Hickory Canyons Natural Area, a little-known gem in southeast Missouri, offers one of the best short hikes in the St. Louis region. Its trail follows the spine of a rocky ridge, wanders past steep cliff edges, skirts towering bluffs, descends into deep hollows, and meanders along intermittent streams with enchanting seasonal waterfalls. Hickory Canyons is owned by the LAD Foundation, a nonprofit organization founded by Leo Drey to protect unique and beautiful natural Missouri landscapes that might have been lost to development.
