From Mexico, take Highway 22 west 5.50 miles, take Route E north 1.75 miles, then County Road 214 west 0.25 mile.
This 80 acre forest was acquired in 1979. The north ridge adjacent to the county road has numerous scattered large oaks hinting to its earlier history as a savanna. A 1969 topographic map shows it being open ground while the absence of fire in recent decades has allowed a dense stand of timber to grow.Skull Lick Creek is very sinuous with tall steep mud banks making it difficult to cross. The creek floodplain is dominated by large trees of species commonly found growing in moist fertile soils of Missouri.
