missouri named Best trails state


In Missouri, we’ve always known our trail system was special. For years, trail managers have been devoting significant time and resources to maintaining and developing trails across the Show-Me State. Missouri was honored on a national level for this dedication in April 2013 when Missouri was awarded the distinction of “Best Trails State” by American Trails, the world’s largest online trails resource.

The prestigious award, given to the top trail state every two years, recognizes innovative and successful trail sharing efforts, programs and systems. American Trails applauded Missouri trail managers for understanding the importance of pooling their resources together for the betterment of the trail system as a whole through initiatives like VisitMissouriTrails.com and the State Park Trail Inventory Database project.

The true winners with this award are the trail lovers who use Missouri trails to explore the outdoors, get in touch with nature, discover new landscapes and refresh their body and spirit. The new VisitMissouriTrails.com will make it even easier for trail users to discover new trails and share memories about current favorites.
