Southwest of St. Louis and west of Potosi, the Berryman National Recreation Trail is a wooded 24 mile hiking loop in the Ozarks. Many feel this is the best trail between the Rockies and Alleghenies. The route snakes through 100 feet maples, clinges to ridgelines and passes above deep hollows. It is shared with mountain bikers.

To reach the trailhead from St. Louis, head south on US55 to US67. Head south on US67 to Desloge. Proceed west on SR8 through Potosi. About 16 miles west of Potosi, turn right heading north on CS207 for 1.2 miles to trail intersection.

Overall, Berryman Trail is the 2nd most popular hiking trail of all 21 hikes in Missouri. Several of the better hiking trails are nearby Berryman Trail including Taum Sauk, Whites Creek Trail, Big Piney Trail, Kaintuck Hollow Trail, Blue Ridge Trail and Eleven Point River Trail.
