This trail has a soil surface with numerous exposed tree roots and rocks. Because of the relatively steep grade, sections can be slippery if wet. At the mid-point of the trail, the remnants of an old farmstead can be seen to the right. The trail ends at private property but offers a view of the Missouri River valley. The trip out on the trail can be strenuous because of the grade, while the return trip is, of course, easier. Please be respectful of the private property of park neighbors.

my 6 year old daughter and I hiked this trail this morning. It is a easy trail that measures .9 miles each way. while walking we saw multiple types of butterflies and a snake. The scenery didn't really offer much views due to the woods being so thick and the trail just seems to end in the middle of nowhere. overall it was a decent little hike.

This trail offers a great wide path for hikers only. You'll find various audio descriptions along the way with QR codes or a downloadable app to your smart phone. The trail has 209ft of elevation gain with a spectacular view just slightly beyond the trails end (be careful this part is very narrow).
