Family Friendly It is easy to navigate the trail and, while steep in parts, we have seen several kids playing and hiking on the trail.

Description

This is a really nice wooded trail with an overlook area and panoramic views of the Meramec River. A couple of small ponds are easily accessible through well-marked side trails. Expect a very steep first 3/4 of a mile.

Along this trail, there is a small creek and the terrain varies from older pavement for the first quarter of a mile to rock, dirt, and small field crossings. Overall, it's really nice for hiking.

Flora & Fauna

Small snakes, turtles, and lizards can be seen on this trail.
