Have information regarding Shut In's State Park in SE Missouri?

Hi Everyone!   Moved back here from OR and trying to get use to the humidity.  I booked a weekend in the fall down in SE Mo to do day trips.  Any words of wisdom for this area?   Next year ready to go on a 1-2 backpack   Sadly out of shape( struggling with the damn humidity)  I would prefer to hike fall, winter, spring. 

thank you

Hi @EcoNOTego - Thanks for reaching out!

Southeast Missouri has a lot of neat areas to roam around, even though they are much less talked about that some of the amazing hiking spots over in the PNW! It has been some years since I was over that way and I have never been to Shut In's SP specifically, but here are some suggestions for the SE Missouri area:

If you're keen to share, it would be great to hear where you end up hiking. Fingers are crossed for you that the cooling temperatures of September make for some nice days out on the trail!
