Nice trail! First time hiking this area and thought the trail was marked well and clear enough to take the kids on. Will definitely be back.

It’s close to home and a nice walk in the woods. No features of particular interest, but it’s much better than walking at a park in town!

First two miles of the trails were great, but was not able to continue due to the lack of trail markers. The switch backs we were suppose to encounter were not visible from any point, and poor signage led to a bad experience.

I found this trail while visiting Poplar Bluff. It is a great trail to run, not too steep, not too flat. It could benefit from some maintenance. With more maintenance it would definitely improve it as a mountain bike trail as well. Overall I really enjoyed the trail and will definitely run or ride it again.

For a beginner this trail is perfect. It provides enough technical aspects to be interesting but not overwhelming. This is the first time I've actually mountain biked so I wasn't sure what to expect. There are plenty of large rocks, sticks, roots and stumps in and on the edge of the trail that you have to maneuver around and watch out for. It's pretty narrow but that could be the norm for mountain bike trails. I'm very happy to have this trail available. It's great.

This is a very easy, nice, well marked trail accessed from the north trail head; off Highway 67. You can make this a loop by running the road back or crossing the road and connecting to the northeast section of the trail. Perfect for walking, trail running, mountain biking or hiking. All 20+ miles of this trail are accessible from the north or south trail head.

One of my favorite sections of the OT!! It doesn't get a lot of foot traffic, so it maybe a little faint in areas, but a really beautiful hike! If it works out, the scenic overlook of the 11 point at the boom hole would be an awesome place to camp for a small group!!!

Smooth walk from McCormack Lake dam to a bluff with a great view of the 11 point river. Nice picnic table to have a seat and relax up there as well. Only about 2 miles until the views!

Must add that the waypoint that the app shows is no where even close. The trailhead is actually south on highway 19 out of Winona. You will drive 10-15 miles until turning on the county road.

Hiked from McCormack to first bluff view. about 1.8 miles in. Was amazing. went to check out before overnighter at end of the month. Can't wait.

This totally wild country! Loved it. Going back this weekend to canoe and trout fish. Very isolated with low traffic.
