Thousand Hills Trails natural surface and route through hilly, rugged wooded terrain make it popular with mountain bikers. The trail passes through and along savanna restoration units and at times along Forest Lake. The trip can be shortened or lengthened by accessing white connector 1 (.70 mile) and white connector 2 (1 mile).

Backpacked 5 miles into the remote site, backpacked out this morning. gorgeous trail long the lake. The east half is prettiest if you're only doing one part. The remote sites is beautiful. filtered water out if the pond, there's a cool cave at that site.

Trail was not maintained at all. Backcountry campsite was nice. Typical Missouri trail. Lots of weeds and trees. Not too many scenic areas. Will not be coming back

Super rainy the entire way, but couldn't have picked a better place to have my first solo overnight trip!
