Pretty decent trail for Eastern Nebraska. It’s definitely not “hard”. A small portion of the trail was maybe moderate difficulty. The rest I would say is easy. Nice view of the river.

Great trail. Amazing views. Unfortunately, the cave is still closed. This is a very challenging trail. I would have done the whole loop, but I guess I took a wrong turn somewhere. One thing to keep in mind when coming here, Nebraska vehicles are $6 to park. Non-Nebraska is $8.

Scenic drivingBridge outGreat!

i started and it was exactly how I expected hilly and beautiful the pawpaw understory was losing leaves and I missed thr season. Hickory nuts acorns and sumac are abundant on this sprawling trail. I went of the beaten path and my God the soil was like a loamy sponge im in love i really hope to one day venture back to the time of Indians and find out the trails they traveled and the lives they lived it was amazing RALPH WALDO EMERSON

Had I not read all the prior reviews about bug spray we would have been in trouble. We sprayed from head to toe and still had some bites as well as ticks on socks and feet. Not a couple, more like 40! Views were beautiful and it was worth the drive. In many areas the path was overgrown so much that it was just tall grass. Views of river and panoramic Nebraska were lovely.

This is about as challenging a hike as you’ll find in Nebraska. There are several steep changes in elevation, especially on Trail 11. Because the trail is mostly hard-packed dirt, I wouldn’t attempt it in rainy or muddy conditions, but otherwise, it makes for a moderately-strenuous hike.

It was a great trail with plenty of views for Nebraska! I would label it as a moderate trail, it was only difficult because of the mud which made it slippery on the inclines. Overall it was great and I would recommend it.

Some great inclines and views! Poorly marked in spots but it all connects eventually so you can’t get lost.

Trailhead 5. Signage was a bit confusing. Trail had difficult steep terrain. A great hike 3hours 21 minutes to hike 5.8 miles. Mud in areas but manageable. Beautiful day 50° 4 middle age ladies completed this hike. One of the hardest hikes we have done in 2020

One of the more difficult tails in Nebraska with the steep inclines. Ain’t no mountain hiking but it’ll get your heart pumping. Made a wrong turn on the trail so I didn’t do the whole trail and Indian Cave was closed. Still very enjoyable!

Good trail. Was rated as difficult but was actually more moderate to me, and I consider myself a novice.

This is an excellent hike, with several trails combined for a loop that features a variety of terrain and difficulty. There are some steep ascents topped off by expansive views of the Missouri River, the valley, and the surrounding wooded hills.

We took tail head 10 because the head by the caves was closed. Starts off very steep and narrow eventually opens up. A few parts where it’s over grown and flooded but it’s just that time of the year. It’s a very fun hike and worth the 8 dollars to get into the park
