This trail actually consists of two loops and a connecting trail between the two. all told, you can put together a 26 mile ride if you do everything. one loop is in Thousand Hill Park, the other is not. The one in the park is about 3 miles long with some really fun drop-ins. if you come here used to columbia riding or st louis riding, like castlewood, chubb, rock bridge, this will be easy as hell. it isn't a really challenging trail, but if you know where to go and play around, you could have a really fun time. i think it would be a great race course, if there were enough people in kirksville who rode. oh well. if you are in there area, get a hold of me and we'll ride.
How to get there:
going north on 63, make a left at route 6 across from walmart, then go down a couple of miles until you see the small brown sign that sez "Thousand Hills State Park, and it points to the left. make a left there, and go past the marina and pavilion and other parking lots, and then as you go back up the hill, there are 3 or 4 trail heads on your left. look for them.
the connecting trail isn't maintained regularly, so be selective when you ride it.
