Description

This section stretches from Sam A. Baker State Park to Lake Wappello before ending near Hendrickson. It will eventually connect to the Ozark Trail: Victory Section.

The trail begins at the southern entrance to Sam A. Baker State Park and runs alongside the St. Francis River south for 15 miles through woodlands and field bottoms until it reaches Lake Wappapello at Old Greenville National Historical Site. It then heads south another 15 miles through rolling oak and pine forest hill country and ends at the Black River some eight miles north of Poplar Bluff. Water is available at creeks along most of the trail.

Additional miles can be added onto this section by connecting the scenic 12-mile Mudlick Trail at Sam A. Baker or connecting to the 15-mile Wappapello Trail via a 5-mile spur trail near Highway 172.
