Good trail perfect for a nice hike with your fur friend!!!! Plus you get a treat at the very end, there’s a cave you can walk in and it’s nice and cool in there, even if you go on a hot day!

This was an amazing and beautiful trail. But it is NOT KID FRIENDLY as listed. It is very rugged and has very steep drop offs inches from the trail. We went with our 3 year old and it was terrifying at times.

I love this trail. It’s a good work out and if you have dogs that like the swim there’s a nice creek for them.

A nice trail with no horses or bikes. It travels along the bottom of a set of bluffs then ascends to the top of the bluffs on the return. Next to the Giant City Nature Trail, it is nicest rail in the park (IMHO).

This was a nice trail. It has some difficult parts in it but it was very scenic and took us about 45 minutes to complete.

Unbelievable views for this short hike. Makes you feel like you are at the Grand Canyon on a smaller scale

Beautiful and doable for those who are out of shape. Trail is rocky, ascends (not the whole time), and could potentially get muddy and slippery. I personally did not find an intrusive amount of bugs.

Fun trail! We took my 5 and 3 year olds and they both loved it. I had to hold my 3 year old’s hand most of the way as it had rained and was slippery in spots, but we all a GREAT time!

Wear bug spray and maybe boots because of the mud. Great views!
