Weldon Spring Conservation Area

See Photo Location

This area provides more than 7,000 acres of natural beauty and outdoor recreation in the heart of scenic Missouri wine county. 

The rugged Lewis and Clark Trails reward hikers with impressive overlooks to the Missouri River. The 10-mile Lost Valley Trail gives both hikers and cyclists a chance to stretch their legs. The area also offers access to the Katy Trail. All the way, there are plenty of birds and wildlife to see with binoculars and capture with a camera. 

A boat ramp provides access to the Missouri River and a number of ponds make for other great fishing opportunities. The site is also home to the Weldon Spring Hollow Natural Area. The Natural Area designation identifies a place that exemplifies pristine natural features of Missouri. Weldon Spring Conservation Area is accessible from several parking areas along Route 94, south of Route 40/61.
