minor trail in a suburban park. Yes hard to distinguish, but it is there.

This trail does not exist anymore. It's overgrown, and the exercise equipment is rusted out. You can barely see where the trail use to be. There are fresh woodchips piled up that indicate they might try to redo the path, but haven't started. It's too open to be a nature trail and too overgrown to be a walking trail.

Nice hiking/biking trail within Liberty, MO. Lots of switchbacks and trail crossings along this trail. Also has a cross country loop.

Lots of shade and nicely marked trails. I took my two dogs and they loved it! The only thing that would have made it better would have been more water but with such a dry season its tough to find the little streams.

Stocksdale Park and Walnut Woods Conservation Area trail is mainly built for Mountain Biking, but is a great hike. Because of it's nature, you can build up to a six or seven mile hike utilizing the different trails in the two areas. We hiked mainly the south side of Stocksdale Park and the Walnut Woods Conservation Area, sticking to the more difficult trails. The hike was nice, over well-maintained trails. There are lots of optional trails that you can take, usually well marked for their difficulty and numbered as well.

This trail (system) really has three distinct parts.
a) a paved 1/2 mile loop around a kids play area and down through some woods
b) a grass/field run used by the Liberty Cross Country team. This path isn't really marked, but travels directly beside the tree line / forest. It is identifiable by the trimmed grass area about 15 feet wide by the trees
c) a dirt trail through the woods, which appears to generally have been intended for mountain biking, though can be hiked or run as well. The trail is pretty well maintained, and has had some structures built to avoid poor drainage areas. There is also permanent markings at a number of trail crossings or intersections to help keep you on track. That being said, I find the trail to be a bit hard to follow, as there are many trail paths in the same wooded area, and not all the crossings are marked. Frankly, by the time I got to what I thought was nearing the tail-end of the trail, I wasn't really sure if I had crossed back onto a previous section of trail or not. The trail contains sections of both easy and moderate ability, and I found most of those marked well. The trail is quite pretty. I almost never encounter anyone on the trail, so it is very peaceful and immersive. The only advice I would give is if you intend to run the whole trail, make sure you leave some extra time in case you have issues and re-run some portions. Bringing your spidey-sense may help you keep track of where you are as well.

Though listed as 3 miles or less, you could easily build a 6-7 mile run on this trail system, considering the wooded part of the trail and the cross-country grass-path.
