The Hiking Trail Hiding In Missouri That Will Transport You To Another World
From caves to mountains, there are many natural wonders for outdoor enthusiasts to explore in Missouri. If you are looking for great views and ancient geological rock formations, you need to visit Hughes Mountain near Ironton. According to the Missouri Department of Conservation, “The rhyolite of Hughes Mountain formed from ancient lava flows around 1.4 billion years ago.” You can see these ancient rock formations today at the end of the Devil’s Honeycomb Trail, a relatively easy 1.6-mile hike to the top of the mountain.
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
