Spy Rock Overlook out & back trail is 1.2 miles through upland Ozark forest that leads to rock outcropping/bluff overlook that opens up a view over a wide forested valley. This is a portion of the Redding/Spy rock loop trail. Taking this short portion allows those that are unable to hike the strenuous portions of the trail to see the overlook, which is the highlight of the trail

This is a short walk from the road but do yourself a favor and complete the entire trial, not just this section.

Once you get up the road to this ending section of Redding/Spyrock trail, the parking is just south of the walk- also on the west side of road. This is more a walk than a hike but the view is worth it.

The review I posted was intended for the White Rock Rim trail.

This is a fairly easy trail and, at the right time of year, spectacular. However, it can also be exceptionally dangerous as it follows the edge of cliffs for much of its length. There have been several deaths on this trail over the past thirty years from falls. Otherwise, enjoy. BTW: this plateau has a bumper crop of poison ivy.

If you can't hike the whole Redding/Spy Rock trail, this is a great alternative. Great view overlooking the valley.
