Highlight: Boyd Road
Located just shy of 4 miles north of the increasingly popular Falling Water Road trailhead, lies a quaint little trail most folks have never heard of, Boyd Road. Boyd Road/1008 makes an excellent addition to any Ozark National Forest Overlanding route! It's a fun peaceful ride that's not "just another gravel road". It offers not only serenity but a bit of challenge as well. But what if you're just looking for a day ride? Well, it's excellent for that too! Boyd Road appears to start as any other typical gravel road but quickly transitions to a trail working its way down Chinquapin Knob Mountain. There are several little stream crossings and a couple of larger ones to appreciate. Around the halfway mark you'll cross Cedar Creek. Cedar Creek makes an excellent place to stop for lunch and play in the water. Directly following the creek is the old Boyd Cemetery you can stop and check out. The rumor is it's haunted if you believe in that sort of thing. Regardless of whether it is or is not, it's definitely nostalgic, and as most old cemeteries do, it has a bit of an eerie feel. The Ozarks are filled with gorgeous fascinating places to explore and this is another one you won't want to miss!
