'Outsider art,' meaning works created outside the bounds of traditional culture, has blossomed in tiny Lucas. Even the public restroom at Bowl Plaza is a work of true genius (it's shaped like a toilet bowl!).
Lucas is best reached via the Post Rock Scenic Byway, a picturesque 18-mile jaunt past Wilson Lake starting at I-70 exit 206. The lake is home to the 23-mile Switchgrass Mountain Bike Trail, the only Epic-rated singletrack trail between the Ozarks and the Rockies.
