The Woodland trail goes through the 1,275-acre Patterson Hollow Wild Area. It is a typical Ozark Mountains hike with rolling hills, woods and streams. Primitive camping is allowed at a designated backpacker's camp.

Terrible. It was the worst hike I ever had, the hike from hell. Expect to wander through thick brush, a lot of spiders, no clear path at all. The best part- chiggers all over our bodies, in our shoes, and then infesting our car.

Very poorly maintained- lots of climbing over fallen trees. Blue markers were easy to spot at the beginning but grew further and further apart. All of the creek beds are bone dry.

Gorgeous in the spring with a sea of dogwoods in bloom. Very quiet and pristine. This trail goes up and down several hills with rocky terrain. No man-made structures or signs, just blue trail tags. Trail crosses several dry creek beds that might be a challenge in the rainy season. The hilly parts of the trail are pretty washed out so it was a bit like climbing the hill in a ditch. We had to climb over a few fallen trees but that also meant there was an occasional spot to rest and enjoy the birdsong.

Great trail. We notice the blue marks were hard to find on the way back and few signs need to be replace. It would be nice if there was more maps on the trail.

Simple trail in the Ozark hills. I didn't camp at the backpacker's camp but it was a nice setting. This trail does not appear to be heavily used so you will probably have some nice solitude.
