Great. Well maintained trail. Its lit at night, as well. Only downside is that there is no shade.

I love this trail!! It’s easy to access, great parking area, lots of activities and beautiful scenery. We usually ride it with our mountain bikes, but have also walked it. Paved almost completely.

This is an underrated trail in my opinion. The first mile isn’t great but after that it gets really nice. We saw deer, quail, and armadillo. It is an easy hike but very scenic trail. My only complaint is it is a little dusty.

Would be more fun for bikers! The trail was initially more peaceful and captivating but after a mile in, the scenic views were not that appealing. I would go back to River Legacy to walk if you need to go to a place nearby.

Pros:
- Paved
- Easy to access
- One cool area to get some photos

Cons:
- There were a couple of homeless people living in tents in the park off some of the paths
- Goes through residential neighborhood
- Only 40% shaded — brought our dog and weren’t impressed

There was so much trash. Very sad

Beautiful views!

Feel like this is more of an easy, than moderate. All paved which isn’t ideal to me but would be good with bikes.

First timer on this trail. I traveled SOBO to the end and returned via the road. The first part of this very well marked trail had quite a bit of prairie runs - not my cup of tea - the last half of the trail did include mostly forested areas. The elevation changes offered some challenge, but it’s nothing an average fitness level hiker can’t handle. I’d give it a difficulty level of 3/5. The trail had very light traffic...only saw a woman + her dog, a couple, and a man + his two young boys. Would recommend treating your clothes with your choice of insect repellent because there are stretches of the trail that are very narrow; so, you will be brushing against foliage along the way.

I’ve lived in the area for years but finally tried out this trail. I enjoyed it and will visit again. Not busy and people I ran across were friendly.

Loved it!

I quit coming to this trail after several tries. The bikers make it miserable

Not one of our favorite trails. No shade and it's crowded. The trail is long but it's not really wide enough. While your walking or running you will have to watch for cyclist coming up from behind you. This trail just isn't wide enough

beautiful trail. Smooth ride.

It's a great hike that is nearby but feels remote when hiking it. I love the elevation changes that happen across the hike.

The trail is well taken care of, and the park is well maintained; although I dont recommend doing this one in the afternoon in the summer... its 6.5 miles from start to finish and then back to your vehicle... bring lots of water if you do it over the summer. tons of prairie like chunks of trail (no tree cover).

so let's all get together and clean it up!

Eric and Janine, not sure where y'all were but this trail is very well marked and maintained. The Natuture Center is only open from 7 am to 5 so maybe that was the issue. The southern most trailhead is at the same parking spot that is for Greer Island.

This is a great trail but beginners be aware. There are several ups and downs with rock or railroad ties. Great views at the top. Wish the old resting spot still had a roof. The dog loved this hike.

Really nice marked trails.

I love this one! Safe for pulling a trailer with my one year old and plenty of shaded areas!

Great trail if you like a good little hike but don’t mind getting a bit lost. Most of the trails are not marked until you get to the top. Several places are pretty steep but not too bad. The bottom portions are nice with plenty of shade. Not a place for children.

Definitely easy to maneuver and there is always an easier way down those trains.
