This is essentially 2 hills and a valley. One hill is steep and overlooks the Meramec River. There is an asphalt path from the parking area across the bridge, but it ends part way through the park. Dress in layers because the sun doesn't get...More

Any outdoor nature parks are a positive for communities. I just don't find this one to be easy to manage, access, or hike.

After looking online, we decided to give this park a try. There is a pretty decent part of the trail that's paved and has bridges. Saw some deer 🦌 just off the trail and they didn't get spooked when they saw us. Overall great afternoon!

My dog and I frequent this trail throughout the year. Some of the hiking area, going down the hill, can be a little slick in rainy weather. There are plenty of shady spots and scenic (looking towards highway 44) views. There are benches and areas...More

Well Maintained Park for a short or long hike along the bluffs and down to the river. Beautiful. One problem is the amount of people that walk their dogs off leash. Not a fan.

My best friend/adopted brother convinced me to go hiking with him. We went to Emmenegger Nature Park across from Powder Valley in Kirkwood. We started up this hill which seamed to go on forever. But the further up we went the more you could see...More
