The Conservation Department purchased this scenic, mostly wooded 73-acre tract, located within the city limits of Hannibal, from Mrs. H.J. Freiling in 1979.
The area was named after Dr. Julian Steyermark, the noted botanist who wrote "Flora of Missouri," the recognized guide of Missouri botanists and wildflower lovers.
The area provides an excellent example of woodlands typically found in the "River Hills" bordering the west bank of the Mississippi River.
The rich woodlands are dominated by mature sugar maple, basswood, blue ash, black walnut, Kentucky coffee-tree, northern red oak, and white oak trees. The understory contains a wide variety of small trees and shrubs, such as paw paw, bladdernut, and ironwood. The forest floor is rich with wildflowers and ferns.
The area offers excellent opportunities for nature study, wildlife viewing and hiking. Because Steyermark Woods Conservation Area is located within the city limits of Hannibal, hunting is prohibited.
Visitors to the area can park at the pull-off along County Road 410.   Because Steyermark Woods Conservation Area is located within the city limits of Hannibal, only archery hunting is permitted.
