Great place to walk, run or bike.

Nice park but not user friendly. Signs are not very clear. But really cool old forts and nice area for dogs . By the river

Great stuff with the kids well maintained easy trails with art!!!

Great place for a short hike with wide easy to follow paths for small kids or those less able but the park also has some great trails back in the woods that are well worth exploring. It's a relatively small park so don't expect endless miles of hiking.

Cool art work but not a hike. Fun for a once and a while walk through.

Cute water fountain and a lot of cool dogs here in the afternoon

Rivers Edge trail took you off the paved trail and provided good river views. Very flat terrain, but nice scenery and a good hike for the family.

Good path, overlooking some nice views. Some part of trail closed.

Just a loop...couldn't find the fort:/

Interesting trail. Had a really nice three mile dog walk.

Lots of different trails from paved to bluff side.

There's the Arch! Looking forward to the development to be completed.

The parks are what makes St. Louis a great place to live.

Tourists and residents alike I suggest getting a Forest Park Guide book or read on the history of the park/area before embarking on park exploration, this will make the experience more enriching.

A nice, flat pavement for a run, walk, or bike ride as short or as long as you’d like! 60 degree weather in January made this perfect today.

A must run! Long trail that’s paved and extremely well maintained throughout the year. Awesome views of Grant’s Farm and the Clydesdales. Bathrooms are closed in the winter. Multiple places where you have to wait for traffic to stop to cross the road. My go to when I need a long run.

Nice trail close to home. Great for a warm December day.

Nice urban trail. Runs from I44 to I55. Paved the entire trail. Lots of cross traffic. Good for biking, walking or running.

Used to be beautiful trails but they are ripping them out to pave them even though there was already 5 miles of paved trail. Took the adventure and beauty away. :(

Good, short trail for my dogs and me, but also challenging. Noisy because of traffic, but very beautiful.

Grant's Trail is a popular paved trail good for running, walking, roller blading, and cycling in a suburban setting. It is not a nature hiking trail per se, though it connects to a few short ones near Blake Snyder Park. The trail is level and miles are marked, so it is useful for distance training. Cyclist should beware of children, dogs, and the clueless during busy times. One can get up close and personal with the world famous Budweiser Clydesdales by Grant's Farm.

Easy 'trail', gravel or paved roads the whole way. The only challenge was the stairs. Wouldn't bother to do again.

This trail used to be good, but when you get inside Cliff Cave Park they totally ruined what made it beautiful to begin with. Paving the trail and taking it completely out of the woods is not cool (not to mention the fact that they're bulldozing down all the trees and the woods to accommodate people who want an "easy" nature experience that isn't even in nature anymore...what the hell??). I would suggest hiking on the wooded loop part of this trail and completely avoiding the Cliff Cave Park portion of it altogether. I'm really sad about how they ruined it...

nice Trail beautiful scenery easy access

Very enjoyable and fun to explore all the special surprises through the park.
