I have seen conflicting reports about closures between Booneville and Jefferson City. Are the reports on the parks page accurate? Particularly, McBane to Hartsburg seem to be questionable. Any insights are appreciated.

Any info people have about this would be helpful. Planning a trip in the coming weeks.

I had no issues from Rocheport to Easley. I did not ride from Easley to Hartsburg. I spoke to a another biker on this forum who had tried it and he said that a strong rider on a mountain bike would be able to do it. It was very rough, sections with large gravel, long sections of sand/silt that required walking the bike through it. It can be done, but it just depends on how much time and effort you want to spend to complete these 10 miles as it sounds like they will wear you out fairly quickly.

New Franklin to Rocheport is closed with a detour available on Hwy 40. You may be OK with it or not, depending on your experience riding on fast roads. It's not for me -- I am strictly a trail guy.
