Just finished the full trail - actually is about 13.5 miles total. This is a nice trail, but rough! No rain in the area has dried up most of the water sources, especially if you start at Johnson Shut Ins - no water for approx 10 miles, pack smart! Otherwise a wonderful and unforgettable trail!

Nice walk through Ozarks rolling hills!

Gorgeous Place, well worth the drive to it.

Not an easygoing trail. More tics than I have ever seen.

this is a nice small trail. it's very wooded and the rock formations is very cool and easy to climb around on. be sure to WEAR PANTS, SHOES, TALL SOCKS and LOTS of BUG SPRAY with DEET. we had TON of tiny seed ticks all over our our ankles multiple times throughout the trail that we had to stop and brush off with a stick. you will also run into a bridge after you make the loop, that is not part of the trail. there were also a ton of spider webs across the trail so just be aware we kept a stick with us to sweep them out of our path.

We did part of this trail last Fall. it was beautiful. It took a couple hours to do it. I would love to hike the entire thing sometime.

Trail was in great shape and well marked. Took us about 5 hours and 45 mins to complete it.
