    Charles Mcdonald reviewed Berryman Trail

    over 6 years ago

    I hiked this trail as a 2 day backpacking trip. I hiked 16 from berryman to brazil creek, then 8 from brazil back to berryman. All around a nice trail, great trail to put your face in and go. A little lacking in features, but a nice long meandering walk through the woods. Suprisingly few hills, with lots of switchbacks none of them were overly demanding. Equestrian use is obvious in several places, and the trail has been damadged in a few places, but reroutes around this has improved conditions. This trail looks to be great for mountain biking.

    Labarque creek trail is a great short hike. There is a lot of stuff to see if you explore a little. Many nice small bluffs, water falls and rock formations. Very pretty area.

    Charles Mcdonald reviewed The Ozark Trail: Marble Creek Section

    over 6 years ago

    This is a nice walk through the woods, with a few obscured views of the hills nearby. It may have been better in the spring when some of the creek beds were flowing. This hike definitely has a remote feel to it. Like most of the OT it has rocky, rough terrain. The nearby marble creek campgrounds are a good place to camp. The crane lake trail connects to this section of the Ozark Trail at the opposite end from the marble creek campground.

    Nice trail. Beautiful creek and natural bridge. look for a large stack of rocks in the middle of the creek. Great summer water hole for a family.

    Good walk through the woods, but it was lacking in comparison to the pickle creek and whispering pines trails. It is a nice walk through the woods though.

    Charles Mcdonald reviewed Meramec State Park Campground

    over 6 years ago

    Meramec State park has every camping option from numerous backpacking sites to full cabins, electric sites-every camping option here. A good variety of trails to hike too. river view and bluff trails are two good short scenic trails, and the wilderness trail offers a 10 mile option for the hiker or backpackers. Great visitors center, with the short natural wonders trail nearby. They also rent canoes and rafts for floating the meramec nearby.

    Charles Mcdonald reviewed Johnson's Shut-Ins State Park Trail

    over 6 years ago

    Johnson shut-ins actually has 3 trails. The Ozark trail goes through a large section of the park as well. The Scour trail is an amazing place to hike through, read about the damn breach that left this 3 mile long 100 yard wide 15ft deep scar on the earth. The shut-ins trail is also well worth the walk at 2 miles. Goggins trail (10 miles) is a good long walk through the wooded areas of the park. there is a small spur that leads to the Ozark trail and a nice view where the spur connects with the goggins trail. There are many many different options here for hikes of 15 miles or more, or hikes of 2 miles or less-Easy to Difficult terrain as well. Excellent park, busy in the summer months, but well worth a visit.

    Charles Mcdonald reviewed Green Rock Trail

    over 6 years ago

    This trail has been lengthened by approximately 4.5 miles. If you like long walks through the woods, this is a great trail. Non of the hills were overly steep, and were well graded, with plenty of switchbacks. This trail recieves a moderate rating in difficulty as none of the terrain was overly difficult, but the length of this trail makes it more difficult than moderate. This trail would make a great bike ride. GORC was actually there working on the trail when I hiked this.
