One of our favorite local hikes. We frequent this trail because our kids loves the little “landmarks” along the way. This trail makes it easy to encourage kids to hike.

I enjoyed this in & out of the woods hike. It’s not the paved loop if you feel like a change.

The 1930s pool was very interesting. washout on the downhills, so watch your footing. Definitely a dog trail, so go expecting that. Everyone friendly. Overall, nice trail for a quick walk with lots to see to spark conversations.

the map on here isnt exactly accurate but it will route you around the closed paths. the sculptures are nifty and are throughout the woods

This trail offers pathed access great for dogs and kids alike. This path guides visitors through large sculptures and open fields. For visitors looking for a wooded nature walk, this path offers many nature trails that can take you through the woods. Seems like a safe and upkept area!

Great family hiking. The sculptures are fun to admire. Generally has moderate foot traffic. Bring bug spray.

Interesting sculpture park but the highlight for me was a barred owl perched on a tree that was not frightened in the least and allowed us to take several pictures. The trail is partly paved and a wide dirt trail for the remainder.

Took my kids and they enjoyed the Art Walk trail. It is a gravel trail, easy to navigate. Took about 50 minutes to do the whole thing with 3 and 5 year olds.

A nice hike on the trails with my small, adventurous dogs... Some areas have significant erosion due to all the rain but are still very easy to navigate through and around. We will definitely be back.

Dog and kid friendly. Not for the hard core hiker who prefers serenity over people. Very muddy trails.

Definitely not a hike, but if you're into art and like the outdoors, walking around the sculpture park is such a pleasant way to spend the afternoon. It's one of my favorite places in St. Louis.

Very easy, short walk. Would not consider this a “hike.” Plenty of places to sit or stop to take in the art. Currently only accessible from 270. Be sure to check out the abandoned swimming pool from the 1920s.

Easy and fun! Lots to look at and interact with. Has a nice paved trail but also more of a woodsy trail all with fun sculptures. Very cool.

Great place for a short hike with wide easy to follow paths for small kids or those less able but the park also has some great trails back in the woods that are well worth exploring. It's a relatively small park so don't expect endless miles of hiking.
