No hunting allowed here except special managed hunts.
From St. Louis , takeI-55 south to Hwy 67. Go south on Hwy 67 about to the park‘s entrance, which is on the left. Follow the park road through the gate and go straight ahead. The right fork goes tothe park office. Follow the road down a very steep, curvy hill and cross the low water bridge. Use caution as this crossing is prone to flash–flooding and impassable during periods ofheavy rain. Continue on the road to the first parking area on the left.
Miles of Trails:
11 mile double loop.
The trail starts by the sign, not down the service road, as you might first think. The trail is marked with round yellow arrow markers. The trail corridor is easy to follow. There are a lot of hills, downfall, rocks, and a few creeks to cross. The trailhead has registration cards. Please use them for safety reasons and also so they know how many equestrians are using the trail.
