3.5 3-4 hours Moderate This scenic loop trail is located on a peninsula of land that is surrounded by three different streams, (Baker Creek, Harris Creek, and the Cossatot River). The trail is divided into 6 different ecological zones. The trail head is located at an old shale pit and then enters a shale glade area next to Baker Creek. A number of interesting flowering plants can be found in these areas before the trail enters the mature forest. Once you have moved through the glade site you walk parallel to Baker Creek for approximately a ½ mile, to the confluence of Baker Creek and Harris Creek after which the trail is named. You then turn southwest and then eventually west and hike above an alluvial terrace formed by Harris Creek. This terrace was farmed and grazed as recently as the 1930’s. After leaving the terrace area you enter a drainage area that is the roughest and steepest part of the trail. It goes westward and then makes a sharp turn south paralleling Harris Creek once again. Heading south, Harris Creek can be observed from a bluff. This area is dominated by mature black and post oak. Eventually the trail heads westward toward the Cossatot River and enters a mature shortleaf pine/hardwood forest and the last ecological zone. Once you leave the drainage area you will hike the last leg of the trail on an old road bed that will take you by an overlook that will give you a grand view of the Cossatot River some 150’ below. After leaving the over look you will hike the last 1.25 miles along the same old road bed under the cover of the mature shortleaf pine/Hardwood Forest. The trail will end up back at the parking lot. -1 0 0 0 0 F-2 At Visitor Center Howard

The 5-mile War Eagle Loop Traverses steep terrain and provides some grat view of War Eagle Creek and historic War Eagle Valley. Two other 3-mile loops are available, with a 1/2-mile access spur and parking at the Piney Road Trail Access. Both the Bay Shores Loop and Dutton Hollow Loop follow up and down the ridges and hollows of the Blackburn Creek region of the park. Both loops can be covered individually or joined together for a 7-mile trip. Though a spur trail, the Bay Shores Loop provides access to Beaver Lake. The entire multi-use trail network provides an incredible diversity of the Ozark region and a great representation of the natural communities and micro-hbitats of the park. In late-2008 a trail spur will provide access to the park's new visitor education center.

8.5 4-10 hours Moderate-Strenuous The trailhead parking lot is located on the north side of State 12, about 1 mile east of the State 303 south turnoff. It is adjacent to the Park Ranger’s residence drive; there is a large mailbox on the highway. Park vehicles straight ahead off the highway, to the left of the gate.
This trail is a double stacked-loop trail; there is a short loop of approximately 4 miles for day hiking and a longer loop of 8.5 miles for overnight use. Camping is allowed on the longer loop at five designated campsites only. These campsites, on a ridge overlooking Beaver Lake, are available on a first-come basis. Please contact the Ranger at the phone number listed above to determine if there will be a campsite available.
The trail is fairly short for an overnight trail, but there are several hills to climb which give the trail its difficulty rating. From the parking lot, the trail begins straight ahead down the ridgeline. This is an access spur which follows the ridgeline for about 1/2 mile, then drops off the ridge to the west to the bottom of a hollow where it intersects with the loop. At this point, you can go either left or right; however, the hiking is a bit easier if you take the left fork. The trail winds through narrow hollows and up and along rugged ridges. It travels through stands of native pines, hardwoods, and typical Ozark vegetation. During leaf-off, there are several locations which offer great views of the Van Hollow branch of Beaver Lake.
