Enjoyable, well used trail that is nicely blazed. The left portion of the loop will take you directly to bluffs overlooking the Meramec River. There are several short side trails from there that give different views of the river along the bluff. The remainder of the trail passes mostly through forest although there are several wet weather streams to cross as well as a couple of glades. The entrance to the Cathedral Cave is toward the beginning of the right portion of the loop but was locked when I passed by.
