okay i've been a long time camper and now i've been a serious backpacker ( which led to hammocker) for about a year now. although just recently i came across the ozark trail here in missouri. planning a hike with a buddy from the north bell trailhead, down through bell mountain area, and pull out at the hwy J trailhead which is supposedly some 40 miles southwest by trail. really just wondering if anyone has hiked this region of the trail. any tips for this hike or the OT in general?
