Exploring our Trails

Wolf Creek Trail System has 22 miles of mountain bike optimized trail. We have over 57 miles of the Ozark Trail, a National Recreation Trail, in our backyard. Sam A. Baker and Lake Wappapello State Parks offer outstanding hiking and horseback riding opportunities. The Poplar Bluff Park Department manages a great network of paved trails. Now get outside and enjoy these great resources!

Volunteering on our Trails

Trails don't maintain themselves! With limited staffing and funding for trails, our public land partners such as US Forest Service, Missouri Department of Conservation and Missouri Department of Natural Resources - State Parks Division all rely on volunteers to build and maintain trails. Visit our "Upcoming Events" page to get involved.
