13 woodsy escapes near St. Louis’ 255/270 circle

13 woodsy escapes near St. Louis’ 255/270 circle

We get it. You want to get out of the house and get in touch with nature, but you don’t want to get too far out of your comfort zone.

The 270/255 loop is a good guide to remind us that you don’t have to travel too far to escape to nature, even if the tradeoff might mean a little traffic noise. 

We’ve found parks and conservation areas with lakes, trails and creeks not too far from the highway. If you have a favorite escape, add them in the comments. 

We’ve listed them in clockwise order, with Little Creek Nature Area at the north end first, making our way east, south, west and north again.
