One of my favorite areas in central missouri

Great trail that goes through a lot of water. It was a nice hike in a hot summer day with lots of beautiful scenery. But seriously, be prepared to get wet.

Fun trail.

My daughter and I hiked this last weekend...it was a nice little trail down to the creek...Creek was pretty with the cave....we went back out the way we came just because the trail past the creek was hard to find and I remember another reviewer saying it was not marked

Fun trail, but even more fun if you're someone who likes to venture off the trail. Lots of streams with cool bluff lines to explore.

This trail is a little hard to follow once it hits the creek and should really be hiked in the winter/fall due to vegetation growth. A couple of beautiful views and a swimming hike option as well. Beware it isn't marked at all. Have fun.

Great trail, not too overgrown and a perfect distance for beginning hikers. Can be ran, use caution due do rocks and roots. Not highly travelled. There is a creek crossing which is hard to cross with out getting wet, had to use a fallen tree to get across. Trail is well marked and shaded.

Three Creeks Conservation Area is a great place to hike a fairly easy 3-mile interpretive loop or some of the other 8 or so miles of trail. This weekend we hiked 15 miles on the property and saw three caves- Hunter's Cave, Spring Cave, and a third one we just happened upon, but it was large enough to walk into. The trail maps available online and at the site do not include all of the trails, so be sure to take your GPS device in case you get turned around! Beautiful bluffs and several creeks run through the area. The trails cross the creeks multiple times, so do plan to get your feet wet! Primitive camping is allowed and there are many great places to pitch a tent. Most of the trails are moderate. Lots of climbs that take you up and down around 200 feet of elevation multiple times. I've been many times and will continue to go back as each season brings new sights to see!

If you ride or walk the trail down by the cave watch out for the itch weed. It is not pleasant for horses or people. Otherwise, I have enjoyed riding this trail on horseback, and the part meant only for hikers is nice too.

I run here regularly. It's not a out and back trail. And this sights posted distance is also not correct. Linking ALL the trails you can get close to 8 miles out of it. Awesome trail! Something for everyone.
