Not too bad of a trail, but they are not well marked and a GPS may not be a bad idea.

Beautiful area. Frequently patrolled and safe. Great family campground.

I don’t understand it. I took my family there recently and paid an arm and a leg to go...walk. Here’s a tip; go to Roaring River park and walk through he campground in the valley. You’ll see the same thing, for free, and maybe even end up w some fish outta the deal. DC is a total ripoff. Boo.

I take my dog jogging through here occasionally, nice view at the top.

Great river. Lots of caves and springs to explore on the upper section above Alley Spring. Great swimming and fishing for the whole family.

Love this river! Can’t get enough

Fun little section with the put in and take out less than a mile apart. Great section for quick trips when you just need to get in the water and mess around

Well maintained loop for a easy couple miles. Go hike !!!

Great views, pretty waterfall, clear creek and dog friendly.

great trails.

Beautiful short little trail. 10/10 would recommend for a nice easy walk

I liked this trail quite a bit. No spectacular views, but enough hills to make it a hike rather than a walk. It was a bit muddy, so I'd recommend going when it's dry or frozen. My GPS clocked it at over 3 miles, and it took me a little over an hour with a dog that likes to stop and sniff!

Nice short hike!

Beautiful area and trail. Pay attention to the flora as you hike the trail. Awesome to see how it changes due to elevation differences.

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.

Nice scenery and great for a stroll through the woods. I would not suggest going for a few days after it rains, since the paths can get very muddy.

An absolutely beautiful spring! The road from south of Alton (160) is quite curvy. The sign to the trail is very small, so don’t miss it! The trail is actually only 1 mile and the elevation change is 450 feet. The spring is clear and peaceful. We saw a bald eagle soaring above the spring today!

The nice thing about this trail is that it leads to other trails. I'm not sure why they broke it out from Wallace State Park but either way all of their trails are fairly well interconnected or easily accessible from one tok another.

I enjoyed this trail with my daughter during an off season time. We didn't see many other people so that was nice considering they say it's heavily trafficked. The views were nice and the trail was easy to follow with places to take in the views.

Nice trail, it gets used by quite a bit of people. There's no question of where the trail is. It is not a loop trail so you'll have to either park a vehicle at the start and at the finish, or you'll have too turn around and hike back.
