Pretty basic and not much scenery unless you go off the path. Maybe good for young kids.

I've used this trail multiple times but it needs some maintenance for sure. A couple months ago, my dog and I got covered in seed ticks and it was a complete nightmare. Other than that, it's a great trail.

Lovely trail. Needs more attention to maintenance. Spiderwebs galore and out of control brush in some places.

It was a great trail, the only thing is that when we got home we were covered in ticks!!

Fun trail to hike, if you are quiet enough there are plenty of white tail deer to see, smaller trails branch off the loop and can lead you to fun areas.

This a nice trail if you want a quick escape to nature and a short hike. I wish there were better views of the lake but over all good trail.

I've enjoyed this trail twice now. My three year old son and i bring some food for the elk in the conservation area across the street and then hit this trail. It has good lake views from a small bluff outcropping into the lake.

Compacted dirt trail. Great for trail running. Trail does a nice loop and has scenic views of the lake. Tcha-To-Ga means "Mad Buffalo" in Osage Indian language. There is a sign marking the start of the trail. Should be located right across the Elk enclosure. There is a very small 2-3 car parking lot at the trail head.
