A sweet new switchback descent as an option for the last portion of the Orange Trail.

Multi-use trail open to bikes, horses and hikers. Bikers must yield to horses and hikers.
Features: -none-

Description

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 footbridge 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 - this is the start of the Orange 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.

You'll encounter the split for this trail around a mile in as you start your descent. There is a teepee of sticks a the Y and you'll keep to the right. No worries if you take a wrong turn as the trail will rejoin and spit you out at the same spot on the Westside Connector.
