Great Missouri Vistas

Having completed several trails throughout my home state of Missouri . I can say that Bell mountain loop gives some breath taking views. Several great lookouts as well as camp spots. Perfect place to see the sun rise or set. This is not a difficult loop for the rewards one is given. Great hike for families as well. If your backpacking in Missouri I would give this careful consideration. As well it joins the Ozark Trail . Therefore you have many options for distances and desires. As well the local park office at Johnson shut ins offers very reasonable shuttle services. Be sure to take in Taum Saux Mountain as well the tallest point in Missouri.
