No better way to celebrate Cinco de Mayo than a morning hike and visit to winery named Casa de Loco! On top of that, it does not get any better than Springtime in the Ozarks. The water is flowing, the colors are out strutting their stuff and the sounds of nature are as loud as can be. We will start our day at Ha Ha Tonka, one of Missouri's most beautiful State Parks. From dark caves, to castle ruins perched on a cliff, the park is the perfect place for the adventurous soul. Ha Ha Tonka brings together beautiful landscapes, geological wonderland, and history through its scattered oaks, prairie grasses, sinkholes, a natural bridge, a spring, and the ruins of the turn-of-the-century stone castle. Our hike will be a simple 4 miles that gains around 200’ in elevation.
After a hike that explores the many features of the park, we will visit Casa de Loco Winery and taste some awesome local wine while we celebrate a great day on the trails. This winery is the perfect way to end out day outside. Their magnificent patio is the perfect place to see even more of the beautiful Ozarks.
