Looking for a way to hike into Missouri's outdoors? Here are plenty of options.

1. KATY TRAIL (225 miles, from Clinton to Columbia)

This hiking and bicycling path is one of the largest rails-to-trails conversions in the United States. The trail takes hikers and bicyclists to breath-taking view of the Missouri River, along bluffs and through quaint river towns.
