Format: Paperback
This is a very handy little book to own if you are into the hiking thing at any level. I say this, but always remember that not any one book can meet all needs. I certainly would not use this book, and this book alone to plan my entire book. I have hiked many of the trails; both in Missouri and Arkansas over the years, and can say for certain that the information in this volume is pretty accurate. That being said.....

As the title would indicate, this is a book dealing with 50 hiking trails located in the Missouri and Arkansas Ozarks. It should be noted that a few of these trails are outside the area that traditionally are known as the Ozarks, some of those located in Eastern Missouri being the most notable. Each of the trails is given an entire chapter and one black and white photo to represent some aspect of the trail. The author has included total distances, hiking time, vertical rise, rating (easy, mild, difficult, etc.), and maps with GPS coordinates. The author has done a pretty good job of describing the trail, identifying and specific difficulties and letting the hiker know the nature of the facilities at each location. It should be noted here that the author's distances will differ somewhat from government and local literature. I would highly recommend that you go by the author's figures rather than the government figures as they are much more accurate. I would also recommend that you pick up local literature at the site of the trail before you begin the hike, ignoring the distances, but paying close attention to other trail tips and camp locations, if applicable.

Some of the location directions of some of these trails are a bit general and I do recommend you purchase a map of the local area, or at least a good, detailed state map.

Good rough location map. Good spreadsheet on hikes. 1 for Mo and 1 for AR but I added page numbers to find the hike rather than use his hike numbers. I only checked some AK hikes but the MO hikes are of the same caliber. The hikes are in the north west part of AR in a tight cluster so you can stay at a central location. They range from 1 to 12 miles. Entering the state you can pick up flyers for the more public state park hikes further south. Directions to trailheads are good but sometimes you may have to ask for help. This is a function of location and nothing to do with lack of detail. GPS Coordinates are listed for each place. The hikes appear to be at more remote locations tnen are mentioned in some other MO and AR hiking books. Each hike has a black and white picture of a feature found on the hike.
This is a worthwhile book to have and is in the same style and detail as his other books.

I recently purchased this book and have already had the opportunity to use it on the trails. It is a worthy source of info that will serve you well. The excellent photographs will leave you eager to begin your next hiking trip in the ozarks of Missouri and Arkansas so that you can see these magical places for yourself.

This book is the perfect hiking planner partner. Covers all the bases, lets you know up front what to expect, sights you will see along the way. I love this book, it gives you great directions on how to get to these places. Living in AR I can vouch that they are not all marked, some are hidden and you have to know what you are looking for. Lets you know about nearby camping, all you have to do is go online and find out the details, like fees and procedures to reserve if any. Perfect for weekend backpacker/hiker such as me. My dog, this book, and camp equip is all I need.

I own several Tim Ernst books and this one, though not written by Tim, is a great little book. It has a nice at-a-glance spreadsheet at the very beginning on the trails listed, first by the ones in AR followed by the ones in MO. Each trail is numbered consecutively and lists name, city, distance, views (waterfalls, camping, etc), and comments. Great tool for my Type A personality! lol Great purchase as long as you know that you need to use other tools as well--I certainly would not use this book, and this book alone to plan my entire hike.

Who knew we had so many great places to hike so close. I purchased this book for our college son who loves the outdoors. He has several hikes dog eared waiting for spring to arrive so he can get out and enjoy nature. The book details the location, provides historic information about the area and even gives information on what to expect with weather, crowds and other critical facts to help your hike successful. It's an easy read that I must confess I read before I wrapped and gave to my son. If he leaves the book here while he's at college, I may just snag the book from him. This book is a must if you are considering hiking in Missouri.
