HONEY RUN

Average Rating:    (4.64 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 11

Located in Lake of the Ozarks state park. A 3 mile contour singletrack trail connects to 2 loops south which is great for beginners 3 miles in length all nice singletrack. Climbs are no more than 30 verticle feet. This loop goes around the honey run creek valley. North loop is an intermediate contour single track route through cedar groves, along the honey run creek and overlooking lake of the ozarks. The four and one half mile loop also winds through the rolling hills of the park. There are many sections of hand and DINGO benchcut trail that flows great, all center front chainring riding. This is the first of hopefully three phases that just may have a route along party cove.

Summary:
Rode the north trail twice (counter-clockwise and then clockwise) and then south trail once. Once rested, I rode the connector out and back again. By the end of the day, I was exhausted. That being said, I cannot really say that I enjoyed myself here. After reading all the reviews as to how awesome it is, I felt a bit disappointed. Was the north loop technical? Sort of. I definitely had to be vigilant on a couple squeeze sections. Was the connector flowy? Certain sections were, but not as much as I expected from the reviews. Loved the ridge spine though. South loop was mostly mud. Drove up from Nixa to see what was what. Was definitely worth checking out, but not sure about a return trip.

Recommended Route:
As noted above.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Warsaw, Stockton Lake trail (now that is what I call flowy), Sac, Two Rivers

Summary:
Great surface, minimal trail surface erosion; excellent scenery; there are some technical spots, but nothing extraordinary; parking at the trailhead can accommodate maybe two to four vehicles, comfortably. Trail consists of three sections: Uplands flatwood section, going from the trailhead to McCubbins drive; the south loop, covering the southwest section of the trail; the north loop, covering the northeast section of the trail. Both loops intersect with the gravel-paved surface of McCubbins drive. Intersections at the road are marked with labels on vertical stakes. North loop provides some views of the lake. All sections provide excellent views of the Ozark woods. Wear tick repellent. Thanks to the kind folks keeping the trail clear of treefall. Note, as far as the phantom GPS track, for this trail, now appearing by my name: It would appear that the GPX upload operation did not complete successfully. The map is available with Google Maps - http://bit.ly/b5e2cU

Recommended Route:
The track going from the trailhead, along the Upland Flatwoods section, then through the south loop, the north loop, and finally back to the trailhead, is approximately 13 miles, and affords an easy flow to the progress of the ride.

It looks like that's actually Anderson Hollow Road, which the trail intersects with. The trailhead is located along McCubbins Drive.

Summary:
This was my first ride in Missouri. Took a while for me to find it but once I found "A" road it was pretty easy. The ride did feel like it was a slight downhill for the most part. I kept wondering when I was going to get hit with an up. The trail was very fun for me, kind of like the trail that got me into mountain biking. I'm sitting here looking at my bike and all the mud caked on it. Next order of business.....cleaning. The ride was just under 14 miles at 13.63 and like they said before.....intuitive. Get on the trail and go and you will get out of it what you put into it as far as pace. I plan on taking my SO on this trail although at a much slower pace. Not very technical though but still fun!

Recommended Route:
Only rode this once.

Summary:
I went down and rode this trail last weekend. It flows real well, it seems like I was always going downhill. If you are looking for a technical challenge this isn't it. If you are looking for a fast fun ride it is hard to beat. A little more challenge would give it a 5 but I rate it a solid 4 for the fun element.

Recommended Route:
Start at the small parking lot follow the signs. I had never been on this trail and didn't have a map but the route is very intuitive. This trail was very well planned out. The 1st loop feeds right into the next one, it is real smooth.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Binder in Jeff City

Summary:
Trail is awesome. The connector trail is fast, without any big climbs and armored pretty well. Make sure you have a trail map and if you need to bail after the connector, just take a left on the dirt road and it'll intersect with McCubbins, take a left and your at the trailhead.... I dig both loops usually only ride one however.
This trail can be an easy ride or a hard ride depending on how aggressive you are. Most of the time I ride hard and fast, but lately the leaves are covering the trail and there are sections you REALLY need to be able to see what's under the leaves. Be cautious in the fall.

Recommended Route:
Connector Trail, North Loop

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Bittersweet
