Trail Overview

Scroggins Ridge 1171 is a gravel forest road in Mark Twain National Forest that descends south from highway 76 down to Rock Creek. There are 6 creek crossings that can be challenging after heavy rains. Due to extreme drought conditions in 2022, caution needs to be taken for falling trees and branches along the trail. As you continue deeper into the forest, you will climb Section 10 road to Bean Ridge Road, which ends at an incredible campsite with an overlooking view. When driving this trail, a tree was down that was too large for us to continue on to the campsite. Several areas along Rock Creek have been washed out from heavy storms, and Bean Ridge is becoming overgrown.
