Mid-Missouri is a fantastic place to hit the trails. Whether you’re still a beginner, just starting to learn about the available terrain, or an experienced hiker who knows the secret spots to find the best views, one thing is certain: the right equipment is key.

We asked the local experts at the Alpine Shop and experienced adventurer Maggie Lenox to help us showcase the best available gear to make sure you safely enjoy the scenery in and around Columbia. So grab that sunscreen and get outside!
