Honey Creek Conservation Area, is a 1,148-acre chunk of forested hillsides and open fields next to the Nodaway River. Its 11-mile trail system wanders throughout the landscape on hard-packed double-track roads and ATV-width paths, with a couple of short sections on gravel roads. With its wide trails and mostly easy grades, Honey Creek is perfect for beginners. Only a few short, steep grades dot this network as it winds over and through forested hillsides and wildlife food plots on hilltop and bottomland fields. All intersections are marked with Carsonite posts with horse, hikers, and biker symbols. Spring and fall are the best times to ride at Honey Creek. Winter can be fun, because you may have the place to yourself.These trails are located 15 miles northwest of St. Joseph.

Hit The Multi-use trail loop A this afternoon. Lots of wildlife to see here from deer to all kinds of birds. Trail is definitely used by horses. Trail can be rough on the ascent and descent regions with lots of rock. Good Hike overall. Going to hit the Multi use trail B sometime soon. There were a few down trees along the trail, needing a little maintenance but overall a good time for me.
