Perfect bike trails for family/kids. My kids are 6, 8, 12 and 15 and they all enjoyed it. Its mostly flat but has a couple nice little hills for the kids to enjoy going down. The park is peaceful and 90% of the trail was shaded...at 10am. Nice views of the river and the kids will enjoy the parks and a big, hollow tree they can hide in on the lower loop. Once in the park, drive all the way back to the last parking lot and jump on one of 3 paths to start your journey. To the left of the parking lot is the upper loop. Straight ahead will get you there as well. To the right is the lower loop. There are a couple dead end paths, but not so long that you couldn't enjoy a quick down and back. You cant get lost, but it may take a min to get back on track. This was our fav trail compared to Creve Couer lake or Meramec Greenway/Harry Simspon Park Trails.

Ok trail. All paved and flat. Easy for kids but not super exciting. The scenic overlook was nice - we watched boats go by for a bit.

Least favorite trail I have done in awhile. App directions are wrong- navigate to Minnie Ha Ha park directly and just follow the signs to the trailhead. Part of the trail has no shade. There are some beautiful wildflowers (in late May), and we did see some deer, but mostly the terrain is all the same- flat, not lots to look at, and parts of the trail are very close to the highway so you have traffic sounds. It’s probably a good trail for bike riding or a flat run, but not great for hiking.

Good paved trail and flat. Great for a beginner or a nice walk.

directions through app are wrong. they just drop you off on hwy 30. if you turn onto rahning road and make a right onto old gravois road, you'll see the turn off for the park

This is a lovely paved trail that was lightly trafficked. The views over the river were gorgeous at sunset!

all paved, a couple cut throughs that aren’t. nice place to spend some time. lots of playgrounds, benches, trash cans, and dog bags scattered along the trail as well.
