This connector trail is a great way to link together the north and south legs of the Big Piney Trail. This small cut-through is especially useful if you're trying to make a looped hike without traveling the full distance of the Big Piney Trail.
The section is 2 miles of trail that traverse a variety of Ozark terrain, scenery, and vegetation types. Along the way, you'll be heavily shaded, making this a pleasant jaunt. The terrain will be manageable, but in either direction you'll have one considerable descent, followed by one considerable ascent. Though it's a shortcut, don't expect it to be a walk in the park. Rocky terrain will keep you on your toes!
