Highlight: Southern Missouri Off-Road Ranch: Pee-Wee's Crossing
Pee Wee’s Crossing is an extraordinarily scenic route along a shaded creek bed within Southern Missouri Off-Road Ranch (SMORR). Being one of two Jeep “Badge of Honor” trails within the park, the trail draws Jeep owners from great distances, though the trail is, of course, available for all to enjoy. The trail provides options to run either parallel to or directly in a shallow creek bed, with frequent crossovers all along the route. A couple of small optional waterfall ledges along the route provide you with a fun diversion if you so desire. Be sure to pack a lunch as the trail offers several possible spots to stop for lunch and enjoy the sounds of a babbling creek. Please note, however, that the park no longer permits full-sized vehicles.

Q: I just bought my Jeep and am wanting easy trails for now. Can we do the easy stuff without going on the moderate to difficult ones? Is it possible to go on the trails and not put scratches on our vehicles? Thank you!
