This section is located in Washington and Iron counties and lies southwest of Potosi. The northern 18 miles of trail was constructed in 1968, with the last six miles added in 1983. To the north it connects with the Courtois section, to the south the Taum Sauk section, and in between is the Middle Fork-John Roth Memorial section. The Trace Creek section is open to foot, bike and equestrian traffic. A spur trail can be found near the section's midpoint that leads to the 12-mile Council Bluff loop trail.
