This is a great place to explore and see a variety of plant life. If you're into prairies then this is your best bet in the 4-state area, especially because you can also see bison grazing throughout the park. There are some areas with trees and hills that make the hike worth it.

I thought it was a nice touch to have a trail on the other side of an electric fence. Just be sure to be careful and read directions if you're not familiar with it.

The best part is the bison. Go check out the visitor center and see the location of the herd!

When you wake up on the small rise in a circle of twitchy prairie grass, you feel like you're the first person-- or maybe the last-- to see the sunrise.

This is one of my favorite spots in SWMO. Stop by the visitor's center and check with the ranger to make sure you're out of the way of the bison before you set out. The trail is only a mile, but the view from the backpacking campsite is the best for miles. No roads, no soybean fields, no towns, no people, no street lights. A good place to get away for just a night.
