Very nice all paved trail. Parking is close to playground and trail access. I wish it was longer but still very nice walk. If I come back again I will plan to do the loop at least twice.

when not flooded this is a great flat, looped paved, mostly shady trail. boring views. went in December 2019 and still closed though.

A herd of deer, gaggles of geese, 3 eagles, 2 hornet nests, & 1 train.

I love this trail. So much to see, trains, tugs, barges, herds of deer, groundhogs and today a beautiful Bald Eagle. Blue Herons and so many SeaGulls. Clean restrooms at the JB and cleaner ones at River City Casino. I always pop into the Casino for a free soda or coffee. What’s not to like?

Well maintained paved path. We saw an eagle on our first trip out.

2.5 miles - inner loop winds in the middle and got turned around a couple times!

This trail falls somewhere in between a hike and a park trail. It’s a mix of graveled and dirt trails through the recreation area. Has nice views of the pond and a scenic river overlook. Plenty of people out and about but it never felt crowded. Definitely animal friendly, it’s a great area to let the dogs burn off a little energy.

Great park in general! Everything was well maintained and clean. Did this trail, the new River Bluff Trail to the north (not shown on this app map), and the Cliff Cave Loops trail with my dog for a total of between 6 and 7 miles. Great variety of paved and dirt trails with great views of the river, some cliffs, and the woods.

a little scenic. I really love woodsy dirt path trails. a little more hikey than a walking travel. this has gravel paths and a short stretch of dirt path. it almost looks like it dead ends but its just a u turn onto a lower path

Will have better views of the river once the fall comes and leaves drop. Better for biking.

Beautiful little trail, great for taking little kids with a nice playground too.

Nice Saturday morning walk. There were lots of families on the walk. There are nice overlooks of the river if you follow a few of the offshoots.

I did this trail last night with my kids and my mother-in-law, IN THE RAIN, and it was still lovely :-) I really enjoyed it! It's so pretty. It's just a nice easy/short, mile loop. We were especially delighted to find hidden fairy homes and sentimental trinkets hanging from trees all along the path. 10/10

Good hike with my buddy, Meat, who recently lost 100 lbs. Energy level was good and he climbed hills like a champ. Way to go!

Still flooded about 1/2 mile into it. Flood waters ARE receding.

Great park for many different activity levels! Easy wide and paved trails, great for families with little ones and for bikers. Also many different trails that take you all over the woods in the park. Drinking fountains and large pavilion area by the river to get out of the sun, all by the parking lot and trail entrances. Great place to spend the afternoon outdoors!

Easy approximately 1 mile loop with minor elevation in a very pleasant park setting. Loop can be shortened. Restrooms are available.

A great series of paved and dirt trails to walk with lots of birds and shade (on the dirt trails)... It stayed quite cool in the shade, and the dogs loved it. We will definitely go back.

The trail maker is no longer there and can be hard to find. From the bottom parking lot, follow the Greenway trail marker .6 up the hill until you see a storm drain. There's a rocky hill that doesn't look like much of a trail, but about 30 steps up, the loop will be clear. The entrance is about .02 miles from the cave bridge. If you get to the bridge that crosses Cave Cliff road, you passed it.

This was a good trail!

Was worried I wouldn't find the unpaved portion, but if you stay on the paved path, you ultimately hit the trailhead. The path beyond the cave didn't seem real clear, but alas... lots of opportunity to get lost on the various loops. Can't wait to come back.

Took the trail entrance by the drain (past the cave, before the bridge from the lower parking lot). Got delightfully lost on the “inner loop.” Looking forward to giving it another try.

most of this trail was flooded so i didnt get the full experience. did the small .4 loop and that was nice. looking forward to coming back when the water goes down and the trail is clear.

I was pleasantly surprised that this trail gave me a bigger workout than what I initially expected. Great views of the Mississippi River. Giving a four stars because some areas were kind of overgrown and not pretty like the rest of the trail
