I loved this trail for too many reasons to mention, it was well worth the hike, and refreshing to our tired bodies, after a day of hard biking from Alton Illinois, through Machens MO, on the Katy Trail.

We saw all ages on this 8 miles hike. Some parts are muddy and include crossing over a creek. You can take the cross over to make it a 3.5 miles hike. There are areas to stop by the river. Saw squirrels, tad poles, and...More

This is one of my favorite trails! Beautiful views, for about half the way the paths are fairly wide and easy to pass which is great for a quick walk with the family and then turn around. However, the last half is fun for the...More

This is actually a pretty good trail for the area. It's hard to find hikes with much elevation change here, and this one does have a couple good hills. It only gets 3 stars because there are really only 2 or 3 good overlook points...More

On this particular January thaw day, the path was very muddy in places. Aside from that distraction, it was a nice moderate hike. We saw some families, older folks, and a few groups with dogs.
