Springfield, Busiek State Forest and Wildlife Area, West Trail

mo

Star Star Star Star Star

Distance: 8.4 miles


This area is mainly forest with savanna and old fields. The area provides multiple recreation use opportunities. A well marked trail system provides approximately 18 miles of trails for use by hikers, bicyclists, and horseback riders.

18 miles south of Springfield Mo take highway 65 to Busier Rd. Conservation Department signs clearly mark the turn off. This 8.4 mi loop is typical of the Ozarks. Rocky, rocky, rocky. Very quiet area once you get a mile or two back. Great views of the surounding hills in the fall.  Trails are clearly marked with painted blazes.
