Lick Creek Trail

Missouri Dept. of Natural Resources

Location:
Ralls County

News, Updates, & Warnings:
Open to hunters during hunting seasons so please use caution.

Directions:
From Hannibal, take Hwy 61 south to Hwy A in New London, turn west.  Follow Hwy A until it dead ends onto Hwy J, turn south.  Continue south on Hwy J past the Frank Russell Campground for a few more miles to the Lick Creek Trailhead Access Road on the left, across from the Ray Behrens Campground.

Miles of Trails:
10.5 miles
8 mile linear plus a 2.5 mile loop.

Equestrian Camping:
Yes, at the nearby Frank Russel Campground.

Trail Notes:
Rocky steep hills, downfall and creek crossings to negotiate.  The trail corridor is well maintained and easy to follow.  If the lake is at a high level, parts of the trail will flood.  Because of the flooding, the trail can get quite boggy in the wet weather season after the lake level has receded, so it would be a good idea to call ahead and check on the trail conditions.  Parts of the trail run along the area boundary so be sure not to stray off onto private property.

Other Trail Users:
Hikers, mountain bike riders, and hunters.
