Hiking At Hawn State Park In Missouri Is Like Entering A Fairytale

Fairy tales are as much about the breathtaking settings as the epic love stories they tell. Hiking at Hawn State Park, especially if you set off on the Whispering Pines Trail, is something like stepping into a fairy tale. Sunlight peeks through canopies of trees. A waterfall cascades down. Footsteps echo on a wooden bridge. It’s one of those hikes that’s definitely worth adding to your outdoor bucket list.
