No ticks; mosquitoes; or hot, humid weather – winter hiking is where it's at! Knob Noster State Park encourages you to take part in a fun challenge this chilly season.

Park staff have placed a set of jingle bells on each of the park's seven trails. Seven sets of jingle bells can found on main loops or the white connector trails. 

To participate in this challenge ...

  1. Hike Knob Noster's seven trails.
  2. Find and ring the bells.
  3. Take a photo.
  4. Share your photo by using the hashtag #JingleBellHikes or by emailing it to Chris.Edmondson@dnr.mo.gov.

Trails are open from sunrise to sunset. Check for closures after wet weather by going to our Park and Site Status Map.

Good luck, and happy hiking!
