Summary:
Terrible.....Rode this last sunday and had nothing but problems there. Multiple trees down and overgrowth everywhere. Trails poorly marked which was made worse by leaf litter that obliterated the underlying trail. Managed to get some fallen branches wrapped up in my cassette which bent two of the cogs slightly. Complete waste of time. Worst trail I have ridden yet.

Recommended Route:
The quickest direction away from this so called "trail."

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Fort Scott KS Gunn trail or head down to Bentonville.

Summary:
I am a hiker, not a biker. I was totally impressed with this hike. Though it is not marked and I have no idea how far I hiked, it was a good 2 hour plus workout. I don't know if it is good for bikers or not. It was fairly wet due to all the spring rains, but if you like hiking and don't want to travel another hour or two to Arkansas, it is a good workout and I could see it being a good training trail to prepare for longer hikes. I now have a map of the trails (it is a little confusing with cross roads) and plan to return again.

Summary:
Rode this trail for the first time today and won't be returning. There were a few bright spots, but overall this trail was just not an enjoyable ride. It has great potential and has a group doing work on it, but I'm afraid it may need more work than anyone would be willing to put in. There are lots of roots, climbs and some nice downhill areas, but its all ruined by the billions of baseball sized rocks that make up the majority of the trail. It was not difficult, nor was it unridable by any means, but it just left me feeling beat up at the end of it. Just far too rocky, and not the good kind of rocky. There are lots of better places to ride in the area. This one's better suited for the horses.

Recommended Route:
Rode it Clockwise (North entrance). Seems like its probably the better way to ride it.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Head to NW Arkansas, more good stuff there than you can ride in one season.

Summary:
Great write up by Big Jim. Not much more to add but...
Main parking area is at Western edge of Park. A paved parking, pit toilet, Pavilion and a paved 1 mile path with overlook deck are at that staging area.

Recommended Route:
From the main parking area - You can drop into either the North or South direction on single track. The main outer loop is almost 7 miles with fire roads and other single tracks criss crossing the main outer loop. Mostly wooded, the trail changes from ridge, bench, meadow and short rocky up and downs.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
You can actually tie into the Crowder trails system (mostly fire roads, from the Eastern edge of Bicentennial - fire road to HH to several parking areas - again criss cross fire roads, undulating wooded terrain.

Summary:
Thought I would review this sweet trail as the other reviews are old. I rode it 9/13/06 and found the trail in excellent shape except for a few washed out hills due to the horses that also ride it. Other than that it is a nice piece of work. I know a SW Mo. group did some maintenance recently and it was appreciated. Nowhere did I have any brush problems. This is typical rocky Ozark singletrack, some hills but only a couple on power line ROW I couldn't climb. There are several stunts built over logs and one bridge/ladder thing on its own. All stunts had routes around them, thanks guys! What impressed me on this trail was once you clear the hills you are rewarded by fast, flowy singletrack on the level with nice clear woodlands to enjoy, not all grown up like Berryman. I saw many deer. This is a relatively easy ride but very enjoyable, can't remember when I had so much fun riding. Take extra tubes, I got three flats.

Recommended Route:
Head to Memorial Park, there are bathrooms there. I got on at the first sign I saw just off TT, had a lot of trouble finding the trail in the creek bottom and completely missed it coming back, had to take the road to find my van. I rode counterclockwise, would be more fun clockwise. Several optional loops worth exploring.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Haven't tried any others but maybe Huckleberry Ridge.
