Really muddy but somehow the waterfall is dried up. Lots of poison oak and not much to see.

Really beautiful trail, not much wildlife but still beautiful during sunset

Despite a few decent "10%" inclines, this trail is rather enjoyable.... unless it's rained in the previous few days. Despite tree coverage on the entire trail, it can be obnoxiously unhikable when muddy (or pleasant when hot and sunny). Otherwise the switchbacks and views of forest are nice. It's been hit or miss in terms of crowds when I go in the afternoon. The other thing to note is that, while the trail is marked often, sometimes the signage can be a bit confusing. It's pretty straightforward, but just be mindful you don't end up on the horse trail. Dogwood is marked with green tags on the trees.

Great trail for horses. Very rocky in parts and includes several wash/stream crossings, so make sure your horse has trail boots or shoes. Went on a Tuesday and only encountered one other person! This trail is completely shaded and easy to find from the Equestrian Day Use area. Would not recommend using this trail right after a big rainstorm, it would probably be pretty muddy and slick.

BRING A HEADLAMP!!!!! I saw so many people trying to walk in the cave without a headlamp, your cell phone light WILL NOT WORK. please be prepared and don't piggyback on somebody else's headlamp light.

very good trail, easy & fun that you can walk over the stones in the water. Trail maintenance at knob noster is nice. not much overgrowth anywhere.

This was my first time in Swope Park, and I was very surprised by how much I enjoyed the trail. I started by the parking area and went up the mountain biking trail on the left side of the road. I went through the loop clockwise, and only saw two other groups of hikers. The trail was well maintained and easy to follow, for the most part. When I got to the old cabins, I realized I needed to backtrack a bit a take the trail that crossed the road. At one point, I reached a sign that said something like, “Hikers only beyond this point.” I took the route and ended up on a very narrow and weedy trail, so again, I backtracked and stayed on the mountain biking trail to complete the loop.

We like this trail a lot. Good, flat trail that sometimes goes through little towns, sometimes is in an industrial-park-type area, but is mostly in woods and prairies, in beautiful Ozark country. My only warning is to avoid the last leg, which detours through Bolivar via a frontage road and a main drag. On that stretch—about three miles long—you’re just walking on the side of the road, like a hitch hiker. We didn’t feel safe and it’s not at all pretty. Not sure if they’re ever going to fix the trail so this detour is unnecessary, but until they do, I advise you to stop beforehand.

Nice paved trail for walking, jogging, or biking. Pretty busy this last Sunday, but it was a beautiful day and everyone was out to take advantage of it. There are a number of stops at signs or traffic lights, so be careful crossing. Otherwise, a great trail to see neighborhoods and especially the Clydesdale horses along the way.

This trail made for a very nice and relatively easy overnight backpack trip in early April. I camped in one of the campsites about around the 4 mile point. There were 2 very nice springs near where I camped. The trail was not overgrown during the time I went. It was marked very nicely and I believe it is one of the better 8-10 mile loop hikes near the St. Louis area.
