Epic Missouri Trail Named One of the Top 15 Parks in America
When it comes to state parks, America has some iconic ones. One of the most prestigious outdoors websites just named an epic Missouri trail as one of the top 15 in America.
For most hikers, All Trails is the definitive guide to the best destinations. Not only do they provide their own guides and reviews to incredible outdoor places, but hikers can leave their own, too.
All Trails just named what they consider to be the top 15 state parks in America. At #13, you'll find a very familiar trail for anyone who lives in or has spent a lot of time visiting Missouri. All Trails says the 13th best state park you can visit in America is The Katy Trail.
If you're not familiar with the Katy Trail, it's a 240-mile trek across Missouri that nearly crosses the entire state.
It's very popular among hikers and bikers since it's a rail trail that gets you away from dangerous vehicle traffic and gives you sights of the Missouri River like this.
All Trails praised the Katy Trail in their national list saying:
Cyclists can pedal through picturesque farmland, quaint towns, and lush forests while enjoying stunning views of the Missouri River.
They're not wrong. You will cross many sweet bridges like this one.
If you choose to travel the Katy Trail, you'll be walking/riding in the footsteps of Lewis and Clark much of the way.
The Katy Trail is one of those bucket list adventures that everyone should do at least once if they're physically able. It's 240 miles you'll never forget and can now be considered one of the top 15 parks you can visit in America.
