Was an ok hike after you get up the 200 plus steps at the beginning but very short - there is lots of potential here to add more trails but at this point there is only one and it was kind of overgrown in spots

The second half of the trail is a little overgrown, but it provides some good views of the midwest farm land. If you are in good cardiovascular shape, it makes for a fun, quick jog.

It was super fun, lots of animals were out. The trail was very grown up and the end and beginning are very steep. I really enjoyed this trial!!

Great views of the Mississippi valley

Did some field work here as a graduate student. The first part is a steep nearly vertical climb but it's rolling hills once you're on top of the bluffs and among the prairies. You get a great view of the Mississippi flood plain and local farmland.

First part is steep climb, but then is flat. Great Trail!

Stairs definitely make it easier to get to the top, narrow in some places and loose rock on way down..but my 3 year old nephew walked most of it alone with no issues. Beautiful views and path easy to follow. Whole family loved it.

Great hike through the woods with beautiful views from the bluffs! The dogs enjoyed it too!

The trail is actually rated as extreme difficulty. We went up the stairs first, which really gets your heart pumping and blood flowing and also makes you want to turn around, but the views are definitely worth it. Lots of loose rocks on the path down. Other than that it's a great workout!
