Ginger on the yellow trail at Busiek
The trails at Busiek are typical of the rough trails that can be found in the Ozarks, lots of loose sharp rocks. As horses use the trails at Busiek they are rougher than they'd be if there was foot traffic only. It's not a problem, but it certainly makes the trails more challenging.
I say the rocks are sharp, on Monday I extracted a quarter inch razor sharp shard from my shoe. It's making me re-think how thick I want the soles of my huaraches to be. It's certainly not good ground for Vibram five fingers, though I have worn them on the trail here.
