“A long trail that heads through the woods of Mark Twain National Forest.”— Missouri Hiker
Parking is available at Hwy CC or Lake Noblett. Drinking water is available from April 15 to October 15 at North Fork and Noblett Lake recreation areas. Water from streams and springs must be treated due to high bacterial levels. Water sources along the trail are extremely limited; carrying drinking water is recommended.
Notable sights along the trail include Noblett Lake Dam, Galloway Springs, Horton Cemetery, Blue Hole Hollow, and Steam Mill Hollow. The trail can also be accessed at Mile 13 from Hay Hollow Trailhead. For more information on the trail, click here to download the USFS brochure.
