I'm featuring low-traffic hikes to help everyone get outside while still practicing safe social distancing. Check out my posts on Victoria Glades and Valley View Glades for options south of St. Louis.
Today I'm featuring Indian Camp Creek park in St Charles County. As of now St Charles County Parks are open. It's always a good idea to check the park website before you go in case of trail closures due to construction, flooding, etc, but especially now. Have extra water in your vehicle and in your pack -- even if the water fountains are on, using them is a bad idea.
The park has almost 10 miles of trails winding through forests and meadows and across creeks. And for fishing in those creeks and lakes, there is a temporary moratorium on the permit requirement for fishing.
Also check out the "ghost cabin" -- an approximation of an old settlers cabin.
