This was mostly a horse trail. The conservation department has re-routed the trail we were trying to follow causing us to take a wrong(?) turn and cutting a couple of miles off of our intended route. Instead of hiking down along the Niangua River we skirted the ridge above it. Also, according to the map, at one point we had a choice of three paths back to our vehicle. Fortunately, we chose the correct one as the other two ended up being closed to allow vegetation to regrow. However, we didn’t discover that until we saw signs where the other two “old” trails merged with the “new” one. Also, there was not one point where we could find an actual paper map to follow. We happened upon a campground that showed us where we were and where we needed to go. Be prepared to do a lot of up hill!
