Wildcat Glades Walk is a 3.4 mile moderately trafficked loop trail located near Joplin, Missouri that offers scenic views and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, nature trips, and birding and is accessible year-round.
Local fishing and camping area, one unique species of lichens thrives in area.
I will have to go back and walk the entire trail, as this was my second trail of the day so I only did one of the loops. You definitely need a map for this trail because it isn't just ONE loop... there are multiple ways to travel and it is a lot farther than 3.2 miles like this app states. I wasn't that impressed with the parts that I saw. There were trash and clothing laying about. You can tell they are working to clean it up and make it better, but its just not there yet... but maybe the other parts are prettier.
Love love love his trail! My family comes up to visit from Ok and Ark and we hike this every time! Beautiful views and something for all skill levels! Definitely recommend!
Love this place
done the 3.4 mile loop from the bridge thru the bluffs and back around by the river and some cool rock formations. will definitely be back to do lunch atop the bluff.
Well-maintained and beautiful views! Needed the map to navigate.
will definitely visit again.
Great trail with beautiful cliffs and water scenery.
I visit this trail probably three times a week, half of it is very easy the other half can be difficult for some. This is a beautiful and mostly well maintained trail that has cliff sights, caves, and a nice view of the creek!
