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.

Been 15yrs since last here and that was on a MTB. Still as rugged as I remembered. Good stuff though.

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.

Easy to get to, challenging but not too hard, scenic, good elevation changes, well marked.

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.

Great scout trail for hiking.

Love this hilly trail! You feel like you’re deep in nature the only downfall is that the highway is pretty close and it is noisy.

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!

Great trail in the fall, the colors were spectacular

The fall colors were stunning here yesterday!

A nice hike that provides a few easy elevation changes and some nicew terrain. Had no problem following the trail, though they did add one switchback since this map was made. Saw a lot of mountain bikers who were all very friendly and considerate. No horses.

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!
