Early into the quarantine life, before the temperatures got too hot, we did lots of hiking together as a family. There are just so many fun places to explore in the St. Louis area! Every where we went was a place new to us and we were really impressed with Klondike Park in St. Charles County. Read on to see why it’s the perfect places for family hiking!
Family Hiking At Klondike Park in St. Charles County
The hikes that we ventured out on were all places that my husband researched and decided would be less populated. Something that is important for social distancing! Another lesser known area to hike is the Myron and Sonya Glassberg Family Conservation Area in Eureka, MO.

Family Hiking Near St. Louis
This one located in Augusta, Missouri and only 26 miles from our home!
We liked Klondike Park so much that we actually went twice. I’m sure that we will go again during this pandemic, but are thinking it would be perfect for fall. If you are braver than I with the humidity then I suggest going hiking there in the morning or evening. Just when the temps aren’t too bad. What can I say? Heat and humidity is my weakness. I’m ready for this next month to go by and for fall in the Lou!
What you’ll see at this unique place in St. Charles County:
The entire area is full of water features. Ponds and lakes remain in old quarry areas and beautiful views of the Missouri River from up on the bluffs.
All along the Katy Trail!
There are also deep wood hiking trails and horse trails.
All of the trails are only a few miles long and varying terrain. Definitely family friendly in level of difficulty.
We particularly liked exploring the lake area. It’s just off of the Katy Trail!
Parts of the area really reminded us of Yellowstone.
Our goal this fall is to return and stay a few nights in one of the cozy cabins!
Cute, right? Go HERE for details on cabin rentals.
