Moccasin Gap Trails

Sunday, March 26, 2017

Alt Names

Black Oak Ridge, Gap Hollow, Mitchell Point, High Mountain Loop, Ozark National Forest, Stave Mill Falls, Moccasin Gap Campground, Big Piney Ranger District, Treat Road Staging Area

Last Known StatusOpen

Located right across the street from Mack's Pines, this multiple-use trail system offers around 30+ miles of moderately challenging trails, scenic vistas, seasonal stream crossings and a few waterfalls. Trails are marked, color coded and form long loops.

The trail system was originally designed for horseback riders but motorized use is permitted. The trails are open year-round but visitors are advised to wear blaze orange vests during hunting season (usually around mid November and in April).

Camping can be found at Moccasin Gap Campground. Amenities include water pumps (during summer and fall months), a solar powered shower, fire rings and trash cans. Additional parking can be found off Treat Road, which has enough room to accomodate ten vehicles.
