    A quiet hike or bike ride along the Little Femme Osage Creek.

    This well-marked trail in the Weldon Spring Conservation Area is open to hikers and bikers. Bikers will find that the loop is easier in the clockwise direction.

    Look forward to wildflowers, creekside scenes, and hilly terrain.

    Excellent Trail For Birding!

    Excellent location for birding and the trails are well maintained. In the spring you can see birds migrating through the Midwest that you probably will not see in your backyard. This area must be a migration corridor. Watch out for the bikers though! Some of them fly down those hills.
