The 100 Missouri Miles Challenge provides a great opportunity for Missourians to get outdoors and enjoy the state’s award-winning trails, including the more than 1,000 miles of trails in Missouri State Parks. As the challenge continues, visitors can once again explore the outdoors on state park and historic site trails and discover a fun new adventure in Missouri State Parks.
From the paved trails that make a great spot for a sunset stroll to a challenging hike through the wilderness, there are options for all ages and activity levels to enjoy. State park trails are not just for walking; visitors can enjoy paddling on our water trails, a day bike riding on the Katy Trail, or a horseback experience on our equestrian trails. A historic journey is also a possibility as many of the state’s trails trace their origin to the foundations of our state as the “Gateway to the West.”
Missouri State Parks recognizes that trails are valuable, and not just for their natural elements. Spending time on a trail is a great experience with a multitude of physical and mental benefits. Trails are like a free tonic for the mind, body and soul that makes our lives richer and happier.
