Review: A fun track that has a little bit of everything. Nothing gets too technical though. There seems to be endless options on how to ride this trail.

Review: We just completed this trail today. The Garmin recorded almost 11 miles and we rode almost everything. . .so the 16 mile listing may be deceiving. We really enjoyed the trail. It had fast flowing sections, some mild sustained uphill climbs, some fun rock gardens, and a lot of beautiful scenery. If you have ridden many Ozark trails you know that flint rocks, both loose and fixed, can be relentless and this trail is no exception. There are some areas that had long runs of flint rock gardens that challenged. The biggest challenge for us today was the amount of leaves on the trail. The last few weeks have seen few riders due to hunting season so there were times that even finding the line of the trail was difficult. We started yellow and rode east to the end, looped back to the west and finished with the combination of green, blue, yellow. There was really not anything un-ridable for us although we do ride frequently and on all sorts of terrain. I would not rate anything here more than a medium blue for difficulty.

Review: fairly technical and fairly fast. pretty rocky and a few roots. some turns are very sudden and their sidewalls aren't built up enough. i went flying off of the track at 20 miles per hour and hit a tree on one of the turns.

Review: This is an outstanding singletrack trail, well marked, and very well-maintained. It has a mixture of rock gardens, dirt and rooty sections, some gravel, grassy vistas, and lots of switchbacks, small to moderate climbs, and water crossings. The longer yellow section (approx 12 miles) is a super workout with quickly changing terrain. The blue and green sections are just as exciting to ride but are shorter in length. Even if one section may be too muddy to ride after a rain, there is enough elevation and rocky terrain in the other sections to still ride. Wildlife is everywhere, and the Truman Lake is visible from some parts of the trail. There is a covered picnic area and parking lot at the trailhead. I found it to be a top notch trail.

Review: Great trail for all skill levels. Discovered this trail in the summer of '15 and rode it with a relatively new rider. Something here for everyone. About 1.5 hours north of Springfield.

Review: I've raced here twice and really enjoyed these trails immensely. And they keep on growing. They are fast but still keep you honest, barrel too fast into a turn not paying attention to the rocks and you'll slip out. Having a tubeless setup is almost a must because these trails eat up tires and tubes.

Review: This is a fun flowing trail system that never gets old. These trails can handle quite a bit of rain and are very well maintained. There is also a great bike shop nearby if any of the ozark rocks get ya.

Review: Seemed to be a nice trail. It was worth the 1.5 hour drive to get there. I Completed the Green, Blue, and Yellow trails. The GPS totaled it all at 16.48 miles. The only complaints were a lot of overgrown trail markers and what seemed to be a rock garden from the pits of Satan's bowels. The rock gardens were not difficult, they just seemed to never end.
