A typical Ozarks hike through the woods. Colorful wildflowers were everywhere. Several old foundations are along the trail. Passed some morel hunters who had a mesh bag full.

If you get "lost" don't worry all trails connect together, if you're willing to hike the eleven miles. Suggest to start early if you want to make the full hike. Some sections are overgrown and other sections are very open and pleasant. The highlight of the whole trail is the natural bridge (more of a natural tunnel)

The redbird section a short section that connects other sections. It follows a ridgeline. Overall the Kaintuck trail is simple and easy, does have a couple of nice highlights with springs and natural tunnel.
