Easy Pace Castlewood River Scene Trail Hike

Needs a location

This is another Easy Pace Hike for people who are beginning hikers, or, who are not always in a hurry. We average 2.5 to 3 mph. We will hike the River Scene Trail. Total distance is around 3.5 miles. We will climb some very steep hills, and go down 218 stairs. Castlewood is the busiest State Park in MO. Bring water and hiking poles - if you have some. You should also wear hiking shoes with stiff soles to resist foot bruising from the rocks on the trail. It's always handy to have extra shoes and a towel for the ride home. Here's some info for the trail.

WHAT IS IT:
Fun 5.3 miles on the popular Clark Trail. (It's popular but it does have some hills. You will sweat!) It's a night hike, something a bit different.

We'll hike at about 3 mph (20 minutes per mile).
This is NOT A HIKE FOR BEGINNERS.

WHAT TO BRING:
Bring water. Dress for the weather. Wear hiking shoes, trail runners, or boots, no open toed sandals. There are roots and rocks and steps. Wear micro-spikes if it is icy and insulated boots if it is cold enough.
