Lots of poison oak on the sides of the trail which is concerning when hiking with a 3 year old, but other than that it was fantastic!

The best hiking trail in Weston Bend Park and possibly Missouri! Great views from ridge line overlooking Missouri River. Lots of mature trees and vegetation. Be careful of steep drop off along ridge.

I love this trail! It is tucked into the hills in Parkville on the backside of Riss Lake Damn. I hike the upper trails first then cool down by hiking the nature trail. The waterfall is always a bonus.
