Decent hiking trails + dog park
I've hiked the entire trail system at Broemmelsiek Park. It is a mixture of wooded and developing prairie sections. Overall, the trails are very nice. There is a nice dog park area separate of the hiking areas. There is also an astronomy viewing area on the north side of the park. We recently watched a meteor shower there at night.

Loved it! Already planning to return!
We stayed at a basic camp tent site (#47) just a few feet away from Pickle Creek on our mid-week visit in August. Most kids were back in school so the mid-week visit so there were few families. Everywhere was very nice and quiet. We only stayed for one night but hiked Pickle Creek Natural Area (some miles east of the park) and hiked the Pickle Creek Trail on our second day. We wished that we would have stayed 2-3 nights. But this was sort of a test run. We'll definitely come back to hike more...

Nice facility, so-so food
We had lunch at Audubon's. The facility is nice and modern. The service was OK but we found the food only so-so.

Short and simple but fantastic walking trail
The hiking trail at Pickle Springs Natural Area is about 2 miles long. Although fairly short, the hike is referred to as the "Trail Through Time" which takes you through interesting granite rock formations and along the meandering Pickle Creek. The area was designated a National Natural Landmark in 1974. Many consider this one of Missouri's most beautiful hikes.

Per their website (2015): "From the junction of Highways 32 and W in Farmington, travel east on Highway 32 for 5 miles, then turn right (east) on Highway AA. Follow Highway AA east for 1.7 miles to Dorlac Road (gravel). Turn left (north) onto Dorlac Road and drive 0.4 mile to the parking lot on the right (east) side. Because of the fragility of the sandstone formations and the rare plants that grow here visitors are strongly encouraged to stay on the excellent Trail Through Time hiking trail....

I just returned yesterday from a camping & hiking visit to Hawn State Park & Pickle Springs Natural Area here in Missouri. We camped at the quiet, walk-in camping site #47 at Hawn State Park. Our tent was just a few feet from the trickling sounds of Pickle Creek. I'll write a review later about the park which is excellent. On our first day, we hiked in Pickle Springs Natural Area which is fantastic. More to come.... - feeling happy

The Travel Penguin I was also in the area (Sainte Genevieve) recently but didn't have a chance to visit the parks. I hear that they are a "must-do" so I hope to get... Show more 6 days ago
