The cover of Missouri State Parks's Trail book


In 2012 Missouri State Parks took on the project of creating a guide to help visitors who want to explore the nearly 1,000 miles of trails in Missouri's state parks and historic sites. An RTP grant funded the creation of “Trails of Missouri State Parks.” The 422-page, full-color book lists trails in 58 state parks and historic sites.


The user-friendly trail descriptions created -- thanks to the work completed on the trail book -- are posted on In addition, the maps from the trail book are available online for visitors to print and take with them before embarking on a trail.
