This is all road riding. The main hazard you would have to watch for is vehicles in the summer. This is a very crowded place in the heat of the summer. They’ll run you over. The riding here in summer would be very hot because most of it is in the sun. There are some long steep hills. Cave Road is hilly and paved with chip-n-seal asphalt, so it could be slippery. DO NOT ride on the Ozark Trail in this area, it is NOT open to horses here. Horses are also prohibited in the camping and picnic areas.
Other Trail Users:
Hikers, hunters, large amount of families vacationing in the summer.
