“The definitive loop at Wallace.”— M Swank
Take a left on the park road, up the hill and pick up Skunk Hollow Trail after a 1/3 mile or so.
Start looking for another left turn after about 1/2 mile, this time on Deer Run Trail. About a mile later, you'll see another, smaller pond. Take a left on Deer Creek Trail here. About 1.5 miles later, take another left to rejoin the Deer Run Trail for nearly a mile.
Your last left turn will be on Rocky Ford Trail, which will take you back to a park road where you can run continue straight to the parking lot where you began.
As other settlers moved into the area, more of the land was converted to agricultural uses. Through the efforts of the Cameron Sportman's Club and other citizens, the state acquired a 121-acre section of land in 1932. Named after the family who owned the land for more than a century, Wallace State Park was one of the first recreational areas in northwest Missouri. Much of the initial development was done through the Works Progress Administration (WPA) in the 1930s.
