  • I'm so glad my family hiked here. The October weather was beautiful. The trail is a 2 mile loop, and it passes canyons, a small waterfall, springs, natural arches, outcropped rocks, giant ferns, and l...  more »

  • Bad storm damage has ruined the Trail Through Time. We couldn't complete the short loop because fallen trees in the trail blocked our path. The trail marker posts are also either fallen down or covered up. If you're familiar with the trail, it won't bother you. But if you don't know where you're going, you could easily get lost. The MO Department of Conservation needs to do trail maintenance.
  • Unexpected sandstone bluffs nestled in the woods. Plenty of places to get off the trail and find something new. A few good spots to climb up a 60 foot cliff face. Bone dry when I went so the small water fall wasn't doing much.
  • Nice hike, a little short but easy to take a few times for 10k training . Nice roots and rocky ledges for foot agility and optional long steps to stretch foot strides Plenty of smooth rolling hills to stride easy or make up for lost time
  • We loved this trail. It is really beautiful, but it is poorly marked. It needs markers!!! Getting lost on it especially during late afternoon when the sun is going down is a real possibility.
  • Beautiful and challenging 2 mile course. Great rock formations and caves.Plenty of elevation changes, too. The trail could be a bit better marked.
