This three- and one-quarter mile trail loops through the forested hillsides of Onondaga Cave State Park and starts in the campground near campsite 17. While walking this trail, you will go through the upland forest into some glades and cross a few wet-weather creeks. Depending on the weather, a number of small waterfalls occur along these creeks. The trail is marked with red flagging and arrows.

This was an enjoyable hike through the Ozark woods. Several wildflowers may be found along the trail and there are a couple of wet weather waterfalls. While the trail is mostly wooded, there are some glades that provide a nice view. A thunderstorm blew in while I was at the half way point, which did create a little excitement. The highlight was a Whitetail Deer next to the trail that made a loud snort and ran off as I did some trail running to avoid the rain and lightening.

Very nice hike for everyone. I would recommend starting by going right instead of left. Trails are very well maintained.

Nice hike but very dense vegetation on some parts of the trail. Very pretty mossy ground cover in certain areas!

Did this one a while ago. Pretty easy trail. Park is nice because in addition to hiking there is a cave to tour.

We love to walk this trail clockwise and the north end of the trail has pretty waterfalls if it has been raining. There is 3 Geocaches on this trail at the time I posted this so that is a bonus.

Easy trail through the Ozark highlands. Follows a creek a short distance, takes one through a savannah and back over to the campground. Nothing spectacular, but did enjoy the wildflowers in bloom when we went.
