I had the privilege today of working with 3 other members of the Ozark Highlands Trail Association to clear the trail from Indian Creek to the Lick Branch trail head. It was in pretty good shape with only 3 trees down on the trail and very minor brush.
This section of the trail includes the Marinoni Scenic Area. There was a bit of water flowing in Briar Branch but not enough to be photogenic. Indian Creek and Herrods Creek were dry, which is apparently pretty typical this time of year.
