    White River Valley Trail - Branson, MO

    I will be in Branson this weekend for a wedding and would like to ride this trail. The weather forecast, however, looks pretty rainy. How well does this trail drain? Should it be avoided when it's wet?

    Thanks.

    I will be in Branson in late August. I read on one review that parts of the trail system close for hunting season. Is there any hunting season the last week of August?

    You should be good to go. Even when the closure is in effect, there's still a lot of trail you can ride.
    What, me hurry?

    The fall hunting seasons don't begin until September/October. The whole trail should be open. As a FYI when they close sections it is all of orange, green, and section of blue. I was kinda bummed when I went down in the fall one year and found those sections closed. Riding the red and blue both directions made up for it.

    Thanks. I'm coming 675 miles (from Wisconsin), so if there isn't good riding, I don't want to schelp along the mountain bike on a family vacation.

    How long is the whole trail?

    10ish or so. Not really technically challenging but I find it to be a lot of fun.

    edit: my last mapmyride log on white river riding all loops was 11.49 miles total distance.

    It's a great mountain bike trail - I rode it back in June and had a great time - you can't beat the location - right there practically on the outskirts of town. Always nice to have a great trail right there where you don't have to drive an hour away - you can get a quick ride in and be back to enjoy the rest of what Branson has to offer.

    Plus - it is a great way to help stave off the pounds from eating at the Grand Country Buffet. LOL.
    I don't use Strava. Don't need an application to tell me I am slow because I already know.

    if you are only staying in the Branson area, it's great riding. If you will be headed towards Springfield I would suggest Two Rivers Bike Park. I will be open as of this weekend.

    Just staying in Branson. But, if it is close to where I am staying maybe I can hit up the trail in the early AM while everybody else is sleeping

    I will pack the bike and gear.

    Depending on where in Branson you are it's a 30 to 45 minute drive.
