Trail in good shape - more of a road than a trail. Pretty views and access to Coldwater Creek and the Missouri River. Can hear the limestone quarry all along the hike. Additionally, the creek has been recognized for radioactivity. Not sure how safe it is or isn’t, but worth knowing before you get out here. The trail itself is fine. Looks like it is now safe - http://www.coldwatercreekfacts.com/ https://www.mvs.usace.army.mil/Missions/FUSRAP/HISS/

Beautiful property with historical significance. Trail was very muddy due to melted snow and rain.

Trail was soupy and gross—after big snow melt. I’ve been wanting to hike the trail for a while, but came away pretty disappointed.

Snow beautiful!! First time hiking this trail and it has so much to offer. Ruins, river views and an overlook of the river. The snow was firm which made it easy to walk through. When you enter the park there is a guard you have to check in with. Trail runs along the cold water creek and the Missouri River.

Not bad trail walk. A bit muddy, but nothing stopping a hike.

HikingMuddyOff trail

Trail is wide and easy to follow. Takes you through a prairie, along Coldwater Creek and down to the Mississippi. A few ruins and off trail areas to explore. Not the prettiest this time of year.

Very pretty! Lots of old fort ruins to explore. I’d rate it easy as it was mostly flat. It was muddy, so come prepared.
