This is more of a light walk. Hardly anyone was there which was really nice. It has some cute little bridge crossing and beautiful scenery

Love coming to Walter Woods. It is definitely more of a walk rather than a hike, but it is a pretty walk. Usually nobody else is there when we visit, which is nice. The trail is paved and well maintained, a few small bridges that cross creeks, and a beautiful stone conservation building. Our dogs love coming here, and is a nice alternative to some of the busier trails around Joplin.

I have been going to this park for years. It is not a hike, it is a light walk. Bird watchers love this path. Perfect for taking kids and dogs on. The trail is paved the whole way through. The "lake" is more of a pond and I believe is only used as a fishing education pond, and I think that recreational fishing is not allowed. An adult looking for exercise is going to have to run this trail, loop through several times, or both. It is wheelchair friendly.

Walter Woods trails are well maintained. I was referred to the site while visiting Wildcat Glades Audubon visitor center. It is more of a walk than a hiking trail so I was disappointed from that regard. However it was a pleasant hike through the woods. It would be great for young kids.
