Q: Is there a certain time it opens? -Guest
A: LV is managed by the MO Dept of Conservation and is open year round. During managed hunt season, it is still accessible as hunters are restricted from a certain distance of the trail but riding later in the morning during hunt season is probably wise. Also, trails are open every night but not after 11pm. Lower trailhead is a gravel lot approx. 6 miles from Hwy 40/61 & 94 intersection but more popular is "the Mound" parking lot, adjacent to the Weldon Spring Interpretive Center, only a couple miles from the Hwy 40/61/94 intersection and accessible via the Hamburg Trail before dropping in to LV. Mound parking is nice for night rides because of the lighting.
