Hinkson Creek Trail Description

Hinkson Creek Trail offers a beautiful, natural escape as it curves around southern and eastern Columbia. The crushed limestone trail stretches just over 4 miles, partly along the southern end of the University of Missouri campus.

The trail begins at a connection to the MKT Nature and Fitness Trail that, in turn, connects to the renowned Katy Trail State Park, which nearly traverses the state of Missouri.

Highlights of Hinkson Creek Trail include passage through Capen Park and Grindstone Nature Area, which are especially scenic, including two bridges designed with a railroad aesthetic.

On its northern end, the trail finishes in Stephens Lake Park, which offers lots of recreational amenities, including open playing fields, spraygrounds, gardens, and a beach. Picnic shelters and restrooms are also available in the park.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available in Capen Park (1600 Capen Park Dr.), Grindstone Nature Area (2011 Old 63 South), and Stephens Lake Park (2001 E. Broadway).
