I did the Big Piney two weeks ago. Had a wonderful time; but watch out for all the treefalls. A big windstorm last spring felled a LOT of trees. Trail sections that used to be straight are now S-shaped.
This weekend I'm doing Piney Creek (similar name, different location). Located about halfway between Joplin and Springfield in the Missouri Ozarks.
The road goes ever on and on Down from the door where it began. Now far ahead the Road has gone, And I must follow, if I can, Pursuing it with weary feet, Until it joins some larger way, Where many paths and errands meet. And whither then? I cannot say.
