Hike & Sunflower Festival

As July comes to a close, we will finish out the month with an adventure like no other. We will start our day at Ha Ha Tonka, one of Missouri’s most beautiful state parks. From dark caves, to castle ruins, the park is the perfect place for a curious 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 2 miles that gains around 200’ in elevation.  

After a morning of hiking, we will head to Golden Grove Farm’s 3rd Annual Sunflower Festival! We will spend the rest of the day snacking, listening to live music and enjoying the views! Feel free to bring a picnic lunch to munch on. Golden Grove Farm’s will also have soft drinks, cookies, trail mix and ice cream available. To top off the day, purchase sunflowers to bring home with you at just $1.00 a steam while crossing off two new adventures off your summer bucket list!
