Ozark Chinquapin Trail winds through Elk River Breaks Natural Area for those who want to enjoy the beauty and solitude of the area. The trail follows a small bedrock stream, which is surrounded with steep hills on both sides. The trail then climbs into the upland woodlands and glades, with opportunities to see local plants and animals, and some wonderful views across the rugged Elk River landscape. Hikers can access the one-mile white connector to shorten or enhance their hike. This trail was constructed in 1996.
