Approach


After turning south on Highway A as described in the getting there section, quickly look for FR 2228 on the left. It should be signed for Bell Mountain. Take FR 2228 approximately 2 miles to the trailhead.

Finding this trailhead is made much easier with the use of DeLorme's Missouri Atlas & Gazetteer. A link is provided to the left.

Route Description


From the trailhead, follow the trail approximately 4 miles south to the summit of Bell Mountain. A map and compass or GPS would be helpful.

Essential Gear


Backpacking gear would make this a great overnight trip in the fall for the changing colors and star gazing at night. Avoid peak summer months to avoid heat, humidity and bugs.
