Babler Memorial State Park, located in West St Louis County in Wildwood Missouri, has four hiking trails that range in length and difficulty-ranked from 1 to 5, with 5 being the most difficult. The Dogwood Trail is 2 miles in length and a "3" in difficulty. The Woodbine Trail is 1.75 miles and a "3" in difficulty. The Virginia Day Memorial Trail is 1.5 miles and ranked a "2".

In 1934, eighty-eight acres of parkland was donated to the state park system by Jacob and Henry Babler in memory of their brother, Dr. Edmund A. Babler, a St. Louis surgeon. Eight hundred additional acres were added to those acres and Babler Memorial State Park was born. The Civilian Conservation Corps, a WPA program during the Great Depression, was used to build many of the stone structures that are still in the park, including the entrance gateway, using stone quarried from the area. Twenty-two of those structures are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
