The team has completed surveys of the Kaintuck Hollow Trails and have also begun surveying the Cole Creek East & West loops.
Located south of the Mill Creek Recreation Area, the Kaintuck Hollow Trails lead through a predominately oak forest with some hickory, cedar, and short leaf pine trees. At Mill Creek Recreation Area you can taste water from an artesian well or go visit Wilkins Spring Pond. A highlight in the area is a 175 foot long natural tunnel (which we elected to not to walk through because Mark Twain National Forest currently has closed all caves due to the white nose fungus affecting bats).
