National Trails Day: Take a Hike!

6/3/2023 | Bennett Spring State Park | Lebanon, MO

Celebrate National Trails Day at Bennett Spring State Park by exploring the outdoors along one of the park’s five trails.

Never hiked before? No problem. Join park staff at 11 a.m. at the nature center for a guided hike on Bridge Trail. This trail is a 0.7-mile loop of moderate difficulty that goes upland in a white-oak-dominated woodland. After reaching the top the hill, it winds downward back to the spring and the stone Civilian Conservation Corps bridge. Participants will stop frequently to connect with and enjoy nature. The trail consists of natural surfaces such as dirt, gravel, and loose rocks with raised obstacles. Participants should bring water and wear appropriate shoes for hiking.

Hike Time: 11 a.m.

This event is being held in conjunction with American Hiking Society's National Trails Day initiative. For more information about National Trails Day and to see other events being held in Missouri State Parks, click here.
