Scout Families enjoyed hiking the Rock Quarry Trail at Rockwoods Reservation, a 1,843 acre state forest and wildlife conservation area. The Rock Quarry Trail is 2.2 miles, moderately rugged and has a overall elevation difference of about 250 feet.
Rockwoods Reservation was established in 1938, one year after the Missouri Department of Conservation was created, making it one of Missouri's oldest conservation properties. Rockwoods has a history of extensive rock quarrying and most of the forest was previously clear cut to provide firewood for the quarry's eleven kilns.
