Located on the Missouri River a couple of miles north of Kansas City, the town of Weston credits its early success to tobacco growing and trade. Five tobacco barns remain in Weston Bend State Park to interpret the important role this industry once played here.
A scenic overlook provides visitors with a grand view of the Missouri River and Fort Leavenworth. A hiking trail wanders through the woods and along the bluff's edge, providing magnificent views of the river. Hikers and bicyclists enjoy a three-mile paved loop trail through a hilly wooded area.
