Thousand Hills State Park - Kirksville, MO (October, 2002)

Located just a few miles west of Kirksville (which itself is in the middle of nowhere north Missouri), Thousand Hills State Park actually very nice area and a very welcome break from the farmland and hoosiers that are so common in this part of the state.  =)

Jonathan has been in college at Truman State Univ. (in Kirksville) for 4 years now and has talked about Thousand Hills for quite some time.  I finally made the trek up there and we hit the trails hoping to put in a 10-mile day, mountain biking through the area.

As you can see the trails are single-track and very nice--fairly smooth surface and well-maintained.
