Wow! It is beautiful outside. This morning’s weather was perfect for Day 1 of the 12 Days of Hiking!

This morning I hiked Pickle Springs. Pickle Springs is a two mile loop with amazing views, rock formations, and waterfalls.

The leaves are just starting to change, but still made for some beautiful pictures!

The idea behind 12 Days of Hiking is to showcase all the great trails we have in the area and start gaining interest in possible future guided hikes.

Pickle Springs

Pickle Springs is located off of HWY 32 between Farmington and Ste. Genevieve. You can find more information about Pickle Springs by visiting the Missouri Department of Conservation website at or the Visit Missouri Tourism website at
