Four-Figure Crowds Turn Out For 37th Annual Poosey Conservation Area Fall Driving Tour

The Missouri Department of Conservation hosted the 37th annual Fall Driving Tour at the Poosey Conservation Area on October 15.

Cool temperatures and light, intermittent rain early in the event failed to stop trucks, ATVs, horseback riders, golf carts, cars, and horse-drawn carriages from traversing the hilly gravel service roads.

MDC crews counted 1,079 bundled-up visitors at the tour’s start at Pike’s Lake.

The Poosey fall tour allows visitors to drive vehicles on service roads normally closed to the public.
