Shady, paved, mostly flat, clean, not crowded on a beautiful Saturday morning.

Nice, easy walk.

Very nice paved walking trail. Servers different paths you can walk down. Nice bathrooms at the park that you can use- right off the path.

Great paved trail, pretty views, lots of bikers and dog walkers around.

It was good with lots of shade and paved and some trash cans. Great for a summer midday hike!

Easy for me. Flat paved trail. Some mild inclines, but nothing even moderate (for me)

unfortunate that there isn't proper signage every where but a nice place to run with minimal sun coverage from the trees.

needs clearer signs but other than it's a great trail for biking running and walking the fog; please note there's no drinking water present

Great flat trail. Very safe. i run it several days a week.

More of a biking/running trail. Trails currently broken up at Jungermann due to construction, will be down for about 12 months. Can easily make it around but need to use side roads or the small walkway down Jungermann. All in all good route.

paved, multi use, flat, semi boring, but gets you outside and moving

it was a great trail with water and ducks awesome pics in fall

Short, but nice escape inside suburbia.

Great little trail, lots of shade for an afternoon ride.

Easy access, level and paved walking surface, plenty of options to fish (although nothing was biting!). It’s a newer park so no tree shade but there are covered pavilions when you want to rest and get out of the sun. Lacks a playground so the kids were disappointed about that. But great for me for walking/running.

First, this isn't a natural lake; it's a man made hole in the ground filled with water.....built in a flood plain to boot. Second, there is no shade because its so new the trees have not grown, and they never will because it's in a natural flood plain that doesn't support the type of flora/fauna they installed here. Third, it's not really a hiking trail, it's a combo fish/boat/campsite. If you want a stroll around a lake in the middle of an industrial park it's ok. Can be beautifully quiet.

Walking/biking trail. Not a true hike. Mainly paved.

Tried hiking this trail... it’s really more like strolling through neighborhoods on a paved, flat trail. If you’re looking for a hiking trail, I’d go somewhere else.

Love this park! I have been there on days of the week and weekends, and neither time has it been crowded. Nice lake with fishing and boating activities (no motorized boats I hear); RV campsites look nice and well kept - and did see one tent camper my last visit. Paved trail goes around the lake and a paved off-shoot goes towards Spencer Rd. Nice dog park and pavilions. I will say though there is not a shady spot anywhere, so if hot come prepared.

Found this place by accident. Became a favorite when I lived near by.

This is a lovely, flat, paved trail along flood berms among lakes, flood plains, and sloughs. The loop also has an option to go further east and increase the mileage to about 4.4 miles in the loop. Bicycles can be rented at the ranger station. Boats, too! There is usually light activity, making it feel safe, yet not overcrowded. Beware of wildlife - occasional snakes (mostly black or garter, but I've seen water moccasins (cotton mouth) and copperheads), and snapping turtle. Other commonly sighted wildlife includes herons, egrets, bullfrogs, box turtles, Canada geese, migrating fowl, deer, etc. There is very little shade along the path. Benches can be found along the path. Water is available at the shelter area in the south-central part of path and via pump at dog park (north-east area). New fountain play area has been activated near shelters.

My wife and I walk this trail whenever we want to take a quick walk since it is close to home. During the summer this is shaded in most parts due to the large trees. this is a paved path. This trail does go through some of the parks in St Peters so you can refill water bottles if needed as long as the parks have not turned of the water for the winter. the parks also have restrooms if you need them.

Pretty unimpressed. Runs parallel to 364/Upper Bottom exit ramp so there is a LOT of road noise. I went in the early afternoon and there was little to no shade. Path is completely paved. Light foot traffic during the week days. Very short; I ended up making a right onto Upper Bottom and making a loop back through Heritage. Will most likely not go back.
