Great trail but some spots are very poorly marked. No water currently flowing but several very nice camping spots.

Moderate level was accurate. Saw a lot of different plants and trees. Different terrain though out the hike.

This trail was not too difficult as I am a novice hiker. However, was a bit overgrown. I enjoyed this trail.

Grindstone nature area trail is not a loop, I got to Maguire Blvd and either it's not clearly marked how to continue or you just better turn back. This is about 1.5 miles into the trail. This is after you have crossed under the old 63 and interstate 63, not my idea of quiet morning nature walk.

This is a less popular trail in the area. I ran on it today at 9am and didn't see a single other person. Leaves are starting to fall, making for some tricky footing. If you're prepping for a hilly course, this is a great training area with a long steep climb clockwise and two shorter climbs going counterclockwise. The backside of the trail is my favorite. There is a nice half mile cruising area with great footing.

This trail has some challenging climbs with tricky footing. I had to slow down on the descents going both directions, mainly due to footing and grade. Starting out, Clockwise gives you a little more of a flat stretch to warm up on. Whereas counter clockwise is balls to the wall almost from the word balls! I tend to use this trail as a connector to rock hollow.

Might be one of most interesting part of the Katy Trail, more curves and hill (small) easy ride. Watch coming back into Clinton if strong wind from West to Southwest. A long hill into wind. Fun ride.
