Lovely place, mostly shaded. There is a lookout that extends from the trail at the highest point that’s worth a look, too. We’ll be back.

Great trail! Temps were low in the bottom section of the trail; good pick for a hot summer day. Only gripe I had was that the trail ended at the equestrian center and not the visitor center where I started the hike

Great trail for the whole family. Very easy bike ride

My go-to trail for trail running every year in preparation for the Castlewood 8-hour Adventure Race!

Beautiful trail. Gorgeous view when you get to top of bluff overlook of Meramac river valley. Well worth the hike.

Well kept trail. Easy to follow the red markers. Sign clearly states it is over 4 miles at the trailhead. Has a great scenic overlook in the first mile going clockwise. My toddler loved getting to run along the path. Great and easy trail.

fun ride!

A nice hike with some wooded dirt trail and some old dirt road trail. Includes an overlook You can add a walk around the pond which is nice but will probably be much nicer when they finish working on it and fill it back up again.

No one there on a rainy morning.

A favorite relatively easy hike. Surprised to see Buder lake drained! It's deeper than we realized. Hope it will be repaired and back to it's full glory soon!

Such a pretty hike. I haven’t done the whole thing. Just up to the top and back. Overlook is beautiful.

Flat trail that has a lot of offshoots allowing you to add mileage as needed. Will definitely hike this again!

Great trail to introduce the kiddos to bike riding. There were a couple little trails that were “off road” and some pretty views of the river along the way. Fun times had by all.

The signage is poor and the distance of the trail is confusing. All trails says 1.9 miles bit the actual trail says it is 4+ miles.

we were desperate for a challenge so we went clockwise. it was great. it really felt like a workout. then on the easy part we were rewarded with an unusual rock formation and a tiny frozen water fall.

Took the advice listed below and went counter clockwise-- definitely a better option! After the overlook the trail is easy & all downhill, but the climb is so worth it. I'd suggest wearing hiking boots if you have unstable ankles (difficult to see rocks & roots with all the leaf cover).

Love the lookout over the Meramec. Currently Buder Lake is drained for repairs. The trail is fairly easy.

Lovely for a fall stroll!

Lovely for a fall stroll!

The fall colors were stunning here yesterday!

learn the history and hike the trails to see if you can spot any traces of the old community.

learn the history of the park before you hike. fun to see if you can spot any trace of the old town

Flat and not very interesting, but easy walking!

Beautiful overlook!

We got misled by some of the signage. Still, it’s a nice walk through the forest.

Left from the trailhead at the Visitors Center and went clockwiser. Had a heck of a time picking up the trail when we hit the Equestrian Center. Wandered around the parking lot a few times, then finally located it. Very nice hike. Was surprised that we had a nice breeze even at the lower parts of the trail. Would like to see it when it is wet.

The distance was a little off I showed 3.1 miles. It was a good hike i would definitely mark it as moderate. Unfortunately all the creek beds were dry.

Enjoyed a gorgeous day on this trail. The trailhead is just behind the equestrian center and has two parking places adjacently located. The trail is pretty narrow - tough to walk and talk. There are a few confusing areas to locate where the trail picks back up around camping and other equestrian areas. No issues with insects today. Near the end, there were some areas that were pretty overgrown. Enjoyed the moderate elevation climbs but mostly an easy going trail.

moderate challenge with some nice technical areas. not for beginners. hope you like to uphill. there are plenty of ascents. great strength training.

I love Greensfelder. My great-great grandfather Charles Evans once owned several hundred acres that is now part of Greensfelder. It's an excellent place to camp and to hunt for rocks in the creek.
