“A beautiful loop teeming with flora, fauna, and water features. A great place to escape the city and get into nature.”— Missouri Hiker
This area is excellent for running, backpack conditioning, getting the kids out of the house, or just to get yourself away for nature walks/hikes/runs. It's listed in some places as 'moderate' but, this rating would be directed more for the beginner or toward those who rarely get outdoors and 'suddenly decide' they want to take a walk in the woods. I would lean toward an 'easy' rating for those who regularly engage in running, or those who regularly participate in other outdoor activities requiring any amount of physical exertion.
