Hiking St. Louis: A Guide to 30 Wooded Hiking and Walking Trails in the St. Louis Area

Hiking St. Louis contains detailed directions and descriptions of 30 unique hiking trails in the St. Louis metro area. The trails, almost all within an hour's drive time, include creeks and waterfalls, canyon and bluff over-looks, river valleys and hillsides covered with wildflowers, unique limestone formations and caves, a rainbow originating from Laumeier Sculpture Park and countless year-round breathtaking views.

"This trail guide is so easy to follow. It gives just a little history of an area and then exact and detailed directions of each trail. This book is for a local and tourist or newcomer to the area. I loved Cliff Cave Park and the overlook of the Mississippi river, which I had always wanted to find. And I loved Belle Fountaine and Coldwater Creek with the WPA ruins and giant staircase. The overlook there was spectacular too. I am discovering so many new places and some of the harder trails I have been shown how to make them easier. Ellisville has a very interesting trail system, on which I took my bike, being a paved trail, but mostly wooded. I love the information about available restrooms, suggested seasons difficulty of trails, etc. I will purchase this inexpensive book for many of my friends, relatives, and business partners because there is so much valuable information about the wooded trails all within the St. Louis area and it is in the format of a hiker-friendly book that is easy to carry."

"I haved lived in St. Louis for most of my life, yet I never knew there were so many beautiful parks hiding within our city. After reading Hiking St. Louis, I feel as though I have made a new discovery right underneath my nose. The hiking trail directions and maps will make it easy for me to find these nearby treasures and enjoy them during their best seasons. I look forward to pulling out those old hiking boots this upcoming Fall season."
