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. =)
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.
