The Fawn's Ridge trail is 1.25 miles winding through wooded hills and valleys typical of the Ozark hill country. This trail has two sections. A level .6 mile, linear section runs from the campground check stand to the picnic area along Highway 134, and is accessible to wheelchairs. Pleasant views of the dry-mesic chert woodlands found throughout the park can be viewed along this section of the trail. The trail veers off to make an additional .6-mile loop, winding along wooded slopes and ending at the campground check stand. If you start at the trailhead along highway 134, this loop trail is approximately 1.25 mile long. If you start at the trailhead at the campground check stand, this loop trail is approximately one mile long. If you want to make your hike longer, a short .20-mile white connector trail joins this trail to White Oak Trail. This connector trail is marked with white blazes.
Enjoyable hike with my wife and puppy. We didn't see anyone else on the trail. There are definitely better trails around here, but this is worth while for "warming up". We walked this and then went into the Lakeview Bend Trail. Nice day.
Pleasant little hike through the woods. Nice trail. saw a lot of wildlife. Not overgrown.
