Scenic vistas, stream fords, caves, springs, wildflowers- this 21 mile loop is a wealth of wonders. The north part of the loop follows the Blue Ridge Horse Trail, and the south leg follows the westernmost 11 miles of the Eleven Point River segment of the Ozark Trail. The south half of the loop along the Ozark Trail follows nine miles of hilly single-track through the forest and two miles of double-track in open bottomlands. The Blue Ridge Trail Loop winds through low wooded mountains surrounding Spring Creek, a tributary of the nearby Eleven Point Scenic River. You'll climb to breezy ridge tops, snake along through the highlands for a while, and then descend to shady, quiet hollows, where cool stream crossings await. This trail is located 15 miles southwest of Winona.
