Trail Information


A quiet, peaceful journey awaits as you travel along Barker Road. Situated near one of the main roads crossing the Ozark National Forest, Barker provides a great off-highway access point into the heart of the forest while experiencing a small waterfall along the way. This road is an excellent start to your journey through the spectacular Ozarks National Forest.

Pretty much as Brandon described but about 1/4 mile before the trail ends at the old deer camp there’s a mud hole that has gotten worse lately. There’s a bypass shown on the right in the pic that’s been cut recently but it was a tight fit for a Tacoma in our group that chose to take it . The waterfall was pretty dry on this trip but at good water is really nice

Went out and ran this. Definitely gets a little narrow from brush in the summer when everything is grown up versus when I did it in the winter. A few muddy spots but trail is ultimately the same as described.
