This trail traverses 24 miles of scenic Ozark countryside starting at the site of a Civilian Conservation Corps camp of 1937 and winding through timbered stands and fields. The hiking, mountain biking, and horseback riding offer one a pleasant measure of solitude and quiet. Two small primitive campgrounds are available for use.
Bicycling Magazine called it 24 miles of Missouri’s finest single track, the best single track East of the Rockies and West of the Appalachians. That about sums it up. Some long climbs, some long downhills. Everywhere is just beautiful, especially in the fall. Some of the trail is super rocky, so hang on. Never a dull moment. Everything you could want and more. 3 and 1/2 hours is a good time to ride. That’s just pedaling time. Most humans need a break.
Start at either Brazil Creek or Berryman camps.
