The best hiking is anywhere you can find morels and dogs are allowed!!! Can't be specific because I don't want anyone to steal my spots! Hopefully I find some today so my belly is full for dancing!

I like traveling right across the river to the columbia, il/valmeyer, il area. There's a hiking trail called Rock City. The trail leads you up and along the bluffs looking over thousands of acres of beautiful farm land. The trails follows the fringe of the bluff and through endangered hill prairies until it leads you to the end of one of its trails where there's a scenic view. Essentially, it's a cliff that hangs a good hundred feet off the ground and the view is spectacular. Seeing the sun slowly set behind the Mississippi River is something that not too many people get to see. Not to many people visit the trail, so it's very enjoyable to seek solitude out in the country. I wouldn't have it any other way! All in all, it's my slice of heaven. Beauty is everywhere, you just have to find the best spots to observe it all.

I forget what it's called but there is a huge cave that has a giant sand volleyball court and bar inside of it up in the hills. Awesome!!!

My favorite place to take a day hike in St. Louis is Castlewood Park.  The circling trails accept anyone, from families with small children, to intense mountain bikers, from horseback riders,and even to groups of teenagers sketching out, passing around a skinny joint.  On any given day, you can see so many different types of people with one thing in common: a love for nature.  What a great place to go for nature lovers!  Nowhere else in St. Louis is there a park with such beautiful winding, hilly trails, scenic railroad views, or fallen trees, instantly making bridges and benches.  Everyone greets you with a smile, as if you are all part of some secret club.  You might as well be, as anyone who knows Castlewood like I do is immediately considered a friend.  

I remember going as a child with my older brother.  He would bring his mountain bike and ride the trails, and I would play in the creek.  I would build damns and catch crawdads and giggle and scream, making friends with other children.  He would twist through wooded hills, ramping off fallen trees and splashing through muddy puddles.  Hours later we would reconvene, both very pleased with our experiences.  And today I take his role, sometimes riding my bike, or sometimes I just walk quietly, enjoying the beauty of the park.  In a decade I hope to bring my children here, and be able to share memories of my childhood with them.   Castlewood Park is the best place for a day hike in St. Louis, and it is one of the best places to build memories of joy.

 In St.Charles County out near Augusta there is a trail called Lost Valley. It is in the Busch Wildlife Conservation Area.  It features an aggressive trail which can be hiked or if you prefer, biking.  If you pay close attention you'll find a spring that comes out of the rocks in the side of the mountain.  There are several old ruins and then pasture. After the pasture there is an uphill switchback, a trail along the ridge of the mountain, and then a switchback down the other side.  You will cross shallow water, so make sure you have appropriate footwear/gear.  This is our favorite hike that we enjoy for so many reasons.  It is a great drive, convenient, and we love listening to our favorite Yonder album, Elevation on the way there to get in the spirit of our hike.  Happy Hiking, Floyed and Stephanie

My favorite hiking spot without a doubt would have to be Shaw Nature Reserve. Operated by the Missouri Botanical Garden, Shaw is well-kept and maintained year-round. There, you can bask in the beautiful surroundings and explore the many hiking trails that weave throughout the reserve.

Shaw is truly one of the best places to experience Missouri wildlife. With acres and acres of land that have been restored to reflect a habitat untouched civilization, Shaw is a glimpse into what Missouri may have looked like to it's original inhabitants. There, you will find a diverse array of landscapes and native plant species as well as a variety of animals in their natural habitat.

From the boundless meadows where wild prairie grass grows, to the breathtaking overlooks and meandering allure of the Meramec river, Shaw is a spectacular display of the wonder and beauty that is Missouri wildlife.

Cahokia mounds has to be one of the coolest day hikes around St. Louis. Climbing around ancient indian grave yards? What could be better, if you don't mind crossing the river. A concert on the mounds would be an awesome experience.

Hiking Chubb trail... Dodging the horseback riders, high fiving the mountain bikers, and crusing by Elk Park to say hello to the bison

I enjoy trying to go to the zoo on a Sunday during the summer and attempting to find a parking spot. Eventually I give up and park at the bottom of Art Hill and then commandeer someone's paddle boat. After pushing the person and their dumb dog in the water I paddle as far as the lake will take me...which is the Boat House and is in the opposite direction of the zoo. After being dragged out of the boat by a Boat House waiter, I run out the restaurant and push over the first person I see riding a bike and attempt to peddle but end up going nowhere since the incline of the hill leading to the zoo is roughly 45 degrees. Eventually I pass out and the paramedics take me and put me in an air conditioned ambulance. Right as we pass the zoo I kick open the door and ride the gurney straight to the penguin house. Why are puffins so darn cute!?
