This One Easy Hike In Missouri Will Lead You Someplace Unforgettable

In 2013, American Trails named Missouri ‘Best Trails State’ for its abundance of trails (nearly 1,000 miles of managed trails and 500 miles of National Recreation Trails) and the variety of activities available throughout them. There are tons of amazing walks to choose from, but the easy-peasy Shut-In Trail in Sam A. Baker State Park is guaranteed to lead you someplace amazing.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:
