The Spooky Missouri Hike That Will Lead You Somewhere Deserted
Located just outside of one of Missouri’s largest cities is a little county park that hides an impressive secret.

These picturesque remains look a bit eerie but this hike is more thrilling than chilling! Don’t just take our word for it, keep reading to find out where you can start this awesome hike!
