Paved trail with much of it in shade. I really enjoyed the Dewey Short Visitor Center by the dam. I parked at Showboat Branson Belle parking lot and walked toward the dam. .8 miles then back. I also went the other direction toward another state park area which is also .8 miles. This trail is in sections with many benches to sit and enjoy the view. I use the restrooms at showboat park area but there are outhouse type restrooms at each of the Missouri state park areas. I love this trail and will do the entire beautiful walk He next time I am in town.

Lots of stairs up front, but a great view of some rock formations and bluffs!

This was a beautiful trail, easy to find off the Buffalo River parking lot. The whole trail is in the woods and shady and it circles and goes though beautiful rock formations you can climb on or between. There is some incline to give it some difficulty, but overall I’d love to return with my kids! Beware poison ivy and ticks.

This is a great hike to take with kids! Lots to see and scramble on. This route has a connection that leads to the hatchery, deer leap trail, fire tower trail or river trail, so using the connections helps in finding the distance you want.

Wife and I just walked this on vacation. I wouldn’t call it a hike as much as a walk. Big hilly sections though. My suggestion when you get to the loop... go right. The pools in the picture were more the creek outside the trail though not in the trail.

Great trail for the whole family!

Cool breeze coming off the lake while we walked on the paved trail. Very easy .

Good quick trip in the woods. Gets the heart beating with elevation changes. Well marked and easy to follow

Beautiful and well maintained trail. Access from 6 am to 10 pm. Very enjoyable!

My mother played at the natural bridge as a young child and I went to photograph it to give her a childhood reminder. I took a right at the fork and it was a beautiful hike. I do believe it was more than the advertised mile. The bridge is spectacular!!! I got to the parking lot a little after daybreak (a bit late for me) and was at the bridge by 6:30am.
I could not find the path to the top so that is for a different time. Didn't want to hike the trail back so I walked the creek to a point where I could get back on the path quite a way back. This place is gorgeous and I love what has been created for our enjoyment!

just a walk upstairs to other trails not a true hike. But a great outlook to see the hatchery from above if that is what you are interested in.

It was a fun trail but more of just a walk with stairs. I wouldn't classify it as a true trail to hike. Close to the hwy so I could hear traffic. Took away from my purpose for being out in nature.

Nice paved easy trail.

The Clifty Creek Conservation Area is a stop on the Great Missouri Birding Trail and it is definitely a "birdy" trail, although you will have to mostly bird by ear during the summer. The trail mostly follows ridges and overlooks the creek below and the valley the creek flows through. The trail crosses the creek twice so be prepared to get your feet wet. The natural arch is spectacular. If you go through the arch there is another side trail on the left that will allow you to climb to the top of the arch. A recent thunderstorm had dropped a few large branches and trees on the trail but you can get around them easily.

A very easy all paved trail from the Table Rock lake dam to the state park marina. 4.4 miles round trip. It has several access points to the lake and lots of places to stop and rest or reflect along the way. Hikers of all levels will enjoy this easy route.

A beautiful trail. A bit challenging with small kids, but still able to go. My family will be back!

This is an awesome hike! My wife and I were the only people on the trail, and we even crossed the creek after a few days of rain without issue. I recommend this to anybody looking to stretch their legs and escape the surrounding area for a short time.

a nice easy walk to start the day

Short trail but nice overlook to the hatchery. This trail does split off to the Fire Tower Trail so did them both.

Nice overall hike. Bit of a steep climb early on. The trail does run parallel to the road for a stretch so the sound of the cars took away from feeling out in nature. Other trails in the area making it easy to do several while you are out there. Be prepared to fight for parking with people fishing if you go on the weekends during season.

Yes, I will run it again.

Awesome hike. The land bridge makes this well worth it, but hiking along the low river was also nice. There would be difficult areas to cross the river after heavy rainfall, but this is an exemplary short hike.

Great paved trail. We had the little niece and nephews with us and they could easily walk it with us.

Nice paved trail along Table Rock Lake.

Fast, flat, and wide asphalt path that follows the edge of the lake under the canopy of shady trees. Plenty of shoot offs that lead to the lake to dip your feet or paws into afterward.

Great paved trail. Took my five month old son and his stroller through the whole thing. The lake view is amazing too. Very easy!

Cool little trail. You can do the whole trail system here looping back to the Cave, which is also neat. Loved it!

First time at this park/on this trail. REALLY enjoyed the interesting features, esp the small waterfall. This is an out-and-back trail, and I connected to Loutre River Trail from the camping check-in area. That TH sign is a little hard to spot, it doesn't look like the other, larger TH signs. Spotted 3 deer.

A very well kept paved walking trail. Given this isn't a real hike, we made it a 4.5 mile evening walk enjoying the lake, trees, and sunset.

Beautiful area. Frequently patrolled and safe. Great family campground.
