Beautiful day. Trails in mostly good condition. Spiderwebs, augh!

Awesome trail, I recommend carring something to knock down webs

Hiked the “Rim” trail today. Took the main fire road to the back of the park and then took a freshly blazed trail that look to be “Boulevard”, before connecting with “Dave” and the on to the “Rim”. Lots of spider webs to contend with today. But the trail was good and solid. There was a tree down on “Rim”, but it was passable. (Sorry, no saw or machete to clean it up), took a photo to mark the spot.

Trail is in good condition. Took the side trails of “Scott’s Gunbarrel” and finished on “Rim”.

Recommended trail for a variety of short to long hikes. Easy/Moderate rating, most of trail was well marked. It was a really nice surprise hidden in the area. Good, up down trail, and trail running training. Out of towners, this hiking area is near a MO Conservation shooting range, it’s a good chance you will hear a variety of shooting. We will definitely return.

very pretty trail. at points the proximity to the shooting range was a little unnerving. nice wooded trail, lots of butterflies and toads!

Awesome!! A little messy at the entrance, other than that it was a real good trail.

Trail conditions are icy on Jan 20th .thought I’d give it a go this morning.still a fun outing for just a short run

We just got back from hiking in Colorado and wanted to keep it up here back at home. First time on this trail. So happy it’s so close to our home. Very well kept, marked perfect to decide which way you want to go and loved all the fall leaves. Can’t wait to get back out there with our bikes this time!! Would totally recommend!!

This is my go to trail at Landahl, since I'm still fairly new to mountain biking. I do Family Trail going out and then Will's Wanderer (the actual trail name) coming back. They're not too hard but both definitely have some tricky spots. The trail was changed this year to make the end a little less challenging and to avoid some huge rocks. Dave's Maze is another great trail that connects to these two and is about the same level of difficulty.

In town for work decided to get out rather than sit in a hotel room all weekend. The trails were good but I have to agree with the other reviews that it’s a little difficult to navigate. Luckily a couple running the trails guided me to the best way back to the parking lot. Wish I had my mountain bike with me looks like these trails would be fun on two wheels

Wow. Trash eveywhere and someone has been doing demonic ceremonies there. I found lots of satanic things on my 4 mile hike. Will not be going back here again.

Great hike. Trail well defined, but not necessarily marked. Follow GPS to stay on track. Really nice area. The Lake City gun range is right there so you can hear lots of gun fire. But if you don't mind that, it's one of the better hikes in the area. We will definitely be back when the weather warms.

Great low impact trail that is very well maintained. The only con are the lack of trail markers which can lead to a lot of unnecessary loops. We had our two and one year olds with us and enjoyed the walk immensely.

Beautiful Rock formations and forest. Loved running this trail. Went right after rain so it was slippery on those BIG rocks. POORLY marked trails (if marked at all). Had trouble finding the trail head (sign at parking lot missing). Good thing I had a compass/ cell phone or else I may still be out there! No joke, bring navigational tools. STUNNING SCENERY, very clean and tidy.

This is a great trail, very rugged for being so close to suburban life. Really enjoyed it and will return!
