Hike the Lost Valley Trail

Rate this Adventure Missouri Lost Valley Trailhead, Weldon Spring

Added by The Outbound Collective

A quiet hike or bike ride along the Little Femme Osage Creek.

This well-marked trail in the Weldon Spring Conservation Area is open to hikers and bikers. Bikers will find that the loop is easier in the clockwise direction.

Look forward to wildflowers, creekside scenes, and hilly terrain.

Mountain Bike at Binder Lake

Missouri / Binder Lake Trail Head

There are four different loops here that all connect. The blue and green are the most ridden, but are still in great shape.  The trails are well marked so it would be hard to get lost.
