Smithville Lake - Westward Trailways

Smithville Lake offers 26 miles of horse/primitive hiking trails on the southeast side of the lake. The trail begins at Crows Creek Campground and ends in Arley, Missouri. The area features a mix of rolling and flat terrain with many creek crossings. Fields of native warm-season grasses, wildflowers and row crops are scattered among the timbered areas. The primary trailheads at Crows Nest and Jack Rabbit Bend offer ample trailer parking. Loop A at Crows Creek Campground offers electric and electric/water camping sites for equestrians. Restrooms, showers, laundry and water hydrants are conveniently located. We also offer our Pavilion that has 20 stalls available for rental for overnight.
