Great for a flat run. I live close by so I got this trail often. More than half the trail is paved and the rest is tightly packed, small gravel so nothing difficult about this one. it's usually busy but is wide enough to pass walkers with ease.

I absolutely love this trail to bicycle on. It can get crowded but everyone uses trail etiquette. the lake is beautiful to see at sunset.

Very heavily congested trail. The scenery is lovely and it's a peaceful hike around the lake, but you will constantly be dodging joggers, bikers, strollers, children, and pretty much everyone. I suggest going early morning or late evening, good times for quiet and to watch the sunrise/sunset.

Easy trail but definitely congested. I have caught some great sunsets here along pics of some wildlife; pls be respectful

Great view and easy to trails

Great place to just take a walk or run. There are a lot of other people on the trail at the same time, but surprisingly it is still a very peaceful and quiet.

Love this trail so beautiful everyone is so nice
Only negative is it gets very crowded

This is a cool, windy little trail to utilize if you want to escape the overpopulation of the Creve Coeur Lake Loop. Here you're in and out of woods, constantly skirting the edge of civilization and nature. Lots of switchbacks but little elevation gain makes for a twisting, turning walk that stays interesting. The path is a great option to utilize without a long drive out of the suburbs.

Nice path here, one thing I really like about this park is how nature and manmade structures work together. The overpass of Page Avenue is actually pretty stunning and doesn't detract from the natural beauty of Creve Coeur Lake. There are offshoots of this path where you can get away from the constant hustle & bustle. Trail courtesy doesn't really exist here as you get too many new people on the trail that don't understand walk-right / pass-left. It's not my favorite spot due to the insane amount of traffic, but if I'm looking to get outdoors and want to stay close to home it's a viable option. Bootlegger's Run nearby is a much better choice in my opinion.

Good trail, great for hiking and biking. A little confusing at times, needed more markers along the route.

Great little trail very close to the city. It's very windy to get the distance in because it's in a small park, but it's a lot of fun. There is the opportunity to go down by the lake via stairs, as well.

Well maintained trail built by the local mtb club (GORC). Watch for bikes and step to the side to let them pass if you can. My garmin measured the whole loop around 5.4 miles.

We always see deer when we hike this trail and today, an entire herd of them ran past us. The trail is pleasant and I enjoy it every time. It was very muddy today, which kept the bikers away.

Nice hike with fairly flat terrain, but trail markers are very misleading.

smooth trail, beginners level. clean and flows nicely

Wheelchair & handicap friendly trails. Mostly flat & paved. Can be crowded on weekends & holidays.

Much of the pathways are treeless, and can be very hot late spring thru early fall or very windy and cold during winter.

Weekends are least crowded in winter.

Easy hike above the Creve Cour Lake, A really nice hike. Good length.

paved - lots of bikers and runners. Great for a day outside for an easy walk or a nice run with the dog.

Saturday, July 15, 2017

Great for a hike, trail run or mountain bike trail close to town. Just beware of tight trail and bikers if you are on foot.

not an ideal hiking course. Too much noises and interrupted from bikers.

The positives are there were plentiful deer to view and they did not seem phased by traffic and that parts of the trail were quite pretty. That being said, foot traffic is very heavy, you are surrounded by highways and apartments through much of the course, and you are sharing a very narrow, at times, path with bikers.

The hike itself was easy but not marked well. I actually found the up/down stairs portion the most challenging part of this trail.
