In town for work decided to get out rather than sit in a hotel room all weekend. The trails were good but I have to agree with the other reviews that it’s a little difficult to navigate. Luckily a couple running the trails guided me to the best way back to the parking lot.
Wish I had my mountain bike with me looks like these trails would be fun on two wheels

Not a good trail, it is not mark, it’s dirty!! it’s sad when people does not respect nature. Beer cans and bottles all over.

very nice hike! some areas could be marked better for the beginner but overall a great hike.

Great hike again. Trails are marked and well defined. Lovely wooded setting. Lots of Honeysuckle. The smells were amazing. Saw lots of poisen ivy too. Will definitely be back.

Love this park. Awesome features and a variety of difficulties.

Pretty easy trail to follow until it leaves the woods. Then it becomes overgrown with thorn bushes. The waterfall is also dammed up, but the creek it would flow into was running and provided some nice scenery. If you are okay with skipping the last 1/2 to 1 mile, it rates higher. Unless you planned on seeing a flowing waterfall.

Wow. Trash eveywhere and someone has been doing demonic ceremonies there. I found lots of satanic things on my 4 mile hike. Will not be going back here again.

Great hike. Trail well defined, but not necessarily marked. Follow GPS to stay on track. Really nice area. The Lake City gun range is right there so you can hear lots of gun fire. But if you don't mind that, it's one of the better hikes in the area. We will definitely be back when the weather warms.

Great low impact trail that is very well maintained. The only con are the lack of trail markers which can lead to a lot of unnecessary loops. We had our two and one year olds with us and enjoyed the walk immensely.

Well marked and maintained, trails for all skill levels.

Beautiful Rock formations and forest. Loved running this trail. Went right after rain so it was slippery on those BIG rocks.
POORLY marked trails (if marked at all). Had trouble finding the trail head (sign at parking lot missing). Good thing I had a compass/ cell phone or else I may still be out there!
No joke, bring navigational tools. STUNNING SCENERY, very clean and tidy.

This is a great trail, very rugged for being so close to suburban life. Really enjoyed it and will return!

Best trail in KC area in my opinion. Close to 20 miles of trails. My favorite is the 10/11 loop on the west side. Very little traffic on that side due to terrain.

Just started hiking here. Lots of tight and twisty trails. Good workout

Pretty sweet trails for a newbie like myself. I will definitely be returning to this place.

Not only a great hike but such a nice opportunity to see so many different geographical features all in one place. We saw prairie, woods, rolling hills, streams, small ponds, and a few small bluffs. The foliage is unexpectedly beautiful as well.

Great trails, with lots of rocks and hills. Trail heads were unclear however and many intersecting.

Comfortable trail. Multiple offshoots not always marked well.

One of the highest points in the Kansas City area. Very popular with Boy Scout Troops. Unique outcropping that allows for a chimney in rock wall for fun overnight camping. Lots of unique rock formations. once you get up the first climb its fun for kids to run around and explore. there really is a lot there for such a small area. My scout troop goes camping there once a year. it always keeps us going back.

I really like this trail. Only did a part of it but liked it had some hills for a good workout. There were a lot of bicycles there today. It looks like a great mountain bike path. I prefer hiking. Open areas, picnic tables, and wooded areas. Really nice wide trail with mixture of rocky, bumpy and smooth trails. It won't disappoint.
