Nice long trail that has steep hills and scenic views on the Mississippi River. I went on the part of the trail that takes you to the backpackers camp. Saw a lot of birds and deer. Good place to see Bald Eagles along the river. Please watch your step for snakes during the warm months.

Peaceful, with some beautiful views of the Mississippi river, but definitely would wait a little later in the year to go when you can wear long pants! ticks and mosquitos were terrible

The first 1/3 of the trail was challenging to difficult with many hills and dry creek bed crossings - if one follows the red highlighted trail clockwise. the last part of the trail is actually a blacktop road. It is probably about a half mile. Other routes will avoid the blacktop. There was some vegetation leaning over the trail in some or more areas. long pants is suggested. Trail markers were nonexistent for about the first mile clockwise to the first 't'. Enjoy.

Nice trail with nice scenic overlook of Mississippi if you take the detour to the east.
