Great paved trail. We had the little niece and nephews with us and they could easily walk it with us.

So glad we went on this trail. Views were beautiful and the caves were really amazing! I would have given it 5 stars but the trails are not marked well at all! We went off a trail and didn’t realize it for quite some time!

Beautiful run/hike!! I enjoyed every minute of it. I recommend starting the trail from the right entrance (not the bridge); that way you get to do the hike and experience the beautiful views towards the end!

Beautiful scenery

Absolutely worth the uphill hike. Views are beautiful, this is a photographer's dream. Just be sure to take the right trail on the way down. You have to look for your trail and a log bench on the right otherwise you will take the obvious trail that goes straight... into nowhere.

This trail has everything. A view of the spring with its clear turquoise water. Then a steep climb through woods to fire tower. Then great views of cliffs and benches. Then a bit along the river. It really is a trail that covers everyone

Favorite trail in the state. It wasn't difficult, though it had a ton to offer. Great views with elevation and beautiful creek crossings. Plenty to see through the hike.

A great trail for the family

Beautiful, but the trail was poorly marked and difficult to follow in places. Included a copy of the trail map in the photos section.

There was a prescribed burn in progress, so we had to modify our planned route. Half the loop is flat, in the bottoms below the bluff. The other half is on the bluff, up and down from one beautiful overlook to another. Lots of dogs and people. Beautiful trail for so close in to the city.

The trail is easy to follow until you get to the creek bed, then it’s anyone’s guess. This place needs markers! There are two trails that cross each other and unless you’re an expert you have no idea which path to take.

Nice paved trail along Table Rock Lake.

As of 12/18/17 trail is closed for maintenance.

Loved it! Kid friendly. Relatively flat, so not too difficult for my littles and plenty to entertain everyone. We especially liked the playground area.

Got. To trail head and looks like people have set up living quarters. Just didn't feel safe.

This was a great trail for my dog and I! You will have to cross the creek multiple times so wear a good pair of waterproof hiking shoes. This is a clearly marked trail so you shouldn’t have to worry about getting lost. The trail can get rather rocky in some places and there are also areas with a lot of roots across the trail so take some time in those areas.

Nice easy trail. There are picnic tables and a hitching post. Some fallen trees to navigate around, but overall an easy hike.

Enjoyable hike, several trails to choose from.

I ran this for the first time. It was thoroughly enjoyable. Difficult hills and rocks added to the beauty. The water crossing were not. A problem either. When you start running it’ll take just a minute to warm up. All the negative reviews are for people with no imagination and find little discomforts like rocks and flowing water to ruin their time.
One of the most vivid memories of my run was a particular oak tree that stood out amongst many other trees. I can’t wait to run the whole trail system when it’s all green.

Hiked the “Low Water Trail” in 3/14:18 and it was muddy...but fun! The middle part of this trail (which follows along the Meramec) is mostly flat and at this time of the year is bug-free.

Great walking path. do wish that there are Trail markers so you know how far you've gone.

I started at the trail to the dam, ended up at a fork to where you could go see the dam or take the turkey creek trail. I went towards the dam and then went down turkey creek a little ways but couldn’t find where you cross the river so I turned around. It is a little rugged but my dog and I made it just fine. I would like to go back and try and find out where the crossing is.

After all the heavy rains we have had, the hiking trail was completely washed out.

Great for all ages

Absolutely love this park and trail! I have been coming here since I was a child and have watched the trails grow. The mountain bike trails are all dirt with some rock, there’s lots of crossing paths and it’s easy to lose which path you’re on. You can go off the trail and find a beautiful creek at the back end. But be prepared with cell phone charged for navigation plenty of opportunities to get mixed up in where you’re heading! Can be muddy at times. Tree covered and away from all city activity set back off some back roads! Nice and quiet!

....It made for an enjoyable, scenic hike....We went counterclockwise, so ended with the best views....It was a little muddy....We only did the loop on the western side (across the road from the TH)....Will definitely be back soon to the the eastern trails....And then later, after it greens up really good, I'll be back to do em all.... I would definitely recommend this place.... :)

Trailer is marked very well and was a great height

Beautiful place. If you catch it when it is dry you can get down under the natural bridge and check out the caves.
