Toonerville, Missouri Map

Great hiking trails through hills and valleys, lowlands, and bluffs overlooking MO River. I have gone off trail into farmer’s field and hiked the woods between other fields to find more solitude and see more wildlife such as deer and a coyote.

great hike with some awesome views of the river as well and the cliffs. Clark trail is a little over 5 miles

Excellent hike - a bit muddy in spots but well worth it - the river over looks were great

Love the Lewis and Clark trails. Understand, there are two. The Lewis Trail is 5 miles and the Clark trail is 8 miles. I have been running the Lewis trail over winter and have run it both CW and CCW; and I tell you that CCW is much easier than CW. On the CCW direction, you basically have two long, steep climbs that will kick your butt. There are several long gradual descents between them. Running the CW direction you have those multiple long, descents, which are now climbs. CW is easily 60/40 uphill; if not 70/30. But don’t let it scare you, either direction is awesome and will give you a great workout; CW just a little more so.

What a great hike, lots of great river views from the outcroppings on the bluffs. Will definitely do it again!

Favorite trail with lots of big hill climbing and great views of the Missouri River. Crowded on weekends but if you go early you can enjoy some solitude.


Lewis Trail is 8.3 miles. Clark Trail is 5.3 miles. Both have great river views and some good hills. Always a great hike!

Great trail! Challenging, great views. The trail is marked well. Looking forward to hiking again this spring!!

Lewis has a lot less traffic on it than Clark. Very few icy spots. Trail was in good condition and easy to follow. There is one spot where a sign would be helpful - there is a cut to the Katy Trail that is easy to mistake for the trail. Distance is 8.2 miles.

good diverse trail with varied elevation. features fine dust + rocky pathways.

A favorite that’s close by!

Trail markings could be better, but overall it was a nice easy hike.

This is a pretty nice hike and relatively easy, minus a few steep spots. My only complaint is that it's one of the most poorly marked trails I've ever seen. Screen shot a map!

my favorite trail around. a few beautiful overlooks which are easy to get to. a few steep climbs. i havent seen any snakes in the 3 years I have been going there. always well maintained. rocky trail so trail running shoes are beneficial. the 5 mile loop can be walked in about 2 hours. ran in 45 mins to 1 hour.

usually i will only see a couple people along the way. not busy at all.

6 stars

It was a very nice trail with great little stops and side adventures. The look out over the water is my favorite. Only thing I didn't like was the trash. No snake sightings, but we did run into a family of deer!

My favorite local trail. A tough series of switchbacks bring you up and down the river bluffs. However the All Trails mileage is wrong, Lewis is 8.2 miles, and the elevation gain is closer to 1,600ft.

Great trail. All Trails says no dogs allowed, but the sign in the parking lot says dogs must be on leash. I brought my dog and saw several others along the way.
I didn't see any snakes like some other reviewers.
I arrived about 8:15 a.m., and the parking lot was almost full by that time.
I did the full Lewis loop which I enjoyed. You could take the Clark cutoff and shorten the hike by 2-3 miles and still get the same great views of the Missouri River.

Have been hiking this trail weekly for years, my favorite in the area. TRAIL RUNNERS FYI: I've been seeing copperheads just posted up directly on trail lately so be cautious.

Good workout if you take the 8 mile Lewis trail. Great views if the river and lots of elevation. If the streams and rivers had not been dry I would have rated it 5

There were a few intersections that are not marked too well. Glad I had all trails to keep me on track!

Beautiful empty trail with a great view of the Missouri River. Took the Clark Trail cutoff, which made this 5.3 miles. According to the sign, the entire Lewis Trail Loop is 8.3 miles.

Great trail. Took two hours twenty minutes
Clark trail 5,3 miles

Great trail with lots of variety and some good views. Actual distance is 5.3 miles.

A beautiful trail through Midwest wilderness that leads to a picturesque view of the Missouri River. Fun for the family to explore natures beauty.

This is a nice trail, with excellent bluffs overlook, plenty of distance to walk or run, well maintained; yet hilly, rocky, and rugged enough to give the user a sense of wilderness. The downsides are parking can be tricky, it fills up fast, and it does get heavy use; however it is long enough that you don't see a ton of people. The trails are clearly marked, except for one section that forked and takes you off to the Katie trail. Carry a map or use AllTrails.

The Lewis trail is about 3 miles longer than the Clark trail but it is well worth the extra effort. You'll leave the crowd behind and enjoy some solitude plus see some different terrain. Near the west end of where the trail joins the river bluff there is an overlook that would be perfect for you picnic or just a nice rest.

We did the Lewis trail which is 8.2 miles, although at one point the trail cut off and we ended up on the katy trail and had to cut across to get back on track, thankfully we had this map to rely on, but the trail could definitely be better marked. There are several paths that look like the legitimate trail and are not the legit trail, so be careful and record your path on here. There are some beautiful bluff views. Like someone else said previously they could use some trash cans and a compost toilet at least at the trailhead. The Clark part of the trail is moderately trafficked. We started the trail at 1:30 and still found parking but it was rather full. Despite getting lost we still had a great time!

This was my first stop after a 4 hour drive from Memphis. I did 3 hikes in 3 days and this may have been my least favorite of the 3. There were 2 moderately hikes of elevation but fairly short duration. I took in 2 overlooks of the Missouri River. The trail had a bit of traffic, but the weather was nice so people were out. While there are smooth trails in parts, it gets rocky for several steps and I would be hesitant to bring a dog in that area. I got slightly confused staying on the trail when crossing the dried up river bed as the marker on the rock pile has no mention of the Clark Trail only Lewis. However, if you head off to the left you will see a Clark marker about 50 feet or so. The area seemed nice and parking was not an issue but I wouldn't need to hike this trail again. It would have been nicer had the trail had a bar on it so I could have stopped to wet my whistle.
