Natural woodland trails with some grass (not much), lake access, and walks along the creek bed.

Great trail for me as a beginner to ride. I bet experienced riders enjoy it at a much faster pace. Today was second time i completed five laps of the red outer loop at Sterrett Creek to compare times and get better dealing with certain challenges. The entire park is very pretty with lots of wildlife and a huge variety of plants.

We have enjoyed the Truman Trail for a long time now. Great for walking, hiking and mountain biking.

Very enjoyable hike. Unseasonably warm Saturday in January, so a perfect opportunity to visit this hiking trail. The trail itself is fine, but sparsely marked in places and has many unmarked intersections, so the gps function will come in handy. Plan to come back to finish the trails, but would probably recommend the trail around Stockton Lake over this one.

I only rode the Blue Trail which is about 3.1 miles. Decent place to ride but nothing to write home about. I wouldn't go there to ride this trail, I just happened to be in the area. Plenty of ups and downs to get your heart rate up, but nothing technical at all on this trail. All wooded, so no scenery or views to take I'm either. According to other reviews here, the Yellow Trail (about 12 miles) has more views. Reasonably well marked, but not the best I've ridden.

We use these trails a lot, but finally had time to hike the entire yellow trail (12 miles in 4 hours). Trails are well maintained and are marked well enough. Thank you to those who have put in the work to make these trails possible. Trails are mostly through woods along Truman Lake. There are shorter options: green trail 1.5 miles & blue trail 3.5 miles.

Great trail and sparsely traveled. Word of warning; spray down with bug spray as ticks are horrible in the summer. Some Great Lake views and decent in terms of maintenance. Some areas are a bit confusing, but if you use the app you can get back on track. Did I say wear bug spray? Also use a walking stick to bust the abundant spider webs strewn across the trail. We did the 12 mile hike in about 4.5 hours with a brief lunch stop lakeside.

This is my hometown trail (disclaimer). The MO state races are held here so we can have some swagger! Well maintained ( thanks trail crew). A must ride!

Great Trail for Hiking. Lots of options and ups and downs. We stuck mainly to the blue but ventured onto the yellow to make our hike longer. Very rocky, not for the weak kneed. 4.2 miles in 3.5 hours. Saw red tailed hawks, and a bald eagle.
