We asked some of the folks who adminster parks in that area for their very best recommendation. Here's what they came up with: Montauk State Park, which is about 50 miles from Rolla has a nice 1/2 mile trail called the Montauk Lake Hike. The trail circles a small lake with catch and release for trout. Bluff Spring feeds the lake. One can see wild life out and about along the trail. Montauk also provides peaceful fishing along the headwaters of the Current River which is stocked daily with trout. The park also offers lots of goodies in the retail store and a full service restaurant.
