Just south of Highway 50, about midway between Sedalia and Warrensburg.

Facilities are good for about 20 or more campers at a time. They do have pens for horses and good water. Bathrooms are not to bad. This is a really nice family or group trail. It is supposed to be horse only but have seen mountain bike tracks on trail sometimes. PH 816-563-2463

Sam A. Baker State Park
Paterson: The have a few wonderful campsites that can be reserved either online or by telephone. Horses are picketed in an area by each campsite. The park has nature programs, a store, and a nice restaurant. It is a lovely place to take horses!
They have one easy trail - I think called the Ozark, and the Mudlick Trail.

Mudlick Trail provides an intimate journey into one of the oldest mountain regions of North America: the St. Francois Mountains. It is a moderate to very strenuous 12-mile loop trail, climbing from 415 feet above sea level in Big Creek Valley to 1,313 feet above sea level at the top of Mudlick Mountain.
It is open to hiking, backpacking and equestrian use. Most of the trail is located in the Mudlick Mountain Wild Area, one of the most significant, undisturbed natural landscapes in Missouri.

Berry Bend Horse Trail
Warsaw: Truman Dam and reservoir, RT2, Box 29A, Warsaw, 816-438-7317
The park is on Truman Lake and is operated by the Army Corps. of Eng.

Berry Bend North Campground has been designated for equestrian camping and is open most of the year. It is closed during deer season. Facilities include a shower building with laundry dump station, 89 campsites with fire rings, picnic tables, lantern hangers (24 with electrical hookups) and a playground. Water, laundry and shower facilities are available from mid-April to mid-October, weather permitting. Individual sites are available on both a first come/first serve and reservation basis. Reservations are taken beginning mid-April by the park attendant. You should maximize your safety and enjoyment by avoiding periods of intense hunting pressure, as the trails are located on lands open for public hunting.

The trail is designated for equestrians and hiking use only. Wheeled vehicles, including mountain bikes, are not permitted.

The west trailhead is located at the northwest corner of the parking lot of Shelter House No. I and follows the north shore of the Osage Rival west for approximately 12 roundtrip miles (development started in 1993). The east trailhead begins near campsite #1 in the Berry Bead North campground and winds east above the north shore of the lake, along several ridges. It contains approximately 25 miles of trail.

Equestrians riding just for the day should access both trails at Shelter #1 parking lot. When accessing the west trailhead from the campground or the east trail from the shelter, all riders must cross the blacktop park access road at the designated crossing for your safety. The trails run generally east and west along the north shore of the Osage Arm of the lake and are flagged blue, orange and white. The blue flagging identifies the upper boundary trail and orange flagging the shoreline trail. White flagging identifies passes connecting the upper and lower trails to make a loop. Riders and hikers will have several options for trips of varying lengths. Mile markers have been added to inform riders how far they are to and from the Berry Bend N campground. The West trail traverses many steep ridges and valleys. It will be a challenge to both horse and rider. The East trail is somewhat more level and overlooks the lake in several areas. It is recommended that your animal be in good riding condition and adequately shod to provide protection from the sharp flint gravel.

Reservations are recommended for week ends and need to be made two weeks in advance. Reservations can be made through The National Recreation Reservation Service effective March 1, 1999 at this toll free number, 1-877-444-6777 or via the internet at http://ReserveUSA.com.

Katy Trail
Trail Head: Sedalia Missouri
Location: Near the South West corner of the State Fair grounds, the parking lot at the trail head is not part of the Fair grounds but it is close. There is ample parking, grass to stretch the horses out on after the trailer ride and a water hydrant up near the gate. No restrooms were available the day we were there (5/13/00)
Mileage: Approximately 51 miles (25.6 miles from Sedalia to Calhoun)
Terrain: Level rail bed which was converted to a trail, shoes not required if horses are used to being barefoot

The trail head was fairly easy to find, we came into Sedalia off 50 Highway and there were brown state park signs leading us right to the parking lot at the trail head. There was plenty of room in the parking lot. There were 11 riders and 5 trailers with room to spare. We got a map of the entire trail, which is over 200 miles long, from an auditor who was taking surveys from trail users. He left the park at 11:00 a.m. and we didn't see any maps available at the information board. The map doesn't show all the road crossing anyway but it does provide a bit of the history of the trail.

The trail is 25.6 miles out and then you turn around and ride back. There are “obstacles”, we passed several bicyclists and by the end of the day our horses were getting used to them. In the 12 miles that we rode we crossed two black top roads and turned around at the fourth gravelled road. Along the way there was also a wooden bridge to cross, twice. That was exciting.
There are several signs along the way pointing out that bikes and pedestrians yield to horses. There are also mile markers, the trail head starts at 229 so there is a little bit of math involved in figuring out how far you rode.

Horse Haven, Hulston Mill Trail system
Everton: (Springfield area)
Hulston Mill trail located on the south side of the Stockton Reservior. It is a beautiful trail, culminating at the historic Hulston Mill, which is currently being restored. There are two public access parking locations, but I would also like to let people know of a day or overnight spot on my property. This location has water, electricity, outhouses, and a pavilion style shelter. It also has hitching posts for the horses, and plenty of parking for the rigs. We aren't but a few hundred feet from two trail heads abutting turnback creek, and being that we aren't a quarter mile from the river, it is also great spot for fishing or a refreshing swim after a long ride. We practically ride the trail daily, and are disappointed at the lack of use from other riders, which leads us to believe that it is not known about.
Directions:
The Hulston Mill has a sign on Hwy 160, about thirty miles northwest of Springfield (halfway between Everton and Greenfield) at county road EE. We are located exactly one mile past EE, north on RD 181 one mile till it makes a T, then left about a half a mile. We are the last place on the road. The pavilion area is left open to the public so it is a first come first serve situation (though to this point we have never had anyone unable to park), and is free, though donations are welcome to help with the electricity bill.

Honey Creek
St. Joseph: Honey Creek is one of the more exceptionally well-maintained parks. Located about 20 miles north of St. Joseph MO. just off interstate I 29. From the Fillmore exit (exit 65) turn south on black top for 1/16 of a mile, take a right on to a dirt rd for 9/16 of a mile to entrance on left.

Noteworthy: Horseback riding is not allowed during the spring turkey season or during the time frame of October 15 to January (deer season)

Because of the park's location and its equine camping facilities it is an ideal over night stop for any one in transit. No corrals, only solid tie post.

Trail condition: There are more then enough trails to keep even the most serous rider entertained. Trail condition over all are excellent. There are a few short patches, of up hilly grade, that tend to be rocky, but nothing the average unshod horse can't handle.
I do not recommend riding after a hard rain. The adjective slippery doesn't even begin to describe the footing.

There are numerous lakes and creeks along the trails that are easily accessible which can provide drinking water for your horse. And that is pretty much it! You will need to bring containerize water for you and your horse for use in camp and for human consumption out on the trail. With in a mile or so there is a really nice truck stop/ deli / convenience store where you can stock up on water just before you turn in to the campground.
It is located at the top of the Fillmore exit (exit 65) where you turn off 29 to Honey Creek campground.
