Nice, well used trails with a pond, bridges, and more. urban hiking with history. It's in KC, not Melville..?
Creepy but kozy
It's a great park for families with kids or for taking a stroll, but it's not the place to for for a day of hiking as you are surrounded by residential homes.
This is a nice spot for a lunch break hike. It gives you a chance to stay in the city and not feel like you are in the city. This spot has a surprisingly rich history. A fun little walk but watch your step. It is not in top shape. Many branches and rock to maneuver around.
Neat place but some of it is poorly marked and you can end up in someone's backyard
It is a nice short stroll in the woods, in the city. One positive I find is having such a wooded spot essentially in the middle of Kansas City but unfortunately it's just not that large of an area.
To say there is a waterfall is a bit of a stretch but the area has a lot of neat things to see, is dense with forest, and had plenty of trail options. You don't feel like you're in a city at all.
Nice trails and easy to get through. Not much of a cave, but enjoyed the afternoon walking around.
