Hike at Bluffwoods Conservation Area, St. Joe , MO.

This will be approximately a 4 mile hike. Three of those miles are considered difficult, with semi-steep or steep, rugged terrain. Bring plenty of water and snacks or a sack lunch. There is a picnic table at the trailhead, but primitive restroom facilities ONLY in the Conservation Area.

Bluffwood Conservation Area is 9 miles south of St. Joseph in the Missouri River loess hills. There are several scenic overlooks of the Missouri River floodplain looking west into Kansas . The area is mostly forested with scattered open grasslands. Hopefully the timing will be right to see some vibrant fall colors.

Here is a map of the area:

We will meet at the Parking Lot on the map Marked “A” (southwest corner).

    We had a great turnout and a nice hike. It was a really great group. Couldn't have asked for a better group for my first hike as an Outings Leader. Thanks to all who participated!

    Wonderful weather! The hike wasn't as ambitious as I'd hoped but a lovely walk.

    The map is not downloading and am not sure where that parking lot is.

    I am sorry, but I am going to cancel. I hope someone else can take my spot.
