St. Joe State Park, with an 11-mile paved loop trail, is the place to go if you like easy walking without the noise of city streets. It’s also good for rugged hiking—the 6.5-mile Pine Ridge Loop on the park’s equestrian trail system has enough rocky terrain to challenge the toughest outdoors enthusiast.

I wanted to do an 8 to 10 mile trail run, so I chose the combination of the "red" and the "yellow" trails. On the positive side, the trail maps were quite good, and available at the trailheads for free. On the negative side, these trails were not maintained at all. The worst was the "red" trail -- I had to turn around and go back to the trailhead, because the trail was too overgrown by briar patches. This was a great disappointment, I had traveled to SE Missouri to specifically run that trail. I do not recommend it until they start to maintain it again.
