A nice, new, flowy trail with some sweet views of the lake.

Overview

This is a fun little trail that goes on some great terrain around the peninsula containing Stockton State Park. Lots of Dogwood, not a lot of rock and some great views of the lake. Very flowy, sustainable - should be rideable shortly after rain.

The only drawback is there are two crossings of MO 215, which isn't super busy but you do need to watch out.

Need to Know

Camping is available just up the road from the primary trailhead.

Description

This is a pretty simple trail - going north (counter-clockwise around the penninsula) from the trailhead, you work through some flowy trail, then get up to a clearing where you have to look for the blue blaze on a post across the field to get going again. It's easy to follow the trail.

Nothing is technical but it's a grind as you're going up or down the whole way - budget 40 minutes at a good pace, 1 hour if you're wanting to take some pictures of the scenery. Just past the small cemetary is steep grade downhill that is a blast! The on-site Missouri parks staff is courteous and helpful and work hard to keep the trails clear of fallen trees.

Easy trail with quite a few spots to stop and enjoy the view of Stockton Lake. Also did Sortor's Bluff trail (just opened and more fun). 8.9mi — 1h 10m

Awesome trail! Good views, well marked and well kept. It's a relatively flat trail with a few climbs. Great trail for beginners or experienced. 7.2mi

Huge tree blocking entrance near the beginning of the trail. Otherwise, spectacular ride and views! 8mi

The trail is a fun fast ride. with a few rocks to either hit, or go around. There are also some dips that are great for pumping through, or grabbing a bit of air. I don't think the trail is used very much, so watch out for fallen sticks and branches. This trail is a good beginner trail, but I rode it fast and made it more challenging. Jul 14, 2014
