Description

One of the more beginner friendly trails at Busiek State Forest.

Busiek Rd is right off Hwy 65 between Springfield and Branson. Follow Busiek Rd down the hill. Follow to the right and under the bridge until you reach the dead end - which is also the parking area. Head across the foot bridge to the left of the parking lot - towards the firing range . The trailhead will be on your right.

Make your way down the doubletrack. You'll encounter two singletrack trails on the right in the first 0.1 mile. These take you to the creek - ignore them.

At 0.5 miles keep left at the fork.

At 1.3 you'll come to a creek crossing. The trail is across the creek to your right. It can be hard to see. The trail trail that appears to go straight is closed.

Follow the switchback up for a fairly easy climb. Some sections will be wet/muddy year round. Please be kind to the trail and walk around muddy sections.

This descent is fast and can be loose, but is very fun. Use caution.
