Easy to locate. Easy to park. Trails well maintained and marked. One drawback: only a pit toilet available at the trailhead. But the toilet area was clean.

I LOVED IT! Great place to hike, with lots of history behind it. The watchtower offers a great view of Taum Sauk, along with the power plant. 10/10!
