The Indain Glade trail at Graham Cave State Park is a .9 mile point to point trail located near Montgomery City, Missouri. The trail is used for hiking. It connects the camping area to the entrance of Graham Cave travelling through semi-rugged Oak woodlands on the way to the cave. Indian Glade Trail leads to the entrance of Graham Cave. It connects the camping area and lower (south) parking lot and intersects with Woodland Way and Graham Cave trails and is near connections to Loutre River Trail. Historically, open oak woodlands dominated the rough terrain along river valleys. Although uniform in appearance, these woodlands can vary considerably depending on bedrock geology (sandstone or limestone), soil type, direction of the slope, and natural disturbances such as fire. As a result, they support many species including a variety of birds. Characteristic woodland birds include the wild turkey, summer tanager and the Kentucky warbler. Fire pink and yellow crownbeard are wildflowers that are part of the very diverse ground cover. Indian Glade Trail has many interesting sandstone and limestone geologic features. Following the eastern section of Indian Glade Trail, there is a spur that leads to the cave roof, where sandstone glades are being restored. Please stay on the trail and back from the cave ledge.

Cool little trail. You can do the whole trail system here looping back to the Cave, which is also neat. Loved it!

First time at this park/on this trail. REALLY enjoyed the interesting features, esp the small waterfall. This is an out-and-back trail, and I connected to Loutre River Trail from the camping check-in area. That TH sign is a little hard to spot, it doesn't look like the other, larger TH signs. Spotted 3 deer.

I gave this trail a 5 because the water was rolling after the 5 inch rain yesterday...but on top of that...all trails were well marked and in good shape despite the wet conditions...I did all the trails except for the Loutre rover trail was pretty much under water

Short woodland hike from Graham Cave back to campground. Several wooden bridges and stairs to bypass easily eroded areas.

Nice trail located in a very nice state park, just off of Interstate 70.

Worth a look at the cave and surrounding rock landscape, but the real beauty of this park is it's solitude. Except for the nearby interstate noise, you wouldn't know there was anyone else in the world, except for weekends!

The woodland trail is a pleasant short hike leading from the campground to the cave. Nice little hike.
