Cedar River Trail is primarily a trail for horseback riders, but it is also open to mountain bikers and hikers. The terrain is typical Ozark hill country covered in oak/hickory vegetation. It crosses the Gasconade river, a favorite float stream in Missouri.

The trailhead on the app isn’t a trailhead per se but rather a wide spot on a dirt road. You’ll have to park on the edge of the road. The trail is lightly travelled and the distance to the Gasconade River is 2.3 miles. If the river is lower you could probably cross it but we turned around. This was a nice trail to spend time on during a beautiful fall day.
