“Wildcat Road provides a good entry into the Bateman Trail system.”— Missouri Hiker
At the northern apex of the trail, you'll find the Merriman family cemetery with many grave markers dating back to to the early 20th century. Past the cemetery, the trail curves sharply (private property boundary marked with purple). Depending on the season, a creek crossing is necessary here to connect to the other adjacent trails. The trail is shared with horses and ATVs, haphazardly marked with a mix of orange and pink marking tape.
