Nice trail of decent length, fairly busy, had creek crossing. Would do again when in the area.

Like to get all my dog out here.

Good for dog walks!

Nice loop, take it clockwise.

It's a great workout for a fairly quick hike.

This trail is beautiful. I am visiting from Utah where I am used to all trails going up big mountains. It was nice to have a trail that got my heart rate up but wasn’t a major workout at the same time. The trail is so well-marked it would be hard to get lost. I hope I can come back to this one next time I visit the area.

Great family trail

I loved this hike encountering different areas and terrain. Even made the little climb after the creek crossing with two dogs on leash. Very peaceful.

Simple walk around a prairie.

Gave a 3 because of the uniqueness of the sink holes. Otherwise very ordinary.

The sink holes were fascinating. You were never out of the site of one. Nice loop from Conner's cave, around the hill top back to the cave.

Peaceful trail. Loved the long yellow grass flowing in the wind. Would love to come back in the spring.

Very nice grassy prairie area with some variety of scenery including small pods, numerous trees, shrubs, and habitats. The trail is wide and easy. Very nice for a relaxing stroll. Peaceful are as this trail is a little ways alway from the hustle.

This is a nice, easy-does-it kind of trail. It is by no means moderate and very easy, and would be good for kids. For grown-ups wanting a more challenging hike, not so... For example, the posted time at the trailhead is 2 hours and 45 minutes - I hiked it in 1 hour and 15 minutes.

The trail is well blazed (yellow), clear and well-kept. If you hike it counter-clockwise, most of the trail is downhill, save for the last ¼ mile or so back to the parking lot.

The one down(ish) side to this walk-in-the woods is the piles of doggy poo on the trial. Dog people, please, have fido do his business off-trail, for heaven’s sake!

Favorite trail at RBSP! Challenging enough to get a good workout, but still simple enough to enjoy my time in nature. I love how far from civilization I feel on this trail, very peaceful.

We went in December and it was beautiful! The trail on the west had some rough patches but nothing terribly difficult. No ticks! The trail was easy to follow and follows Gans Creek on the west side. Since the leaves were down there were some great views.

Very easy hike with well-groomed trail. Some pretty wooded sections, but altogether underwhelming scenery. Good for a very short little jaunt and for walking with dogs.

Moderate level was accurate. Saw a lot of different plants and trees. Different terrain though out the hike.

Nice walk through the woods. Did after Gans Creek trail so was anti-climatic.

A good trail that gets some traffic due to the proximity to Columbia. We did the loop on Bikes, and it was a bit rough for an old timer with a non-shock Stumpjumper with on/off road tyres. However, it was a fun outing. Met about 4 people the entire length of the trail. Agree that the new markers might clear up some confusion about the trail, as it was pretty well blazed.

Fun trail with awesome scenery!

Fun, nice scenery. Can be a little slippery on some of the declines which are muddy. Most muddy at the lower elevation. Looks like all the creeks dry up in the winter, looking forward to further exploring with in different seasons.

This was a great trail-- had to cross a creek- could be a little tough keeping your feet dry...

Yay for Park management! They replaced the faded trail markers with bright yellow ones and marked the trail more frequently. Being a novice I've been confused in the past. Trail does have a couple of creek crossings which are easy to navigate, especially in late summer through February. Inclines are moderate. Scenery more. Beautiful in spring and summer but rugged otherwise. I will return here more in the future as it is much more user friendly.

there is way to many people on this trail.. like on every trail in this state park. it wasnt to special. it is well maintained and marked tho.
