Hike Hidden Springs Trail

Missouri / Hidden Springs Trail

This two and a half mile trail shares a trail head with White Oak Trail. It also intersects with the Trail of Four Winds but is clearly marked.

Hike the Spring Trail

Missouri / Spring Trail

This hike starts out on a half mile of paved trail. From here you will climb a ton of steps to the top, which when the leaves are off the tress can offer a pretty good view.

Hike the White Oak Trail

Missouri / White Oak Trail

This trail is located across the road from the horse riding stables. It is an easy one mile hike but can be longer if you connect to Fawn's Ridge Trail. It is an easy hike and is very family friendly.
