    the beginning of the Ozark Trail at Onondaga Cave to the Berryman Loop and back, this makes a popsicle of about 66 miles total. you can park a car cheaply at Missouri Outdoors just past the state park.

    Council Bluff Lake parking lot to Hwy 8. this is the complete TaumSauk section- this is about 46 miles and rugged but a very pretty section. Going out you could do the Bell Mountain loop to add 6-7 miles

    Ive heard they are starting to look for that now.
    Where is this posted? I've been down there 5 times in the last couple of years and have not seen anything on this.

    Skygzr, any other mizzou hangers know anything about this?

    I had heard this second hand as well, but have never run across anyone enforcing it and can't find it in any of the rules. It is a good thing as 3" straps are not commonly made and would be VERY heavy !

    So, it looks like the 3" rule is just in the state parks and not in the NF or on the OT. The weight probably wouldn't be an issue as there's not a lot of backpacking in the State Parks.

    As an aside, we camped at Taum Sauk Mtn. this spring and didn't have a problem with our regular straps. Didn't know about the rule, Didn't see a ranger either.
