“Currently a stand alone section of the Ozark Trail connecting Marble Creek campground to Crane Lake.”— Ozark Trail Association
The Marble Creek Trail is the neglected sister-trail to the Ozark Trail. It stretches between the Taum Sauk and Wappapello sections. Currently, private land prevents the connection at the end of the trail in either direction.
The trail is a point-to-point from Marble Creek Campground to the Crane Lake trailhead with a loop around Crane Lake. The southern section of the loop is more scenic, as it passes by the shut-ins below the dam and goes by some interesting geology.
