Sometimes getting the kids outdoors is downright difficult. After all, not a whole lot can compete with video games and social media these days. Hiking’s the perfect way to introduce the kiddos to the splendor – like crossing paths with local wildlife – of spending time outdoors. This kid-friendly trail in Missouri, for example, offers an abundance of shade, beautiful scenery, and it’s easy for hikers of all ages and skill levels.
