creating intentional space to b r e a t h e. For now this looks like Sunday afternoons, the RAV, a short practical list, and an outdoor dwelling through which to trek…
Parkville Nature Sanctuary (Parkville, MO) is beginner hiking friendly & provides 3 trails with distinct characteristics
The trail* provided a much needed incline. The incline is gradual and is a blend of hillside and stairs made from rail ties. The path is narrow which is helpful for peeps like me that tend to veer unintentionally off the path. I will return to see what the space looks like as autumn progresses (so far it has been a very seamless transition from summer to autumn here)
Note: The White Tail Trail provides the most rigorous hike, yet I (a novice) would rate it only a slightly moderate difficulty. The trails while accessible and family friendly are far from boring. I saw a family of deer on my trek, and heard lots of interesting woodsy sounds. There is a stream that runs along another trail, and still another trail (while short) leads to a small waterfall.
