Ste. Genevieve Disc Golf Course

Disc golf is played much like traditional golf. Instead of a ball and clubs, however, players use a flying disc, or Frisbee®. The sport was formalized in the 1970's, and shares with "ball golf" the object of completing each hole in the fewest number of strokes (or, in the case of disc golf, fewest number of throws). A golf disc is thrown from a tee area to a target which is the "hole". the hole can be one of a number of disc golf targets; the most common is called a Pole Hole® an elevated metal basket. As a player progresses down the fairway, he or she must make each consecutive shot from the spot where the previous throw has landed. The trees, shrubs, and terrain changes located in and around the fairways provide challenging obstacles for the golfer. Finally, the "putt" lands in the basket and the hole is completed.

Pickle Springs Natural Area

Pickle Springs Natural Area has been designated a Natural Landmark by the National Park Service for its biological and geological values as an undisturbed site. A two-mile trail named the 'Trail Through Time' winds through the park and guides the visitor through 500 million year old 'geologic wonders' carved in sandstone. The trail features clear streams, cool canyons, spectacular bluff views and 'The Slot', a crevice marked with holes, pockets and ridges. Visitors must climb through the 'Keyhole' to descend to the creek below. Twin foot bridges cross Bone Creek and pass Mossy Falls. The park is a 'primitive' natural area and does not have services. Be sure to bring a camera and plenty of liquids before hiking the trails.

Hickory Canyons Natural Area

The Lamotte sandstone, forming box canyons, was formed from the sandy beaches of a shallow ocean that existed 500 million years ago. Millions of years of erosion and uplift of the Ozark Plateau exposed the sandstone we see today. After a rain event a wet-weather waterfall can be enjoyed from the end of the 1/4 mile hiking trail on the east side of the county road. Another 1 mile trail loops through a canyon on the west side of Sprott road.
This area is botanically rich, supporting glacial relicts, species that were more common in Missouri 12,000 years ago during the last Ice Age. Since then, the climate has warmed, forcing some species to inhabit micro-climates that mimic the cool, moist conditions of glacial times. Glacial relicts at Hickory Canyons include hay-scented fern, fir clubmoss and winterberry. The area is rich in fern species with over a dozen species represented.
