Rider-reported Trail Conditions
Mile Marker(s)
Bridge out

There are still no signs or markers for cyclist and hikers and no signs to alert auto traffic to the presence of pedestrians on highway 40 west of Rocheport. I inquired with MODOT and Mo State Parks last year. Hopefully some improvements will be forthcoming. Ride safe, hope for the best from autos, Maurice

Bridge out

Update on the Salt Creek bridge detour: No work has been done since my last update on 5/2/20. Today I talked to MO State Parks region coordinator. She said that the old bridge is irreparable, and there are no immediate plans to start replacement (and it is going to be expensive). The State budget starts on July 1st, and she did not know if funds had been allocated for replacement. If budget is not approved, then there is little to no chance of the bridge being replaced in the next year. MO State Parks wants the trail re-opened as quickly as possible.

Trail washed out - partial

The trail is very rough, but still cyclable at slow speed, from McBaine to about 400 yards past Hindman Junction.

With the exception of rough to very rough conditions on either side of McBaine for about 1/2 mile (each way) where water went across the trail and made it into a wash-board, from Easley to Rocheport is in good to very-good condition. But even in the rough area in McBaine, it is still cyclable at slower speeds as there are some smooth, but narrow strips passing through the area.

Repairs are complete at McBaine

About the map: This map has several shortcomings, but hopefully it will still be helpful in visualizing the locations of the trail conditions.
  • In general, pin colors indicate good conditions (green), bad conditions (red), or moderate conditions (yellow).
  • Hover over a pin for location; click a pin for details.
  • When a trail condition covers a section, rather than a single location, numbered pins will appear at the start and end of that section.
  • Not all pins appear, because some are directly on top of others, For example, if several reported sections start or end on Boonville, only one of those Boonville pins will be visible because it exactly covers the other Boonville pins.

Future enhancements:
  • Add Rock Island Trail
  • Setting for ability to filter by date
  • Ability to flag conditions that are no longer accurate
