Starting Location: Lost Valley Hiking Trail, Lost Valley Trail, Defiance, MO 63341
Parking: Coming from highway 40/64 you will take hwy 94 South roughly 6 miles or so and the parking lot will be on your right, just after you go by a police training center. It's a gravel lot.
This will be relatively easy for most of it from a technical stand point. After about 3/4 of a mile into the run we will get on more single track trail which goes for a little over a mile worth before opening up into a grass field and then back on to the old fire road which is gravel. The single track trail will be moderately technical and potential for a creek crossing pending on water level. Once out of the woods we will follow the trail through the grass with the power lines till rejoining the gravel road, make a left turn here and we will simply follow this path all the way back down to where we started. Once you get to the top of this long gradual climb it levels out a bit, and then our final 2 miles of the course is all down hill and flat, yay!
