This section was named after the old Victory School and incorporates a portion of the Victory Horse trails between Ellsinore and Hendrickson. The trail follows through heavy oak forests punctuated with small meadows. It can be accessed at Brush Arbor trailhead (Walton Chapel on the map) and Upalika Pond trailhead in the center of the section, plus the Wrangler trailhead to the east. Water is available near all trailheads except Wrangler, and in creeks along the trail. A three-mile gap separates this section from the Wappapello section. This section is maintained by the Ozark Trails Club with other local volunteers. Contact Fred Stenger for more information.

The trail was well marked, but pretty grown up. We didn't see anyone else there- except for a rabbit & a deer. Be sure & use bug spray because there are ticks, especially in the areas that really grown up with weeds. Overall, a nice hike through the woods.

this is a good trail after I got past the mile 1/2 where the logger have been working. It is a good moderit trail for beginners or novist as well.
