Big Piney Trail at Paddy Creek Wilderness

They're some great views and this is a good hike to go on, the only problem is there are many trails not on most maps, it can get confusing and it's easy to get lost. The map you get offline and the map the park gives you are different . So if you're going to hike here be careful navigating! Other than that great hike!

Great hike. If you take all the alternates for the dirt trails, it will total 10 miles. This is the best set of trails we have hiked in the KC area. The trails are very well maintained and clearly marked. Well worth the trip to Smithville.

Great easy to moderate effort hike... would be great for kids. The trail meanders around a cute, rocky creek multiple times, there are great rocks and lots of mushrooms, for a happy mellow hike with no views it was very pleasant. We did the Matson Trail linked with the Oxen Trail. There are three trails at the park that you can link together to get around 6 +miles total. Nice grave parking lot, box full of maps, trails are marked well, even a port a potty at the lot. Directions on the sccmo.org page were spot on... i've attached a link

Completed the 8.2 mile loop in 4.5 hours with my kids ages 10, 8, 7, and 5. The weather was great, the trail had only a few muddy spots that were easy to get around, and barely any mosquitos to speak of. looking out over the river was great. I'm looking forward to going back when the leave start changing colors.

This is not a bad trail to get some quick miles on. There are plenty of rocks which would probably prove to be difficult if wet.

the directions given here to the trails is wrong. 70 e. to 7 hwy exit. head n. on 7 for 2.5 miles. take argus road on right.. its hard to see because you come up on it fast. once on argus follow for 2.5 miles. the trail parking lot is on the n. side of the road directly across from the archery range.

side trail near powder valley trail (which is preferred); a change of pace for folks who often walk Powder Valley, but definitely not a replacement of PV.

My favorite place to go. Excellent north loop. Great views, beautiful water sources (especially after a good rain), even a couple little waterfalls. Medium difficulty on some spots due to a couple high climbs. There are some great views up top though.

love running this trail, I loop it twice and it is a great workout. I've seen deer 10 feet off the trail. it is well marked and packed. some loose gravel on the climb so be careful running up.
