City location names: Wildwood or Glencoe. This area is approximately 1800 acres of wooded hillsides and is a Missouri Department of Conservation area. There are six designated hiking trails ranging in length from 0.1 miles to 3.6 miles. Rockwoods Reservation harbors a rich diversity of plant and animal life as well as springs, caves, and rock formations. Cool, moist, north facing ravines and lush creek bottoms contrast with the nearby arid, rocky ridge tops, and south slopes. The terrain is reminiscent of the Ozark hills and, indeed, many plants and animals found in hill country are also found here. Interpretive signs throughout the area point out special features or demonstration areas, such as butterfly gardening, bird feeding, prairie habitat, mining, and quarrying and the history of lime kilns.. The Conservation Education Center contains exhibits and information about the forest, fish, and wildlife resources of Missouri. Programs are available by advance registration for school field trips and other organized groups.
