you can get a glimpse of a bald eagle soaring overhead.

Very rough and steep terrain. lots of spider webs and the trail gets very narrow at times. Did see 2 white tail deer and some nice views of the hills to the south

Great trail. Even on the holiday weekend there was plenty of parking and the trail was not overly busy. Found you add distance diverting to castle trail etc. Still plenty to see and enjoy.

Loved it!!!

We started at the Spring trail trailhead, walked the steps up to the Dell Rim trail, continued to the Castle, came back to the Spring trail connector then added on the Island trail. There was hardly a section that was not spectacular!

This trail was not high on my priority list of trails to hike at Ha Ha Tonka but I'm sure glad we did. The glade and Missouri cone flowers and the Missouri primrose were just incredible! It's an easy trail about a mile long and you should not miss the beautiful views that this savanna trail affords.

We started at the picnic area near the Natural Bridge, walked over the bridge, through the Devil's Promenade and Kitchen, then returned through the Colosseum and under the Natural Bridge. That was a great route with many great rock formations!
