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.

nice hike.

Rick and spider infested!!! Just a normal covered Ozark trail, nothing special to see. About 4 of the 5.3 miles are will kept but 1.5 are pretty rough if your are traveling on foot. When we got to our car we could see the hundreds if not thousands of seed ticks on my dog and myself!! I spent most of the time on the trail dodging spider webs.

Did full loop. east loop/orange, was generally flat, brushy, little to see. The west loop/yellow, had older forest, more open, more rolling topography, a little more scenic. Neither loop had a special scenic area. Overall, very ordinary. Trail was laid out well.

checked sign-in roster, the month of October had 29 people total registered for the hike - most were in groups of two. Low traffic.

Ground was horse trampled. The trail was listed as being available for bikes and hiking. Ticks were rampant. I'd suggest that only horse rider or hiker with hefty boots and long pants only play here.

If you like primitive trails, this place is a winner. A mix of old logging roads, double track and single track. Some nettle covered trails through pines but mostly hardwood trees over steep banked hollows and rough creek crossings. Lots of trail markings but sometimes (red trail) still a challenge to find your way. Not fast and flowy, these intermediate to difficult trails are best suited to phat tires that can grind over the straight up climbs. Lots and lots of trails to explore: red trail, blue trail, yellow trail, white trails. Probably best in fall and winter when vegetation is thinner.
