The Kansas City Mountain range is excellent and you should find several challenging trails there.

If you consider the southeastern tip of Nebraska to be "around" KC, there's this place (http://www.ngpc.state.ne.us/parks/guides/parksearch/showpark.asp?Area_No=91).

I've camped at Indian Cave State Park, but I never knew they had 22 miles of hiking trails... and mountain biking.. holy crap... sounds like that would really be worth the drive..

Thanks man...

Talk about incongruity. MOhillbilly and a giggle.



Anyway, as for hiking. How far are you willing to drive? We're about 3 hours south of you, and we've got tons of hiking around here. Devil's Den, Hobbs Creek, Hickory Branch, Lake Leatherwood, Pea Ridge are all places you could google. Just add Arkansas and hike or trail to any of those, and you should get directions and a description.

I always thought hiking was for guys who don't have golf clubs.

Probably. I don't have golf clubs, and I don't really want them. I prefer to spend my outdoor time in nature, and I know that if I took up golf I'd probably get hooked and spend all my time on a golf course instead.

I golf quite a bit... but sometimes I just have to get the hell away from civilization for a while.

Besides... golfing around here can get expensive...

Hike down Troost from around 31st St. to 47th St. around 2am.
That's challenging.

Actually, You could go to Ft. Osage about 25 miles east of KC in Buckner, MO, or go to Lewis & Clark Overlook Park up by Weston, MO.

My yard is a great place to hike and I'll throw in a mower for you to push around.
