Nice little trail(s). If you just want to do the scenic overlook, that's about a 1 mile loop from the North side of the parking lot. The other trail to the South is good (about 2.4 miles) but does not have a river overlook. These trails are a favorite of fat-tire mountain bikes.

Perfect for my two year old, my dog and I to go on a walk/hike!

Could use better directions. The app map doesn't appear accurate. Otherwise it's a beautiful trail.

There is actually about 5.5 miles of actual trails well maintained for bicycle racing. Lost of other trails just from so much traffic. Good slight elevation changes and nice overlook of the Mighty Mississippi.

Nice hike. The trails are well maintained for bikes, but due to muddy conditions, no bikes on the day we hiked.

It's not flat. Lots of gentle changes in elevation without being too difficult. Trails are well packed so you don't get muddy. There are some good views over the river as well.
