The Hike To This Gorgeous Missouri Swimming Hole Is Everything You Could Imagine
Hiking in Missouri is always a wonderful experience. However, Missouri summers get hot and humid. Hitting the pool after a long day outside is always a nice option but it’s definitely not a refreshing as a swim in one of Missouri’s spring fed rivers. At Sam A. Baker State Park you can hit the trails and splash around in the cool, rejuvenating waters of the St. Francois River. This gorgeous hike is one you won’t want to miss!
