Here's a great place to take visitors of St Louis to. At Lone Elk Park, you'll get to drive into an enclosed refuge for wildlife in the area. You can see different bird species, bison, deer, elk, as well as other furry animals all roaming loose. Don't worry - it's safe. Relaxing place to have a picnic as well. Stop by the information center and you might be lucky enough to catch demonstrations hosted by the park services. You can make a day outing out of it by hiking or biking through the challenging Chubb trail nearby. You can hike or bike this 7 mile long trail (one-way) and enjoy one of the most challenging trails in the area.
