The only reason why this is a 4 star trail for me is that it's paved. The LOCATION and SCENERY is amazing. A good pine scent can be found shortly after the trailhead, and there are small chunks of the trail that can be traveled on a dirt path. Once you get to the shutins there's all sorts of spots to climb around on.

I went on a 80 degree Sunday evening and only saw two other people. It does say no swimming, so maybe that keeps a bit of the public out. Cannot wait to come here with friends!

Will definitely do this hike again. The trail is paved until you reach the Cats Paw, which is the lookout, then gravel trails split off each side. We walked around the lookout and down the rock to the St. Francois River rapids. Really cool area. We hung out on the rocks for about an hour.

Great place to hike - was a little muddy in spots but nothing extreme - great place to take pictures

We loved laying on the rocks & playing in the river. Cool spot

Fun to play on the rocks in the river.

Great little hike, take your time!

Great hike - first part is paved - then there are two unpaved trails - make sure you do both. I went down to the river for some pictures - wasn't very hard to find a way down if you don't mind a little rock climbing.

Great little hike. Easy well paved wheelchair friendly trail. Once at the overlook do not forget to do the two unpaved trails leading off the left and right. Beautiful views of the St Francis River rapids.

This is one of my favorite hikes locally. The trail itself is about a two mile loop. It is paved; a slight decline all the way to the river, a slight incline on your way back to the parking lot. It has a nice lookout deck at Cat's Paw (the end of the paved trail) that overlooks the St. Francis River. You can continue to follow the trail after the pavement ends, if you wish. Overall, it is a great place to get outdoors!

My family enjoyed this today. paved walk is super east, stroller/wheelchair friendly. We went down the unpaved trail to the water right at cats paw, with a 1yr old in a carry pack on my back. we took it easy and made it down just fine enjoyed the cool water. saw a copper head on the paved trail headed back to car. gave him his space and we all went on our way. overall enjoyed it.

I really enjoyed this hike. Plenty of wildlife and if you go during the right season you can snack on the blackberries while you walk.

The Tienmann Shut -ins are very scenic. But you have to leave the trail to get up close. Still very scenic. If you stay on the trail it is very ordinary. Overnight camping is allowed at the Rec area south of Turkey Creek day use area.

Hiked it just to do it. ADA accessible is great with a nice overlook platform at the end. Trail back out might be challenging for some in a nonmotorized chair.
