Lick Log Hollow Trail is a 1.2 mile lightly trafficked loop trail located near Eminence, MO that features a river and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, nature trips, and birding and is accessible year-round. Dogs are also able to use this trail but must be kept on leash.

Lick Log Hollow trails is rugged 1.3 mile loop featuring Ozark hill country with dolomite glades, a fen, a small shut-in and Oak-pine forest.
This hike is better billed as an interpretive nature walk than as a hike. My first disappointment was it was a gravel trail, which always disappoints. The trail should be hiked clockwise as the interpretive markers are best viewed from that direction. It has a nice little waterfall midway on the hike, but even that is mitigated because of the boardwalk overlook. Not to be to negative. OK to do in the area, but many more better hiking options in the area.
Hiked this in February. Very easy hike with a variety of habitat types. Pleasant but not spectacular. Used a 2001 trail guide borrowed from a friend. No trail maps at trail head. Sorry that 2 of my posted photos are sideways: they displayed in the correct orientation while uploading, but when they finished uploading they were rotated.
