The first 1/2 mile of this loop trail follows a ridgeline, providing an easy hike. The trail then descends into Shaddox Hollow. The descent is rather steep in places. The trail winds along the creek through stands of hardwoods and native Ozark vegetation. Some interesting limestone bluffs are found along this section. After progressing up the creek, the trail begins the climb back to the trailhead. This climb can be strenuous in places.

An excellent trail. Go in to the right. About half way you will see a lake. There is a trail to it. Continue on and you will follow a nice stream. There is also a cave you can hike up to. Coming on out is a little strenuous but definitely doable.

beautiful short trail, not too busy, only saw 3 other hikers, only part that was strenuous was the incline at the end but it was well worth the effort, beautiful stream and scenic foilage

Did this trail with three small kids. The stairs were the only tricky part for them. The limestone creek as well as the various small caves on the trail were the highlights.

I started the trail around 6:00 pm ; it was the perf timing to catch great lighting and watch the sunset go down! The trees where so green it felt unreal! The trail does consist of a few up hill walks along the finishing point since I started on the left side not the right side of the starting point. The trail is very beautiful,well kept and worth the whole 1.5 mile walk! I also took some time & sat next to the cave to watch the sunset slowly go down. It was incredible. Bring your camera with you!
If you like forest scenic views this is the perfect trail!

This is a beautiful, short trail through Shaddox Hollow. I see that the rating is "moderate", but I'd call it easy. There are no very steep inclines. The trail winds through woods of pine, oak, maple, and birch, and down beneath limestone bluffs. I rested on a shaded shelf beneath a bluff, and water was seeping through the rocks above me and dripping on my head to cool me. I drank some water at the source of a natural spring. It was cold and refreshing. I saw a couple of caves. One tunnel seemed to go deep into the hillside beneath a bluff. I wanted to explore it, but it looked like it could be a bear den (though probably black bears are out of their dens this time of year). What was most amazing was seeing an enormous golden eagle, with a wing spread broader than I can spread my arms. It was majestic! I often see bald eagles in this area, but this was the first golden eagle I've seen here.
