Trail Overview

The Cave Spoon runs North to South through Mark Twain National Forest in Missouri. This trail offers dispersed campsites if chosen with creativity. There are plenty of pull-off locations in case of traffic. Fallen trees blocking the trail are likely, as well as pinstripes. This forest has spotty service, so be sure to download offline maps.

Difficulty

The space between Cave Fork and Gooseneck Ridge is rocky and washed out, which could require extra ground clearance.

Came in from the Gooseneck end of the trail, and did it in my 2013 AWD Toyota Sienna. I would not recommend the southern half of the trail for anything with low clearance like that haha. Awesome trail though, and I hope to get back there with 4WD soon.
