Great nature trail. Lots of spiderwebs, but that is to be expected on any wooded trail in Missouri during the late summer/early fall. We will definitely go back in the winter/spring, Didn't do all of the trail (didn't do the southern most loop), had to end the hike after 2.4 miles because we felt like the spider stick Shreck and Fiona used, then ate like cotton candy.

Very wooded and mostly shaded, they used a series of vertical rocks over the shallow concentrated flow areas to keep from washing away the trail, I would think that might be somewhat of a challenge for bikers, but great for hikers (and there were maybe 4 of those -so not many). Path would be muddy right after a rain, but we went 24 hours a .5 inch rain and the trail was perfect. Very nice trail, don't let the spiderwebs deter you.
