The trail doesn't close during hunting season but it never hurts to wear bright orange or other visible colors when hiking in Conservation Areas during deer/turkey season.

Description

From the trail entrance on the right of the road, this pine needle covered path starts very wide and open. An off-trail path on your right leads to a nice little pond that is usually full of frog activity and buzzing insects. Once you hit the back of the loop there is an off-trail path that you can take if you're feeling adventuresome. Otherwise as you continue you on the short Pine Trail loop, it becomes a bit narrower or overgrown in some spots depending on the time of year. It's still very easy to navigate though.

Flora & Fauna

The trail is named after the abundance of pine trees and throughout the spring and summer you'll find a small variety of wildflowers. There's the potential to catch deer and lots of other critters there or at least find their tracks and scat!

It's a really pretty grove of very tall pine trees. I would love to camp there. You don't see this kind of scenery much in Missouri. 0.2mi
