Funny you should mention 160. I was just thinking about a route across southern MO and went to look up what road it is, it's 160. :lol3 Anyway, it's a nice ride between Branson and Poplar Bluff.

Suntop lookout

Does anyone know if Suntop lookout on the NE side of Rainier is free of snow? My family is coming into town this weekend and we thought we might go ride the Suntop/Skookum flats trail loop.
