Walking trails, nature trails and fishing ponds


Missouri Western’s scenic 723-acre campus includes approximately 200 acres of wooded natural habitat along a small stream named Otoe Creek. This preserve, called the Otoe Creek Nature Area, has nature trails and a small outdoor amphitheater. The campus also maintains nine man-made ponds of varying sizes and depths, and watershed areas to provide a diverse collection of aquatic wildlife experiences. Fishing in Everyday Pond, off of Faraon Street, on James McCarthy Drive, is allowed with a valid Missouri fishing license. The wood chip walking trail is 1.9 miles long and begins behind Baker Family Fitness Center. The asphalt walking trail begins in Parking Lot H and continues along James McCarthy Drive. It encircles Everyday Pond and meets ADA regulations. There are two accessible parking spaces available at the pond parking lot.

Sidewalk System


Whether walking around or through campus, you are in for some spectacular views. Sculptures adorn the main campus as the Glenn E. Marion Memorial Clock Tower serenades you. Be sure to visit campus in the spring when the trees are in full, colorful bloom. It’s a sight to be seen. We also recommend a stroll during the autumn months when our trees are a magnificent display of rich color. The distance around campus on the perimeter sidewalk is 1.1 miles.
