Very stroller friendly—paved and wood chipped. No muddy areas even though it had rained recently. I would give it 4 stars for being able to see and hear parking lots and roadway traffic most of the time, but it gets 5 full stars for the AMAZING giant hollow tree that you can go inside. Both kids and adults loved it.

Great trail! One of my favorites since downloading the APP. Follow the white blazes for a shorter hike or follow the yellow blazes for another mile further. There are some hidden water gems located in the bluffs and along the creek beds. Really enjoyed this hike.

A really nice trail that ends up being very peaceful and secluded. It’s well maintained and wide, with variations such as going up some incline to across bridges and a place to go down to the creek and play/throw rocks in. Took our 5 and 14 year old and they enjoyed it - until we got caught in a torrential downpour. Good times!

Awesome trail for our first legit backpacking experience. My daughter Abbey and I did the loop, 3 days, 2 nights. Started out up the West side, some rocky rooty inclines accurately described as moderate, but plenty of water. Found a nice spot to camp first night just before the 9 mile marker. The upper part of the loop, the Courtois Section, was all relatively easy, but no water until Brazil Creek. Knocked down 11 miles day 2 and camped just before the cache. Lucky we left only 7 miles for day 3 because the temps spiked up to upper 80’s. Great trail, well maintained and marked!

good off shoots to get down to the lake but poorly marked trail. lots of ticks on us and our dog but great trail close to the city.

Very muddy, but it did rain the day before. It was still a nice little hike. The waterfalls were so pretty!

The trailhead is not marked. It is 8/10 mile past the end of the pavement on the left side. It is in a parking lot that holds ten cars. We hiked the trail after heavy rain so the creeks were full. Much of the trail runs along the creek so the sound was wonderful. There are two water crossings. On this day the water was about two feet deep but easily managed. If you take the trail clockwise when you get to the arch turn right and cross the creek to continue on the trail. If taking it counter-clockwise, after you cross the creek but before you reach the arch, turn left to continue on the trail. The trail is mostly shaded and well marked. It's not the Rockies but it is one of my favorite easy hikes in Missouri.

We did the North Loop this afternoon - about 4 miles. This trail is just stunning! From Thompson House to views of the Thompson River, there’s so much to see! It’s very muddy right now, so I think I’ll need to wait another week or so before coming back to do the second loop. This is a gem in rural Missouri!

We hiked this and absolutely loved it. The trail is nicely marked and up kept up very well without feeling fake or unnatural. There has been a lot of rain recently, so there was mud/water at times but would only cause an issue if you are in tennis shoes. It didn’t slow us down in our boots one bit. The river was flowing hard and made the hike picturesque. The hiking trail is shared with a bike trail but we didn’t encounter any traffic. Would highly recommend trying this one out for a fun 2 hour/4.5 mile trail.

Our family had a great hike. we weren't quite sure where the trail was once you got by the fork in the river. But we are also fairly new to this hiking thing! We enjoyed the scenery and will go exploring again another time!

Shaded and nice views along the way. Muddy during Memorial Day weekend
