Taum Sauk Mountain State Park Professional Review and Guide

"At Taum Sauk Mountain State Park, you’ll visit Missouri’s tallest peak, then hike to its longest waterfall, with rocky glades and panoramic vistas galore—all in a 3-mile hike in the St. Francois Mountains. Still more attractive landscapes await you on the Taum Sauk Section of the Ozark Trail."

My dogs and I hiked this park almost every week. The six mile hike consist flat praire land, tree covered flat terrain, inclined rocky terrain, plenty of deer, and the best of all, a creek for the pets to swim in. The cons: You can get lost-its not challenging. As someone who works 60-70 hours a week I tend to hike for excersise and solidarity, and this trail,though very convient for me(I live 10 minutes from it) gives me niether. The trail backs to a disc golf course, subdivision, and other park activities. For someone who has dogs-dont bring them unless you want to watch for rangers, they will ticket you with no leash. Overall, hike this trail for a quick before work or after work hike, and save the weekends for the long, more challenging hikes.
