The Unrivaled Canyon Hike In Missouri Everyone Should Take At Least Once

It may not be the Grand Canyon in Arizona, but Hickory Canyons in Missouri can still make up for a pretty neat day hike. As a bonus, it’s located right near downtown Ste. Genevieve, where you can head after your hike to enjoy a bite to eat and drink in Missouri’s oldest town.

Ready to take a trip? Once you get to Farmington, go east on Highway 32 to Highway C. Go north about three miles on Highway C and turn left (south) onto Sprott Road (gravel). Head west on Sprott Road for about 1.75 miles until you reach the parking pull-offs for the trailheads.
