Rockwoods Reservation harbors a rich diversity of plant and animal life as well as springs, caves, and rock formations. Cool, moist, north facing ravines and lush creek bottoms contrast with the nearby arid, rocky ridge tops, and south slopes. The terrain is reminiscent of the Ozark hills and, indeed, many plants and animals found in hill country are also found here. Although located near metropolitan St. Louis, raccoons, opossums, turkeys, deer, fox, songbirds, chipmunks, and snakes are common here

This trail has some challenging climbs with tricky footing. I had to slow down on the descents going both directions, mainly due to footing and grade. Starting out, Clockwise gives you a little more of a flat stretch to warm up on. Whereas counter clockwise is balls to the wall almost from the word balls! I tend to use this trail as a connector to rock hollow.
