I have a 3yo & 5yo and they both LOVED it here! It's absolutely gorgeous, well marked, fun, historic, and not too many people, either. Highly recommend!!

Loved it! Took our 3 1/2 year old twins and had a blast! Recommend wearing rain boots if it’s recently rained. Beautiful gem near the city offering beautiful sites at every turn. Highly recommend. Waterfall is on Truman trail.

Very cool trail for kids and adults alike. It’s shady and several creeks to keep it cool.

ruff root covered paths, bridges in disrepair but one good bench passed the cascade.

Nice little place to take the kids or go for a walk. I struggle with finding good places to hike in he Kansas City area so this will do in a pinch. My 2 year old had a great time. One part of the trail goes right up next to a busy street, separated by just a thin layer of trees, so it’s not the most “nature-y” or secluded/remote by any means but still nice. Did find quite a bit of trash which is very disappointing.

Good for kids- some play area. The name is misleading and underwhelming. The cave is tiny. There are neat chimneys along the one mile trail. Wear pants and close toed shoes- lots of poison ivy and sumac. Lots of shade, so lots of mud along the trail.

Great spot for us and the kids. Really cool place to visit and not too hard for young children or stroller.

It was an okay hike for being what like 1-2miles. The caves and the chimneys were nice to look at. The pond was cool as well. Some paths were covered with trees and brushes so it was kind of hard to see the trail but it’s great to bring the kids

Dog friendly easy little trail. Nice little play and picnic area. Great for quick hikes with little ones.

Loved it! Kid friendly. Relatively flat, so not too difficult for my littles and plenty to entertain everyone. We especially liked the playground area.

This is a fantastic park for kids! There are so many paths and little slopes and rocks to climb. There is even a little bitty waterfall. There is a kids play area to the right of the main entrance and directly above the cave.

This was a great place to take my eight year old son to explore. We lingered on all of the dirt trails off of the asphalt trail and loved the ruins of the cabins.

A very easy trail.

Kind of weird you ending up in people's backyards, very small trail, but the chimneys are cool, a cool place to explore if you have kids. knocked it all out in less than 30 min

super easy I would say it's maybe a 30-45 min walk if you take your time. the chimneys are cool but as you go back into the woods you're pretty much in people's backyards which is kind of weird.

Trail is decently maintained. Could use some trash pickup but fairly secluded. Highlight would be the cascades
