County Road P-235, on the northern end, starts in the Mark Twain National Forest and then transitions to the Roger Pryor Pioneer Back Country for most of the trail. The southern end, where the road parallels the Current River, is part of the Ozark National Scenic Riverways. Traveling from north to south, it starts as a gravel road on a ridge line. Just before approaching the Current River, there is a steep descent into the valley, where the condition of the decent gravel road begins to get rough with ruts and small rocks. Once at the bottom, there are stream crossings, mud puddles, and dirt. Colwil Lake is worth checking out as there are a few access points along the road and campsites. Once the trail turns back north, it gets a moderate rating due to several water crossings along unnamed creeks, with the final crossing being Blair Creek. Loose rock and varying water depths create challenges, so 4WD is undoubtedly needed. Depending on the time of year, the water depth and width vary at the crossings, so beware. The trail gets tight in a few places, so expect pin striping.
