This area is an appealing stop for hiking, horseback riding or biking. The seven-mile multi-use trail takes outdoor adventurers over the area’s namesake, Little Lost Creek.
This partially spring-fed Ozark stream is characterized by clear water and a rocky stream bed. Brilliantly colored Ozark fish species such as bleeding shiners, southern red belly dace and stippled darters, are found in the stream. Woodland wildlife, such as deer, turkey, squirrels, and ruffed grouse are year-round residents.
Other sights in this mostly forested area are scattered glades, savannas and fields. Little Lost Creek Conservation Area can be reached from I-70 west of Warrenton by taking either Route B five miles south of Pendleton, or Route EE four miles south of Pendleton.
