On the Jodebo Road end there is parking for a few cars. A second (and larger) parking place is off US 64. Take US 64 south from Cleveland to E. Cedar Creek Drive (N3670 Rd.); turn left (north). Right after you cross the trail, parking is on the right.
The highlight of this Trail is the abandoned trestle bridge over the Arkansas River on the north end. It spans high above the river with no barriers or rails Danger!! Beautiful Walk after a ride if you aren't afraid of heights. The Trail is asphalt but very rough, especially south and locals do NOT know how great the Trail is as dog droppings are everywhere.
"July 7, 2005: Short but interesting. We started at the Cleveland Trailhead which gave us the best of the trail. First railroad bridge is paved with a railing on both sides. The second railroad bridge was another story and could have been fatal! It is the original bridge without the rails. You can ride on closely spaced ties without any railings. I went a little way out and decided it wasn't for me. Very difficult to stop and turn around as the front wheel can fall between the ties if you aren't careful - without railings this was frightening. My decision to turn back was wise because a locl told me later that people have been stealing ties from the Osage end of the bridge! I didn't actually see the missing ties and for that I'm thankful. It would have been a disaster to ride into an open section!
The trail was a nice short ride through varied landscape but don't cross the second bridge when you come to it!"
This is a nice trail. Two side runs to the water. The first bridge was great but the second needs some work.
