Mountain Bike! Ozarks
by Steve Henry (Menasha Ridge Press)
The McAdoo Equestrian Trail, a lop ride, is an excellent choice for beginner's first single-track experience. With the exception of a one-mile stretch of old gravel road from the equestrian camp to the main loop, the entire trail in smooth single-track with a uniform hard-packed dirt surface. The ride is seven miles if you start from the equestrian camp, and five miles if you start from the MO DD access. This trail is located in Knob Noster State Park, 2 miles southwest of Knob Noster.
This could be a nice trail.. unfortunalty it has been ruined by horses in the spring mud.. Washboard doesn't begin to describe the roughness of the trail..
The layout of the trail is good
It has some climbs but a nice mix of switchbacks climbs and downhill.. And is a fairly short but rides long in current condition..
I would not take a beginner to this trail due to the roughness.
