Follow This Abandoned Railroad Trail For One Of The Most Unique Hikes In Missouri
Missouri is well known for having the longest rail-to-trail park in the nation. The Katy Trail is just over 237 miles long and follows the Missouri River almost across the entire state. However, there are more converted rails-to-trails in the state that many people don’t know about. We think this 35 mile trail in southwestern Missouri should be your next hiking or biking adventure. Check it out!
