With temps in the mid 50s here in November, great day to do the trail. Just me and my dog. Like previous posters mentioned, I’d rate it as moderate as well. Tried out hiking poles for the first time and glad I had them. With all the leaves down it is easy to lose the trail if your not paying attention, and I did lose it for a few minutes about a mile in, but picked it back up quickly with the help of the app. After that, I made sure I looked up regularly to find the blue trail markers.

My wife and I were relatively seasoned backpackers when we married years ago but have not since kids arrived. We dusted off old gear and got the 9 year old out to do this loop and camp at the backcountry campsite. The campsite is well marked, but some weird bushwhacking to get to it. 3 fire rings back there only 20 some feet apart and really no place to pitch a tent. We stayed the night October 13th and it was pretty nice, bugs were mostly done for the year. Great way to test out gear for a future backpack trip, and our 9 year olds first. We are not fans of camping anywhere in Missouri or the Midwest unless it is during fall or early spring. Summers are buggy and brutal. I gave it a 3 consideration that if it had been tracked more and maintained with some regularity it could be easily a 4-5. This trail may be closer to a moderate instead of easy, as it is very rocky with much of the trail in fall line gullies. Downed trees covered the trail and you have to climb or bushwhack to get back on trail.

The trail was mostly rock and loose gravel, kind of like hiking hiking through a dried-up creek bed. There was loose gravel on the hills and I actually slipped and fell once and lost my sunglasses. Was also trying out a new pair of hiking shoes so that didn’t help either, but my hiking poles saved me! Nothing too exciting on this trail. Brief glimpses of the lake but once I realized I lost my sunglasses I had to turn around and go back and find them. Also lots of gnats and spiderwebs in my face! Was not a good day for hiking for me!

Really nice hike. Ended up being 11.0 miles long and found it difficult to stay on the All-Trails defined trail. I would be going along on a well-marked trail and get the notification that I was off-trail and would struggle to find the defined path. Without the app, it would have been easy to get turned around and come out somewhere other than my car at the trailhead. Lots of spider webs and bugs. I found a Paw-Paw tree with ripe fruit(a rare treat) Hiking in 92degree weather is also not recommended. Would make a great fall/winter hike. Happy Trails!

Short, charming loop trail with parking and Trail Center nearby. Fun little collection of cairns near the creek. PLEASE spray your shoes and legs with bug spray - about halfway along we realized our shoes were covered in chiggers.

Hiked to the scenic overlook which was pretty cool. Didn’t do the whole trail, only 2 hours in and back. Trail is in good condition.

Rocky trail in parts that is entirely wooded and passes next to a creek for about a mile before looping back to the trailhead. It is overgrown along the mile or so where it follows the creek. The trail appears to be newly blazed and was fairly easy to follow but I wouldn't recommend it for young children.

Went to the trailhead for the North loop and ended up taking the fork to the right and on the entire loop of the Four Winds trail. The trail is marked well but pay attention once you pass the quarry and go the left for the north loop. If you go to the right you end up on the full 9.1 mile loop of the Four Winds. It’s pretty overgrown in parts but not very difficult or technical. Still, it’s easy to go on the longer loop.

Ran the entire South loop on Saturday. Like Christy, I had to search a bit for the trail again after coming out at the horse stables. However, I got lucky by going South and then found the trail running parallel to the airport going East. Currently, there is much over-growth due to minimal use, but the trail markers on the trees were still visible. Total distance was 11.6 miles b/c of the searching, and b/c the trail is longer than advertised. Great mix of rocks, roots, open spaces, single track and minimal elevation gain. I saw a woodchuck, an armadillo, many deer, and also removed 18 ticks afterwords. I will be back! https://connect.garmin.com/modern/activity/3795121775

Nice shady walk. Saw several deer just off the trail. Some views of the lake. We used Off Deep Woods and only found one tick on us. If you have dogs, I would recommend booties because of the sharp rocks. Happy hiking!

The section of the South loop that I rode was excellent, a moderate skill level ride and very pretty with views of the lake and stream crossings. I was a bit disappointed because I wanted to ride the entire loop, but apparently the trail is under reconstruction. I came out on a gravel road near the horse stables and could not see where to pick up the rest of the loop. After riding around and searching the area extensively I gave up and followed the road back to the trail head. I will certainly go back when all maps are updated and finish the ride as it was a great trail and the portion that I rode was well blazed.

You really couldn’t see much of the Lake for the trees, but there were quite a few deer that ran by. It was rocky in spots, but not too bad. Left with a ridiculous amount of ticks.

I tried to hike this (after walking around a tree down across the trail toward the beginning) but it was horrible. It was washed out and hard to follow where the trail was even at. Maybe it got better but I headed back after a half a mile and hit another (better) trail at the park. Even if it was cleaned up a bit it still seemed more moderate than easy.

Blazes for trail were erratic on dead trees and sticks terrible. Lost the trail for a bit but picked back up at the creek and easy going after

This trail was awful! About 1-1.5 miles in we completely lost the trail. We're both very experienced hikers. We eventually ended up back on it once we got to the creek and from that point on is what easy to follow. The trail was overgrown and crawling with ticks. I had picked about 35 off me by the time we finished.

My husband and I hiked this trail in the fall. It was beautiful but be aware of the horse rides that use the trail as well. Amazing little cemetary, lots of history. Beautiful, easy walking. We love this trail.
