  • Emmenegger Nature Park is a very special and unique place. You will not find a park with more Ozark biodiversity within the Highway 270 beltway. A short paved lowland trail leads to an 1.8 mile unpave...  more »

  • I hiked the loop this evening. It was a very nicely maintained trail. I'll do it again! There was a good variety of surfaces; paved, gravel, stones, hard pack dirt... Some flat... Some hills... Not boring. It was fun walking over the little bridges and walking along the creek. My only constructive criticism would be that I wish the loop trail was marked more clearly from the counter-clockwise direction. If you go clockwise, it's fine! But the trail turns are easy to miss going the other direction.
  • Good hikes that are easy to get to. Paved loop trail is paved & accessible to strollers/wheelchairs. Longer trail is a more vigerous dirt path with lots of up/downhill. Still very possible for me who hasn't been doing much hiking. Only downside is that there are a few places where it's unclear where the trail goes; I always managed to guess correctly but don't know where I would have wound up otherwise.
