West of Farmington in Park Hills, the St Joe State Park has 2,000 acre set aside for off-road motorcycle trails riding. The wooded trails wind through forest and through sand flats. There are about 800 acres of sand-flats, a sand-like substance of crushed limestone, which is a lead-mining remnant. The remainder of the area is wooded hillsides that are steep in some areas.

ATVs must carry a 72” high antenna-type flag and be equipped with a U.S. Forest Service-approved spark-arrested exhaust. All riders must wear helmets, and riders under 16 must be under adult supervision.

The ORV staging area is located north of the park office and has three small shelters, vault toilets, water, a change house, picnic tables and barbecue grills. Pim Lake and beach are adjacent to this area.

To reach the park from St. Louis, travel south on I-55. At Festus, take U.S. Hwy. 67 south to the Leadington/Park Hills exit. Turn right onto Hwy. 32 west and travel about 3.5 miles before turning left onto Pimville Road (just before the railroad tracks). After traveling approximately two miles, Campground 1 will be on the left. The park office, ORV riding area, lakes and day-use areas are an additional .3 mile.

Overall, St. Joe State Park is the 3rd most popular dirt bike trail of all 13 dirt biking rides in Missouri.
