    Hey fellas.
    I am running a project down in Farmington Missouri and I am going to have some free time after the job so I am going to bring the AR down to have a little fun! I know there has been people that have ridden there and I have a few questions.
    -Are paddles needed/recommended?
    -What is the terrain like?
    -Any spots to avoid
    -Any spots to look for?
    -Are there any trails for a 72" wide car?
    And Anyone up to meet up and ride? I am thinking I will be there July 6, and 7th to ride. Possibly earlier if the job goes well.

    It's been a while since we were there, but paddles are not the best tire. Too much chance for damage. The woods are too tight for you, or so I was told regarding my Pilot. The open areas are plenty open, but there are some narrow spots here and there on trails along the stream(s). You'll love it. If I have remembered something wrong, someone please correct me.


    Here's a 10 minute video I posted from there. It was during my helmet cam experiments, so it's very shaky, but you should get a idea of the place. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aFx6SDzqceM

    While watching that video, all I could think about was how freakin hot it was that week we were there!!!! I could feel the heat coming off the screen, and the refreshing water when running through the streams...LOL... I haven't been there in a couple of years, but it has changed tremendously... Its still a good place to ride, but not great... The EPA finally got involved, and now, most streams are covered in rocks... Not like gravel either... I'm talking 8-10" rocks that make riding over them next to impossible...
    As to answer the question about paddles, they are not needed.. The terrain can change from coarse sand to hard pack to rocks in the course of only a few seconds... There is plenty of space for a 72" wide car, but not in the woods as the trails will be too narrow... Its still a great place to camp, but now, only a good place to ride...
