Hickory Ridge Loop Professional Reviews and Guides
"The Powder Valley Conservation Area considers itself an urban oasis. Open since 1991, the ar ea offers 112 acres of oak-hick ory forest to hikers. The Powder Valley Conservation Nature Center offers numerous educational opportunities for visitors to enhance their knowledge about the use of resources in an urban setting."
--JD Tanner, Best Hikes Near St. Louis (Falcon Guides).
"The Powder Valley Conservation Nature Center is a hidden gem in St. Louis. Located right off of I-44 and I-270, there are not even any signs along the roadways to advertise the area. Run by the Missouri Department of Conservation, since 1991 the nature center has educated more than one million visitors on the wise use of our urban resources.
All of the trails are paved, offering easy access for strollers and wheelchairs (the Hickory Ridge Trail has a steep incline and decline though). There are also plenty of benches along the trails to encourage visitors to take their time and soak in the outdoors. The nature center, interpretive displays, and oak-hickory forest make for the perfect brief getaway."
