12.75 mile loop, plus 10 miles of connector trails to the Lake Wappapello Section of the Ozark Trail

Trail Notes:
This trail also connects down the line with University Forest Conservation Area trails.  There is close to 100 miles of riding accessible just from this trail’s trailhead.  Normally the trail is well marked, there is downfall to negotiate, creek crossings, and a few hills to climb.  A fun ride but not necessarily rugged.  There are a few tall overlooks above the lake so make sure to stay back from the ledge.  This trail is in a storm prone section of the state, which can make the trail impassable due to downed trees, debris, or flooding, so be sure and call ahead if you are coming very far, to check out the trail conditions.

Other Trail Users:
Hikers & mountain bike riders.
