Easy paved trail.

Easy access, level and paved walking surface, plenty of options to fish (although nothing was biting!). It’s a newer park so no tree shade but there are covered pavilions when you want to rest and get out of the sun. Lacks a playground so the kids were disappointed about that. But great for me for walking/running.

First, this isn't a natural lake; it's a man made hole in the ground filled with water.....built in a flood plain to boot. Second, there is no shade because its so new the trees have not grown, and they never will because it's in a natural flood plain that doesn't support the type of flora/fauna they installed here. Third, it's not really a hiking trail, it's a combo fish/boat/campsite. If you want a stroll around a lake in the middle of an industrial park it's ok. Can be beautifully quiet.

Love this park! I have been there on days of the week and weekends, and neither time has it been crowded. Nice lake with fishing and boating activities (no motorized boats I hear); RV campsites look nice and well kept - and did see one tent camper my last visit. Paved trail goes around the lake and a paved off-shoot goes towards Spencer Rd. Nice dog park and pavilions. I will say though there is not a shady spot anywhere, so if hot come prepared.

This is a lovely, flat, paved trail along flood berms among lakes, flood plains, and sloughs. The loop also has an option to go further east and increase the mileage to about 4.4 miles in the loop. Bicycles can be rented at the ranger station. Boats, too! There is usually light activity, making it feel safe, yet not overcrowded. Beware of wildlife - occasional snakes (mostly black or garter, but I've seen water moccasins (cotton mouth) and copperheads), and snapping turtle. Other commonly sighted wildlife includes herons, egrets, bullfrogs, box turtles, Canada geese, migrating fowl, deer, etc. There is very little shade along the path. Benches can be found along the path. Water is available at the shelter area in the south-central part of path and via pump at dog park (north-east area). New fountain play area has been activated near shelters.

I live in the St Peters Missouri area. There is a city trail that runs behind my home, which connects to Laurel park to the south and Lakeside 370 Park to the north. It is a 16-19 mile trip to the northern park.
From Spencer Rd, there is a trail on top of a levee that continues to the 5.5 mile loop at lakeside. The entire path is all asphalt or concrete.
