a few things. first, google mapping to the trail gets you to a closed gate on weekends. if you then map to the park you can drive to the parking lot of the playground/disc golf course and start behind hole 8 or 9. there are some nice activities for kids but overall the trail is NOT marked well. eventually we made it to where was originally gated off, appeared to be a sort of outdoor classroom through Ferguson/florissant school district. on the way back, we got lost (a few trails intersect) and had to turn back.

This is a great place to take the kiddos to get outdoors. There is a farm area with sheep ect. The trail is easy to follow and very short. There is an easy trail to a pond that is fun. Also a play area for the kids. This wouldn't be an area I seek out for myself for a hike as it isnt very long. If you'd like a longer trek you can hike to the adjoining park Dunagent. Some bridges that are cool but other than that....not much.

easy to moderate trail. beautiful but poorly marked. from parking lot head towards tennis courts and follow disc golf, trail starts there. There are 3 trails that I saw, Northside, woodland, and Notle. Notle ends in the back of a building of somesort. Wear tennis shoes, had some education points for the kiddos. Overall a good trail just needs better markings.

Cute little trail. Don't expect any breathtaking views from this one but it's perfect if you're trying to get away from concrete for an hour or so. Lots of animal scat and tracks. Trail heads are on the edge of Dunegant Park. Kind of difficult to find, but one is right behind the playground and the other is right next to a disc golf hole that's set back into the woods. Trail intersects with itself several times so it's easy to find yourself walking in circles but if you backtrack you can pick your way back up again. My dog and I will definitely be frequenting this trail though since it's walking distance from our place.

The trail is clean and I would say easy. The Little Creek Nature area is worth a trip with little ones. One part of the trail is missing a post mark that caused us to lose our way but it was an easy backtrack and I notified the office to address.

Horrible directions. Couldn't even find it. Not very happy at all.

first of all the directions did not lead me to the right place but i saw the park area on the map so i found it at dungenant park. anyway i really enjoyed this trail. several paths & loops & bridges. i almost didn't go because of bad review but my wife and i really enjoyed it & will probably go back

Kind of dirty. The creek did not look like the picture when we went. More like a runoff ditch. We kept the dogs out of it. It's 5 minutes from my house but we'll go other places.
