Emmenegger Nature Park – Missouri

Emmenegger Nature Park and the Possum Woods Conservation Area are located in Kirkwood, Missouri. While these areas are adjacent to Interstate 44, you can escape the city for a bit and enjoy the woods. A trail leads over a creek and away from the parking lot and joins several paved trails. As you head towards the back of the area, the trail will split and continue on.

I was lucky enough to hike this with my brother while he was in town from Iowa.

I think the best part of this trail is the part that runs along the cliffs, high above the Meramec River.

The area is a bit rocky and there are a few overlooks!

Once you arrive back at the main part, there is a small trail that will take you down to the Meramec River.

While this was a shorter hike, I really enjoyed this area. Adlai, my brother’s dog also joined us!
