The top portion of a 1000 foot flow trail descent to Knuckles Creek.

Overview

Biking and Hiking Only.
Dogs: No Dogs

Description

This machine built flow trail begins at NC 9252. It ascends to the Buffalo Fire Tower (the highest point in the Ozark Mountains) at UBMBTS Signpost 29, before descending down to join the Fire Tower Trail.

This trail can be used in conjunction with the Fire Tower Trail to descend about halfway to Knuckles Creek Road where it intersects with the Knucklehead Trail at Signpost 28 and then continues along a bench back to Knuckles Creek Rd (FR 1476) at Signpost 27.

The Fire Tower Loop can be completed by turning up FR 1476 at Signpost 27 and climbing up to the Knuckles Creek Trailhead and further to the Fire Tower.

Or, better yet, a larger loop can be ridden by turning down the Knucklehead Trail West at Signpost 28 and descending to Knuckles Creek (a 750 foot vertical drop from the Fire Tower), to Signpost 26, then riding down the creek back to ascend Knuckles Creek Road (FR 1476).
