This trail is more an out and back trail than a loop. It is made a loop by using part of parking lots and sidewalks throughout Faust Park, which dampers the experience. We went off trail a bit to experience the beautiful wildflowers on the hillside. The trail itself travels through mature woods that are well maintained, there is a Creek and small wood crossing that adds charm to the experience. The STL Parks rate this trail as difficult, however, I agree more with the moderate rating here. It is short, although there are inclines, but still the inclines are on walkways making them easier to handle. I highly recommend taking the trail as an out and back.
