This B&B is worth the money. If you are visiting Hermann, Mo, this is where I'd stay. Super owners, clean accommodations, good food, and a pleasant atmosphere. Rick and Dianne are extremely helpful with their recommendations for area sights and eat...

I am curious: Do all the trail heads have drinking water available now? If not, which? Also, does anyone have any thoughts on other places to refill water bottles along the trail?

Went on a ride from Defiance to Treloar with some of my buddies on Saturday (the 8th) and on the way back we stopped at the Peers Store for some food. It was a nice stay, and the pulled pork BBQ sandwich I got was wonderful and nicely priced.

Just wondering if anyone has ever hiked the trail? I'm not a biker but love to long distance hike and was wondering if anyone has ever done this. Also, from my research it dosent look like there are too many camping areas.
