Tonight I’m out on the cedar creek trail in Missouri near Columbia. I started the trail about 11am this morning, and completed about 17 miles before pulling off to the side of the trail to crash. The morning consisted mostly of walking through pastures like this:
About 7:30pm I’d had enough, and decided to stop. After reviewing my gps while lying here in my tent, I wish I’d pushed down to dry fork campground. So far the only trail traffic I’ve seen all day is a couple on horses shortly after the bugs chased me into the tent. They were pretty rude. Im also not a fan of the damage horses have done on this area either. I don’t think I’ll be coming back here anytime soon. My plan is to get up early and push to leave this trail behind me. After bushwacking through a bunch of crappy “trails” I need a bath badly.
Tldr; skip cedar creek.
