Missouri trails Map

This was my first big trail hike and it was much better than expected. I hiked this trail in late September and the Missouri weather was pleasantly warm. The hike was challenging but not too rough for a first. The campsite we chose had an amazing view and plenty of space for an secluded tent site.

great hike. beautiful sights of the river. it starts as lewis &clark but the the two trails split mid way. the app says its 4.7 miles but the trail head said 5.3.

This is a challenging but fun trail. Lots of great scenic view points. Great for the whole family. Very pet friendly.

Took the family and dog! Nice trail with nice amenities for kids.

This is a beautiful trail! Well kept but not very well marked in some places. However, the trail is fairly easy to follow.

Fun and beautiful trail

This is my go-to workout trail.

One of my favorites. Great all year round!

Great day for a hike. Views of the Missouri River were great. Our tracker has it closer to 8.6 miles. Did the loop in 3 1/2 hours

Fun trail. Bit narrow with traffic going both ways but overall fun.

Not sure why but my Fitbit measured closer to 10 miles rather than the 6.8 stated. Quite a workout, one of my favs

It was pretty muddy the the day we went. But beautiful scenery.

One of my favorite trails to hike!

Fun trail. well maintained

Great trail in the hilly woods! Lots of steep hilly rocky terrain and mud.....

I ran this trail in mid-December, starting from big parking lot at end of paved road by river. Favorite part is first mile or so, nice packed sand trail, lovely views of river. Most strenuous part is the stair section! Then, another great scenic section, high above RR tracks, expansive view of Meramec valley.

This is one of my favorite trails in Missouri. Beautiful views, great for an overnight backpacking trip. Great length for taking out first time backpackers.

Unfortunately, someone broke a window on our vehicle with a rock. There was nothing in the car and beer cans left in the parking lot.

Just wanted to leave a heads up here for people heading that way.

I will definitely hike this magical trail again despite this misfortune!

Ran this trail, challenging hills, decent straight aways, definitely do it again

One of my favorite trails to hike! The bluff overlooks are beautiful and there's two options based on what length of hike you want. It does get busy on the weekends in the spring/summer.

Beautiful, beautiful views.

Lmao what a joke. Yes a good trail for this part of the country, but THE DRAMA of inexperienced hikers/reviewers. I get it, not everyone has climbed a mountain or even done a 14er. But the clamorous reviews of some group needing to come down because of a little rain and thinking they were about to die...really ridiculous.

Fairly easy hike, can be done in 1 day, more fun in 2.

4 stars because it’s the best you’ll get down there. -1 for the drama, but if this was in any other part of the country...it would be 1 Star. Btw there is some wildlife, no bears but “little bears” that may get into your pack. So pack smart!

Trail was a bit muddy today after the rain but still highly recommend. Good challenge with the constant ups and downs. Saw only one other group of hikers and a few hunters.

very fun trail! family just went from trailhead to river lookout and back but look forward to doing whole loop without little kids!

Loved the views.

Great hike. Definitely a good work out. Due to the time of year though, the trail is very easy to lose because it’s completely covered by fallen leaves. Definitely be aware of where you are and periodically check the app if possible. Topographic map was very helpful. The view was great and very pleasant.

This is an excellent trail, well maintained, and with breathtaking vistas of the Missouri River basin sprinkled along the backside of the route. The trail features shorter five mile loop as well as the longer seven to eight mentioned here. Seriously one of my favorite day hikes - I stop here at least a few times a year.

Also good for trail running in my experience.

Be very careful during wet seasons. I hiked this trail this weekend and ended up slipping on a muddy hill and breaking my ankle. The EMTs said that they have to pull someone off the trail once or twice a month. Very beautiful trail other than that.

A great hike with pretty views! It was pretty muddy though!
