The trailhead parking lot is located off Hwy. 303, approximately one mile from the intersection on the north side of Hwy. 12. The first 1/2 mile of this loop trail follows a ridgeline, providing an easy hike. The trail then descends into Shaddox Hollow. The descent is rather steep in places. The trail winds along the creek through stands of hardwoods and native Ozark vegetation. Some interesting limestone bluffs are found along this section. After progressing up the creek, the trail begins the climb back to the trailhead. This climb can be strenuous in places.

My husband, our 8 year old daughter, and myself hiked this today. Perfect for our young hiker! Took us just over an hour. We took our time playing on the rocks and exploring the flora! Great hike! Perfect for all ages! Enjoy!
My 4 y/o daughter and I hiked this trail this morning. I've done it several times before, but this was her first. Took us about an hour and a half. Perfect for younger hikers.

Beautiful, quiet trail with a little bit of everything along the way. Great for a nice morning hike through the woods and very kid friendly.
