View at top is great. Large section of trail is along a steep drop-off, so consider it kid friendly if your child is over the age of 10. Also, 1.5 miles from the loop, not counting the roughly .6 mile connection from playground. Very manageable trail, with great path.

Fun trail. Didn't start our hike until after noon so it was challenging with the heat, but the views at the top were amazing. We took connector 2 back down to Blackhawk Point Trail (which I do not believe is listed on here). It stormed last night and this morning so the latter part was very, very muddy. We were able to spot several animal tracks, which was cool. Will definitely do this trail again!

First time to Cuivre River State Park was a great one!! We went for the potential wildflowers but not much currently except toothwort and violas. The trail starts behind the playground. Wonderful outlook at the top to enjoy a picnic. Continue along the bluff for plenty of clear views of the Cuivre River valley. This area is accessible by car so it can be pretty crowded. Driving to the top is definitely a must to watch the sunset before the park closes. We will be back!

Nice Trail. Little slick from the morning frost thawing outon the mud. Trails along the Bluff, be careful with pets and younger children
