A new spur of the Ozark Trail is under construction along the Current River in Shannon County’s rugged northern backcountry. Once completed it will create the first hike/float loops within the Ozark National Scenic Riverways and connect the nearby National Park Service facilities with the L-A-D Foundation’s Roger Pryor Pioneer Backcountry as well as Current River and Echo Bluff state parks.

“This is a massive undertaking, it’s one of the largest projects we’ve undertaken on in the 15 years since we we’re created,” says Ozark Trail Association President Kathie Brennan. “It’s going to be a few more years before we're done, but once we do finish, this will give our kids one of the best opportunities to enjoy nature in Missouri and discover the unique history and ecosystems of the Ozarks.”
