Beautiful 60 degree day, very sunny and windy. Trail was in excellent condition. Awesome hike with lots of elevation change and some cool creek/drainage crossings.

Awesome trail. I had a late start so I did the loop clockwise and hung a hammock at the backpack campground which was a good low laying spot in between hills next to a creek bed. Finished the loop the next day which had some really cool features and scenery.

Based on prior reviews, I was expecting a challenge with a poorly marked trail, but I found just the opposite - perhaps it was recently remarked? Watch for small brown “TRAIL” signs and square white blazes on trees and rocks. A great hike on a fall day.

We tried to do the Al Foster trail starting with the directions at Castlewood Park. You have to take the river scene trail a ways to get there. This is definitely mountain biking - not road biking. Pretty trail but would not call this “easy” for kids to bike

Wonderful photogenic spot with great reflections of red mill in the water.

Nice overlooks. Crowed but nice trail. My boys loved the nearby train and the water

The signage was way to inaccurate. The sign said we were .1 miles away, but it was closer to to 2 miles. I would not hike here again.

Would have given it a 5 star but poorly marked. Markers are only every mile. A simple blaze system would eliminate this. Started at the West end. The first half mile I was off trail and had to back track and then drove to Lone Elk lot to restart. Hiking rated difficult but only moderate at best. Completed the entire 13 miles plus. Will retry. Positives: very few on trail, peaceful, hills.

i love it!

I ride this a couple times a week, it’s roughly 3.4 miles, not 2.8. There are some limbs & spots that could used cleaned up, but alternate routes are easy to access. The first couple times I rode I had wished things were better marked, but all in all it’s a good trail for a quick conditioning ride after work.

Nice easy trail paved and gravel through the woods. A couple of overlooks to Stockton Lake.

The trail marked here on the app isn’t what exactly what you get. I was told by some guys clearing brush that I was on private property. Oops.

Particularly nice trail in the spring and fall when it’s cool out. You walk along the river, and there are several places to access the river bank.

This is a beautiful area, the walk up to cemetery is a little strenuous, but my 70 yr old man can do it. It’s slippery in the rain. There are 2 benches on the way up, for those who want to just chillout. With the Mill and the river too, it makes this a lovely walk.

Good hike, not overly scenic, but typical of area. Couple bluff views, some water crossings. backpacker camps exist along trail.

Great views, and a pretty easy trail

Hiked on 10/16/2018, and there were no mosquitos (yeah!!). I have hiked the Clark Trail, and the longer Lewis version. Trees are starting to turn. By 11/1, this will be an incredible hike with beautiful bluff views.

For a special treat, hike about 1 mile to the first bluff for the sunset. Easy hike back with a head lamp.

Pretty cool trail. Rustic Missouri for sure. Make sure you keep an eye on the map because it's easy to lose the trail or make a wrong turn.

It was great weather for a hike on the red trail but it wasn't marked very clearly. We ended up almost walking the entire trail twice because we ended up turned around. I wish there were maps that were available. Warm enough to see some snakes and what little water that was in the creek was really clear! I'll definitely be back now that I know the way better.

Great trail, great scenery, easy to walk. Nice view of the lake.

Great little hike. Nice and flat for hiking with dogs on a lead.

Good for dog walks!

Lightly trafficked my butt! Love this trail.

Beautiful, Greensfelder has some of the best trails in the stl area.

By far my favorite hike in Missouri
