McAdoo Trail (yellow arrows)
50 at Knob Noster south on Hwy. 23 to Hwy. DD. The trailhead is .75
mile west of the intersection, on south side of Hwy. DD.
This 7.1-mile trail is the park's only trail open to equestrians
and mountain bicyclists, as well as hikers. The trail travels through
both bottomland and upland forests with several creek crossings.
Travelers on this trail will pass through Christopher Woods, a section
of forest that contains the oldest stand of continuous timber within
the park. Clearfork Creek may be crossed by using an old iron bridge.
After heavy rains, this trail has many areas that hold water, so users
will want to plan accordingly. This is a very rugged trail for mountain
bicyclists and hikers, due to the standing water and hoof prints that
can be present.
