Join a park naturalist on our popular Shut-ins Trail to commemorate National Trails Day. You will venture through a lush bottomland forest past talus slopes, blooming wildflowers and streaming waterfalls. Learn what makes the Shut-ins Trail such an enjoyable trail to experience, than help keep Missouri’s parks beautiful by picking up trash on the return trip home. This trail is mostly flat and three miles round trip. If you choose to remain at the shut-ins swimming hole, remember to bring along swim wear.
Hike time: 1 p.m.
