County Road 242 is part of the Roger Pryor Pioneer Back Country area. The southern half of the route follows Blair Creek, while the northern half climbs out of the valley. The water crossings along the creek make this a fun and challenging trail. Expect pin striping as parts of the trail do get tight. The width and depth of the water crossings vary with the time of year and how much rainfall there has been in the area. Campsites are plentiful on the many gravel bars on the creek. The creek crossings are loose gravel, so 4WD is necessary. There are cliffs and rock outcroppings to see along the trail as well. On the southern half, the Ozark Trail - Blair Creek Section follows the route, so be observant for hikers. As the trail emerges from the valley, there are rock formations to check out.
