West of Farmington, the 8,200 acre St Joe State Park has 15 miles of wooded trails shared by hikers, mountain bikers and equestrians. Some of the trails are quite rocky, while others are good earthen trails. Some portions of the trails follow along small streams. Red Trail is a 7.5-mile loop trail that originates and ends at Pimville Road. 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, lakes and day-use areas are an additional .3 mile.

Overall, St Joe State Park is the 18th most popular hiking trail of all 21 hikes in Missouri.
