Why You Should Visit
Zahorsky Woods offers great opportunities to get outside and learn about the geology of Missouri. A marked hiking trail and map will help you identify key points of interest at the site. Located in Crawford County and encompassing 56 acres, trails at the site wind through river bottom lowland to a high, dry and stony southern-facing glade. In the northeast corner of the preserve, a steep 100-foot dolomite bluff overlooks the Meramec River.
Easy hiking over marked paths. Beware of poison ivy.
