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

Nice inclines, some good low rock formations and awesome moss. A pretty stream from a spring at the bottom paved portion.

We are new to the hiking world and visiting from MN. This was the 2nd trail we did in MO and it was a lot of fun. Definitely more of a challenge for us and the dogs. Not that we were completely worn out after, it just felt like a nice hike. If we are back in MO next year this will be a trail we revisit!

Adequate hike. The distance was good, and it presented very little risk of getting lost. For our more athletic participants in the group, it didn't have enough length or hill challenges. For our new hikers, it was considered a favorite that gave just a minor challenge.

Good hike. Some moderately rough terrain in one area. Quiet and peaceful.

I went left off the trail head and there some steep hills in the back. Definitely want to come back later in the season to see how the trees and foliage blooms. Not many people on the trail.
