Description

This section is located in Washington and Iron counties and lies southwest of Potosi. The northern 18 miles of the trail was constructed in 1968, with the last six miles added in 1983.

To the north, it connects with the Ozark Trail: Courtois Section, to the south the Ozark Trail: Taum Sauk Section, and in between is the Ozark Trail: Middlefork / John Roth Memorial Section. The Trace Creek section is open to foot, bike and equestrian traffic.

A spur trail can be found near the section's midpoint that leads to the 12-mile Lake Shore Trail (Council Bluff Trail).
