Looks like you are near Hazel Creek around Palmer lake(Palmer Mine Dam)? That strip through the middle at one time was a favorite jeep road...
Am I close? Just off of Old highway C?

Google Palmer Lake MO and look for Palmer Mine Dam

That was a great area for "Jeepin", then the forest service shut down the roads. We did trash runs in those days and would haul trailer loads out to the dumpster in Potosi. I would bet the roads are still semi open due to atv traffic, what a shame that the area could still remain open to Jeeps. Guess maybe the locals got tired of seeing their trash hauled away.

there was definitely plenty of litter strewn about
mostly beer cans and things that had been used for target practice but were no longer recognizable.
on a positive note, at least there wasn't any massive dump piles, except for one pile of shingles that i saw on a side trail
rednecks will be rednecks, ya can't fix stupid

there was a group of international scout off-roaders there yesterday. so i guess it's not closed.
