Trail Information


This technical trail in the Ozark National Forest is an excellent way to save time by cutting from Adams Mountain Road to North Fork Road in order to continue exploring other areas of the forest.  This short trail is a great way to dodge those mundane gravel roads, do a little technical driving, and get in some good experience and practice with a spotter.  Be warned, though.  You WILL NEED a spotter to deal with the washouts.  It's not the hardest trail, which makes it PERFECT for beginner off-roaders with a good spotter, or medium experienced off-roaders with a beginner spotter wanting to get practice.  Don't let the short length of this fool you; this trail offers plenty of excitement with a challenging hill climb/descent, washouts in the middle of the trail, and an exciting stair-step rock climb on the west end.

Fun little trail, got a little nervous running it east to west, just me and my wife in our stock rig. She turned out to be a great spotter and the 4Runner did great. Recommend not doing this alone, one wrong move and you could be in a bind.

Trail hasnt changed much over the years other than the ruts maybe being a little deeper. I prefer to run it from east to west as I prefer to run the ruts down hill. It’s not that big of a deal as we’ve taken stock rigs through there pretty easily. Just take it slow , a spotter helps but not really mandatory, the ledges on the west end are minor and easily done without a spotter, again Just slow and easy. It’s a fun short trail.
