Trail Overview

Mary Cole Ridge 1011 is a scenic ridge road in Mark Twain National Forest with distant overlooks through the hardwoods seen in the fall and wintertime. This meandering ridgeline road has many campsite pull-offs and spur trails more appropriate for side by sides and motorcycles. The road is well-maintained gravel with large pieces of rock and gravel hidden under the leaves. In some areas, it can be rougher as you descend down the ridgeline. The road eventually becomes narrower and has one last turn around point intersecting other trails before it becomes even more narrow and dead ends. At the trailhead off state, highway 86 is a large parking and staging area for parking a trailer and setting off in a side by side, four-wheeler or motorcycle.
