Great trail for the area. Rocky in some spots but easy overall. Hiked it with my 2yr old and he enjoyed it.

Came with my dog & there were about 3 or 4 signs that said no pets (aside from service animals) so if you’re wanting to use this trail don’t bring your pets

Getting ready for backpacking trip so hiked this one today w/35lb pack & gear. Trail is well groomed w/minor elevation changes through medium/dense forests. A couple areas where trail is rocky but not too challenging.
Tick/mosquito repellent highly recommended.
If you're looking for a leisurely hike through the forest this one is worth it.

This is a good easy hike with some really fun rock formations. Combine it with the other two trails at Burr Oak for a longer, more enjoyable afternoon of hiking.

My husband and I just hiked this trail today with our three kiddos (3, 2, and 9 months). It reminded us of hiking in NW Arkansas with less elevation change. This is a beautiful trail, well maintained and marked, and diverse terrain for this area. We loved it!

Hello... my son and I are going to be walking this tomorrow for the first time and I was wondering about how long does this take to complete?

Really nice trail with beautiful scenery. You can hear a highway at one point in the hike but it's not a super high traffic highway. Mostly wooded with a short stretch of prairie. Loved the boulders that you can climb up on top of.

We love this trail and have hiked it many times. Today was the latest. There is road noise at one point and can be a struggle for those with walking difficulties. It has an area of rough terrain going through the rocky out croppings.

Easy, but really cool/scenic trail.

Kids loved climbing on rocks and jumping over "ravines". Perfect for novice hikers who get bored easily. Pretty area, but too close to highway noise at some points (but that also means it's easy to get to).
