This is a trail inside the Parkville nature sanctuary and it is beautiful. There is lots of running water and waterfalls. there's tons of wildlife to see and plenty of places to take a rest. Lots of hills and stairs for challenging hikes really making it such a perfect place to go

Was pleasantly surprised by the beauty of this trail for how close it is to a major urban area (KC). Gorgeous wooded areas, small streams, and gentle breezes. Not very crowded, not challenging, and close to an awesome little town in Parkville. The trail is not well marked but all the routes are short enough I guess it doesn't really matter. Would hike again!
