This trail has just the right combination of moderate difficulty and scenic appeal. There's also a shorter loop using a portion of the Lewis trail that is about 3.3 miles.

Easy and awesome!

Wonderful trail, perfect length for a full afternoon of good exercise. Many uphill battles, but equally many valleys. Well kept and beautiful.

I LOVE THIS TRAIL!! This is a beautiful, well taken care of trail with some of the best views in Missouri. I would definitely recommend!

Trail was a bit confusing after mile marker 8. we must have lost the trail somehow since the last 2.5 miles we walked on a gravel trail that doubled as the Hamburg trail. Except for the last 2.5 miles everything else was great. Very well maintained trail. Great scenery especially from mile 3 to 7.

I enjoyed the trail, but I felt like I was lost. The signs didn't correspond to the map. More signs, please!

I like this trail because you get options and see some pretty sights. I'm excited for warmer weather and pretty vegetation. Also, although the listing says Chesterfield, it is actually between Weldon Springs and Defiance.

Awesome trail. Moderate elevation changes and great views. Can be muddy if it has rained recently. Crowded on weekends. Great on weekdays.
