“A big doubletrack climb and a super steep and fast descent.”— Melissa Wagner
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.
Follow Westside Connector to the end and take a right up the trail.
Your next mile will be all climbing, then hold on tight for the descent. The trail can be loose and eroded in spots. Watch for the sudden switch back. Use caution.
