White River Valley Trail System is a 2.9 mile loop trail located near Branson, MO and is rated as difficult. The trail is primarily used for hiking and mountain biking and is accessible from April until September.
Good, well-kept trail but I expected better views.
We rode mountain bikes for the entire trail system which totaled about 12 miles. We started on the red trail and just kept taking lefts every time the trail forked. It was a great trail system. Good mix of climbs, downhills, and technical sections. The added bonus was the pretty scenery of the Branson hills. We will definitely be coming back!
Good trail. Do not believe the sign that says the red loop is 2.5 miles. It's longer than that. Closer to 3.2. My kids liked it, but started complaining towards the last 1/4 mile that it was too long. But other than that it was good. Also the trailhead is not where the indicated pin is on the app. It's further down the road. Look for the signs that say trailhead.
loved all the loops in the orange loop a primitive cabin and root cellar. great views. good climbs. I have mountain biked these as well. a little challenging as the trails are not well maintained. be prepared to hike bike in a few places if your not a advanced rider.
Advanced trails were not very advanced, but it was a nice, easy-going outing. Took about an hour to an hour and a half to complete the red trail.
Nice trail...canopied, rocky, moderate hills. Ran the red loop
We started at the Red loop and enjoyed the beautiful trail through the woods, but beware that the mosquitos are thick at this time (June) If it weren't for the that we would have went further, but the part that we did hike was beautiful. Easy enough as well for our kids to enjoy.
Blue Loop was awesome and well-marked!
Trail was good. Starts off really easy and then you mixes things up. A variety of gravel, mud, rocks surfaces. If you are looking for something fairly simple with a little variety this is a good trail. Took us an hour and 20 min but we stopped for pictures.
It was very easy trail. I am 71 yrs of age and I hiked 7 miles on this trail. It was spring an things are just blooming. Just a comfortable hike the weather was in the 70's beautiful day for hiking. Little to no gain, nice flat trail need no poles. Recommend to all ages.
Completed the Red loop today. The entrance to the trail head is approximately across the road from the entrance to the Branson Belle. We walked a normal to quick pace and finished the 2.9 mile hike in 1 hour. Enjoyable terrain with slight hills, wide paths and tree covered throughout. There is a nice stream to walk along and many tall pines. It is popular with mountain bikers so be prepared to yield from time to time. FYI - The map for the Red Loop path found mounted at the trail head entrance does not match the map of the trail head location on this website map. All in all it is a nice one hour walk in the woods.
Easy trail, very peaceful and great scenery.
Average trail system. Not a lot to look at and a lot of hills.
Completed Red Loop, Green Loop, Orange Loop, and most of Blue Loop before running out of daylight. Blue Loop had the most diversity IMO, with some nice overlooks and views of the river/Lake Taneycomo. Orange Loop had some potential for interesting waterfalls, but the streams were dry. Plan on hitting them again in the spring.
My wife and I did the blue loop which had a good variety of inclines,declines,and that goodness flat areas with a combination of rocks, dirt, and brush.
It was fun. The red trail, according to my Fitbit, was about 3.5 miles and not 2.5, but who knows how accurate that is. Was slightly challenging but was beautiful and full of trees and rocks and all things trail related. I enjoyed it.
