Brush Creek trailhead of the OHT is just past this sign

Directions - You'll see the brown and white sign announcing the Ozark Highlands Trail Brush Creek Trailhead. Parking is right off the highway on your right. Trail goes in both directions. Take short walks or hike to other trailheads. Good parking, and a good place to start/end day hikes.

Take the trail on the parking lot side ( south)and you end up at the trailhead on Cripple Turkey Road (Point 31) in 3.5 miles. Moccasin Springs OHT trailhead is 9 miles further from the Cripple Turkey trailhead.

Cross Hwy 341 and hiking north takes you to Point 37 at Twin Creeks parking lot in about 3 miles. It is an easy 3 miles, but the last two miles get steep in places. It is easier to hike from Brush Creek down to Twin Creeks Point 37, not the other way.

About Brush Creek Road - At Point 33 you'll also find Brush Creek Road, aka FSR 1116. It's back down Hwy 341 about 100 feet and across the highway from the trailhead. This is the northern boundary of the Leatherwood Wilderness Area. At this time Brush Creek is NOT approved for ATV use. While you can drive it in a car, the road is narrow and somewhat rough. It runs 9.5 miles and dead ends at Cleveland Knob. About 8 miles in, the road takes a sharp turn to the right. In this turn, off to the left, is what used to be a parking lot for a trail. You'll see the old sign marquee there. This trail is no longer used or maintained and has grown in. Narrow and rougher after this point, Brush Creek Road dead ends up on Cleveland Knob about 1.5 miles from the old trail sign. There is nothing on the knob, but you can get good cell signal there. Years ago Cleveland Knob was another fire tower site.
