This is such a great park! The trails are great and the views of the Mississippi River are amazing. If you walk down the trail past the main overlook spot you will find tons of small offshoots from the main trail that lead to nice rocks to sit on and look at the river. Pretty much the best thing ever. The lake here is pretty nice too and has a boat ramp. Also, there is apparently an old castle somewhere in the woods on the Ameren UE property adjacent to the park.

Wonderful paved paths for those who prefer a flat easy walk in the woods. For those looking for more of a challenge try the unpaved paths. Some flat, some hilly and steep. Beautiful overlooks over the Meramec River. Highly recommend for those looking for a new place to hike. My daughter and I had a great time following the trails through the woods.
