Rolla is "in the middle of everywhere", and there are many state parks, recreation, conservation and wilderness areas close by. On this page, we are listing our favorite hikes in Missouri that can be done as day trips. They range from one mile strolls we did with our young children, to ten mile hikes. On the way, you can explore springs, rivers, cliffs, caves, natural tunnels, forests and glades. For those who want to venture further afield, we have recently added a page with our favorite day hikes and backpacks in Arkansas.
