Boardwalk Nature Trail is a 0.8 mile lightly trafficked loop trail located near Puxico, MO that offers the chance to see wildlife. The trail is good for all skill levels and primarily used for hiking, nature trips, and mountain biking.
We enjoy walking the boardwalk with the kids and grandkids. It's easy enough that no one complains! The visitor center is nice and interactive.
we went a few weeks ago, after heavy rain. boardwalk was almost flooded so we chose to walk ditch 6 instead at the suggestion of the park ranger. beautiful walk, Marsh on both sides, snakes, snakes, snakes. I was warned ahead of time snakes are EVERYWHERE. my daughter and husband almost stepped on one ( different snakes). as long as you are aware ahead of time, it was beautiful. keep eyes peeled for snakes. enjoyed watching a cranes fly through the marshes.
The Boardwalk Nature Trail allows visitors to enjoy the Mingo Swamp without getting wet. Down this path lies a one-mile (1.6-km) loop trail through the bottomland hardwood swamp. A self-guided pamphlet of the trail is available at the Boardwalk parking lot. The path is wheelchair accessible.
