Lovely trails with scenic views. Both loops are all dirt trails with multiple passes across streams and a few passes across paved roads. Both trails are adequately marked at forks, so there is little room for error or to get lost. Both trails were littered with giant piles of horse poo, as two ladies were riding horses when we were there and clearly not caring about the mess they were leaving behind. Though, this trail has to be one of the CLEANEST I have hiked on yet in the St. Charles area.

The first loop (Cattle Ridge Trail) starts at the trail head and loops around. It is all shaded and very scenic with many water features. You will cross a stream a few times, so be prepared for that, especially if it has rained recently.

"Jack's Loop" forks off along "Cattle Ridge". It is about 75% shaded and 25% sunny/open field, so be prepared for that. You will cross streams a couple of times, some deeper than others, and you will cross a road twice. AllTrails has the INCORRECT trail marked for "Jack's Loop", so if you're following this map be forewarned that the actual trail will take you all the way around the pond and then meet back up again near the trail head. I had a mini moment of panic when I saw how far off course I was compared to the alltrails map, but it eventually met back up again.

Overall, lovely walk, very little traffic during the week day (we passed by 2 hikers, and were passed by 2 horses and 3 mountain bikers on the entire hike), will definitely be back.

This is a great trail! Usually run the 4.1 loop but have also completed the full loop around 5.1 miles. It gives you great variety of woods, fields and some small creek crossings. Well maintained and beautiful park amenities also.

Great trail(s), recently renovated. The All Trails map is very out of date and needs to be updated.
