Dogwood Trail is beautiful, my favorite of the two. We took the little path to the spring; will definitely return for hikes in the Fall, Winter, and Spring.

Nice collection of 3 or 4 different hikes here at Babler, each between 2 and 3 miles in length. Can string them together for longer hikes.

Trails are in great shape other than a few trees have been blown down across the trail, but you can climb over them.

Both trails are easily followed and easy to walk. You can take a break in between the separate trails. We followed the sign to a natural spring on the Dogwood trail. We saw families with toddlers and dogs.

Dogwood Trail - My favorite hike in MO yet. Hilly winding trail that dips thru a beautiful green valley, and is heavily wooded most of the way. Lots of tree canopies. Very quiet and peaceful, only saw two people on the 2 mile loop. I'll be back once the trees and flowers are in full swing!

Lots of hills and great exercise on this trail. Birds, owls and foxes are jewels to look for. Great during spring and fall when you can admire the thick canopies and colors.

Maybe because it was muddy it wasn't as enjoyable but the company was good. The day was overcast. And I guess I like longer trails.

I go here twice a week, and love it! Doing both blue and green trails together is a good workout.

This trail was very pretty and well-maintained. I did only one trail the day I went but I want to go back and explore the others. I went at dusk and going through the valleys and hills during that time of day was so beautiful!

Walked four miles there yesterday. It being a weekday I met only one person. Pretty trails. It was lovely.

The trails are blazed it's and easy to stay oriented IF you have a useable map. There were no maps available yesterday. 10 days ago there were a few photocopied maps that might have been useable if they were in color. All the trails were noted by a solid line, none were dotted or dashed. Using it on the trail was not possible.

There are 4 or 5 trails, not the two noted on this page. None of them are 17.5 miles long. Maybe if you combined all of them it might equal that. The lollipop trail noted by the dashed lines is about 1.5 miles long.

Bring your smart phone or camera and take a picture of the map on the bulletin board. (Which I failed to do.) That might suffice. Otherwise just complete each trail individually so you stay with a single color blaze.

I don't have a gps unit so I don't know if that would work.

Only gave it 3 stars because the lack of maps and rangers peed me off. Apologies, if you are offended. ;-) It is a nice park.

Beautiful. I wish it was a little easier to determine the beginning location of each trail within the park. Also, I had numerous tick bites, so beware.
