“Did the trail for my daily run”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

My husband and I went out for our run here. It was great! Nothing beats running on a well paved road that runs along a river and through the woods. The trail goes on both sides of the river to make a large circle via 2 bridges. It was beautiful and smelled fabulous with all the honeysuckle blooming! It will make running on the treadmill at the gym hard!

“Unique, Beautiful, Educational”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

Wildcat park has been around forever, but only recently did it receive the funds for a Conservation Center and Bird-watching preserve. An amazing place to take the whole family. Lots of hiking trails, scenic views, fishing, picnic areas, classes are conducted daily on bird-watching, observing nature, wood craft.

“Ok for this part of the country”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

I am from the west where most land is open to the public. Missouri has very little public access.
Wildcat glades is far from a wilderness experience, but for this part of the country I suppose people who don't know any differently will appreciate a little bit of freedom.

“Great for kids!”
Reviewed 19 November 2013

We took our daughter here last summer, and she loved it! One tip: If you decide to walk the trail to the Falls, wear comfortable shoes! And do not look the geese in the eyes....

“Trails”
Reviewed 4 November 2013

The building was locked so we just hiked the paved and dirt trails. Good for fall foliage. There was a nice falls on the river at the bridge.
