Where are some good places to go backpacking in Kansas/Missouri?

I've been backpacking many times. Mostly in Colorado. My girlfriend, however, has never been. We are planning a trip for this fall, but don't know of any places around here. We're from Kansas City and we do not want to travel to far. Otherwise, we'd be going in Colorado. I've heard the Ozarks have some very nice trails, so we might have to end up going there. Is there anywhere closer than that? Or is that going to be our best bet? Thanks....

    It seems as if you are in a rock and hard place. I think she is trying to test your love for her. I really do think so. Sometimes women will let you run after them to prove your love, but you are the one who should know her best since you both spent two years together. Read here https://tr.im/AKiLB

    On the other hand, she may have already started a relationship with someone else and don’t want you to know. Is that an option? There is also a possibility that she just needs time to sort out her life. Apparently, you may not have reassured her that you have the same goals as she does in the past two years and that would be your task to prove to her that you want the best for her. So you don’t need to be too clingy.

    She does not want that. She is seeking her independence from you and so she needs a little time. I would suggest giving her about 30 more days and then if no response write her a short note telling her how you feel about her without appearing desperate and let her know that you would love to talk – just talk so you can understand how she is really feeling. If you get an answer, that is your first indication that there is still some interest. Let her know that you would like to keep in contact with you whatever she decides. This will let her know that you care about her well being.

    The city has many opportunities for your backpacking tour. If you don’t mind dirt roads, I’ll suggest you guys to try the Arikaree Breaks. It’s the most breathtaking hiking trail I’ve ever been to. Well, it’s not exactly a hiking site. But it’s a great to hike. BTW, I’m a newbie now.

    If you guys are one of those experienced hardcore hikers, why not try the American Discovery Trail? I guess it would be a great trail to prove something to yourself or someone else. Yet safety comes first during your trip.
