The put-in is Lon Sanders Canyon Conservation Area directly north of Piedmont, MO. Take 341 (Canyon Rd) north off of hwy 34 and drive to Lon Sanders Canyon Trailhead. Hike the trail as far up as you can go to get above the “good stuff.”

The take-out is in Piedmont around the 34 bridge. I don’t know about parking but there is a Mexican place you could walk to for a post-run margarita!


If Crane Pond Creek is running, then this probably is as well. Why not go for a twofur?
