Mat had a chance to get a hike in on a business trip in August. He hiked 5+ miles at Salt Lick Trails Nature Reserve which is on the Illinois side of the river about 30 minutes south of St. Louis. He found it was a good day hike with lots of inclines and good views. It would make a good travel stop hike with a large parking area for any size rig. Check it out and tell us what you think!
