A great hiking trail. But if you notice it’s closed to bikes, then beware of the mud. We saw a few hikers slip and we had to avoid some down inclines because of muddy trail parts. Beautiful views - my two teenagers also had no problems on the trail.

Start from the parking lot at the Meeting building and go up the Overlook Trail which looks over the river. At the top the trail starts and follows the bluff along the river. There is a fence to keep you from straying too close. It then meanders down the hill to the creek leaving you to walk back up the hill to the parking lot. Very pretty views.

Quick hike for active hikers, a nice stroll for beginners with some decent altitude. We managed it in roughly 35-40mins with two dogs and a couple of short stops. As said already, there is a perimeter fence on the bluffs so the views are restricted. Overall a good trail for a quicky or a decent running workout.

The Hogsback Trail is a 1.16 mile long loop trail that you can access from the Overlook Trail near the meeting center.
The trail is pretty rugged but an easy feat. It has fences along the edge to keep you from getting too close to the edge of the cliffs overlooking the Missouri River. Therefore, views during the summer months aren’t too great here unless you’re willing to risk the $1,000 fine and duck through the fence real quick. I took the trail looking for scenic views so not having any very clear shots, I turned back at the switchback down the hill. The Overlook Trail is where I recommend going in this park if you want to see some scenic views!

Very fun and quick trail. I was back to my car in about 45 min with a few stops along the way. Well kept and I only passed a few people along the way. There’s some nice shade from all of the tree coverage, too.

Loved the scenery. I was glad to see some snakes on the trail! Awesome creatures! Fairly sandy in some areas. Would be great for fishing.

Great trail to take the family. We loved all of it! Gorgeous sand and views.

Went here a few times for the lake and white sands. Beautiful place. Peaceful and serene. Added pics for everyone to see. If you want to see more and other trails I’ve been on follow me at wdp_phoographyinstructor on IG.

I took the Hogsback Trail with my 10 year old son in late October. Gorgeous foliage, didn’t see a soul on the trail. 1.6 mile hike.

I have hiked this trail every year for the past 5 years. We started with the current scouts and continue as a traditional hike. The park is well maintained and has camping including primitive and cabins.

Heavily wooded trail. No markings on the trail itself, but there are markers to indicate where the trails are. The last part of the trail was only accessible with bushwhacking.

It is a fun trail. Short and sweet!

I went on the Hogsback trail today and while the terrain may seem rocky at first it becomes a lot easier for beginner hikers transitioning more towards dirt path. All in all I will be making a return visit.

One of my favorites. I have gone here multiple times and loved it. You can bring your dogs and it's not harsh if you are just beginning. But I would warn everyone to stay out of the marked areas. If your your safety and they don't want you climbing on the rocks. One of my friends got a $250 ticket for going on the restricted areas

One of the first trails that I did when I started hiking. Breathtaking in the fall.

There are some muddy parts along hogsback trail but was a very scenic trail.

A fantastic place for beginner and intermediate bikers alike. The first half of the strip mine course is very technical with the second half being very fast with some great jumps and rock paths. I highly recommend biking here. The hogs back course (reached by taking the path to the outlook) is mostly switch backs with the ending being very up and down hill.

So many great aspects to this park! My daughter, who is five, loved it as well and the trails are beginner level making it easier on her little legs. The walk around the lake is pleasant and a great way to see wildlife and snap some great photos. If you venture around the whole park a bit, you'll find more trails that are great for wild flowers and cliff views. We went on July 4, 2014 and it was hot, so make sure you pack your water as you'll be having so much fun you won't want to leave!

I 've done a minority of the trails and like how you can connect a bunch together to get in some mileage also most of the time it's quieter than say lost valley or Lewis and Clark

One of our favorite parks. Great views never to busy.

A short, but scenic run that loops around the park. Probably more ideal as a hiking trail, but enjoyable.

I really like the loop around the lake for an easy walk. I like the view from the top of the cliff and the subsequent hike. It has great views. The cliff hike is not as easy as the lake loop, but it is still fairly easy. Off the beaten path. Good hike.
