Hero: Cold Mountain - Southern Missouri Off-Road Ranch
small-sr Icon

Located within Southern Missouri Off-Road Ranch (SMORR), Cold Mountain is a moderate trail with several short rock ledges, a steep hill climb, and a variety of lines to keep the trail interesting for just about any vehicle. This is a straight-through trail that connects Backwoods Road 1 with Gaucho and is the main access point to the Cougar Crossing Badge of Honor trail. The section of Cold Mountain between Backwoods Road 1 and Cougar Crossing is nothing more than a dirt road. The trail then begins descending 134 feet in 1/10th of a mile and traverses a couple of 10 to 12-inch rock ledges before bottoming out in a ravine and offering several lines back up a steep ascent with optional rock ledges up to 14''. This trail is great for beginners and suitable for an aggressive stock vehicle looking for a challenge. A small lift and larger tires make the trail significantly easier.
