This is an excellent trail, well maintained, and with breathtaking vistas of the Missouri River basin sprinkled along the backside of the route. The trail features shorter five mile loop as well as the longer seven to eight mentioned here. Seriously one of my favorite day hikes - I stop here at least a few times a year.

Also good for trail running in my experience.
