Hike 2- Mastodon State Historic Site- Imperial, Missouri
Last weekend we hiked the Limestone Hill Trail at Mastodon State Historic Site with both of our dogs. This was our puppy Gilbert’s first non-paved hiking path and he absolutely loved it! Since he’s a mini-Aussie, he needs a lot of exercise and entertainment.
I really enjoyed this trail with a mix of rock and smooth path with a little altitude gain for a short trail. It was a pretty wooded area with a small break towards the beginning to pass through a patch of field. Next time I plan on adding the option loop to cover a bit more distance.
I’m also excited that it’s officially beanie season and flannel season. Fall is my favorite time of year and I was getting worried we were going to skip over this year. There’s nothing quite like that slight chill in the air to make for a great hike.
