The Chubb Trail and its companion paths offer everything a good hike should have— from challenging climbs and descents, from windy ridges and cool, calm hollows to easy meanders next to the Meramec River, where you’ll spot lots of wildlife.

Spent 3 days backpacking. Started at Bell Mountain North trailhead, and finished at Barton Fen, total 31 miles. This is a very isolated hiking area, only passed one hiker in 3 days. Brushy Creek Lodge provided shuttle service for a modest price! The trail was full of wild flowers, turtles and SNAKES, including a rattler. Lots of ticks, but this is Missouri! Scenery was nice, and the hike was enjoyable. Great views from Bell Mountain. Plenty of water once you are down the mountain. Limited camp sites. If you take this route, the first established place to camp is peter Cave Hollow Creek, 10.6 miles. The next available place to camp for the second night is Wolfpen Hollow Waterfall, and it is at mile 24.7. So you are putting in a serious 14 mile hike the second day. But that means you can sleep in the next morning with only about 6.5 miles left. There is a good website where you can plan your own route, get details of each route and it also provides detailed maps and topo maps: ozarktrail,com. When you finish at Barton Fen, be sure to stop in for a meal at the Bixby Country Store on hwy 32.

We walked the Lindsey Mtn Trail to a disappointing dead end. Trail was vague. We Thought the red markers indicated the trail, but couldn't get past all the overgrowth and downed trees. So , sadly, no amazing view from the top.
