This Magical Hike Through A Missouri Forest Is Unexpectedly Colorful

Mark Twain National Forest has over 750 miles of trails and encompasses over 1.5 million acres of land. You’ll have plenty of hiking trails to choose from, but every single one will offer a front row seat to stunning fall foliage. Come explore the forest and enjoy the dazzling display.
