Founded by Waylon & Sabra Scudder from Arkansas who had been coming to the Cross Country Trail Ride in Eminence for over 24 years. CCTR has been drawing in people from all over the United States for the past 61 years. It is a fully organized ride with three meals a day, live bands and dances nightly & a concert from a country music performer one night during the ride, such as George Jones, Low Cash Cowboys, Billy Ray Cyrus, Mark Wills & many others. www.crosscountrytrailrides.com
Waylon, Sabra, and their son Gage never left the trail ride except to float the Jacks Fork and Current rivers, run to the gas station, local grocery store, or Dollar General so they never really knew about all of the beautiful, local places to visit. After becoming really good friends with a local couple living in the area, they started coming to stay with them and they took Waylon and Sabra to the most beautiful sights that they had ever seen. Even after looking at well over a hundred farms from east Arkansas all the way to the east coast they found and fell in love with the old 73 acre Shawnee Creek Mahan farm in Eminence. By herself, Sabra moved everything they owned to Missouri in Feburary of 2015 while Waylon was deployed in Afghanistan. They decided that they were going to find a way to share all of the beauty with everyone that they possibly could. Since UTV's, horses and hiking are more common ways of transportation in Eminence, they decided to utilize what brings many people to this part of the country. Being that their ranch is nestled directly in the center of the Ozark National Scenic Riverways, they have decided to use it as the foundation to build what they hope will become the largest outdoor full service recreational company in all surrounding states.
