Great hike with nicely kept trails! Lots of interesting foliage to see!

Spent almost 2 hours hiking with a grandad, a adults and 2 tweens. Enjoyed the terrain and flora. Very different than what we’re accustomed to in the northeast.

Nice easy trail, although watch out for roots and rock.

It was a well marked trail and very relaxing; however, it wasn’t a moderate difficulty it was closer to an easy.

Trailer is marked very well and was a great height

Pretty scenery and the trail is easy to follow. Good parking.

Would actually call this a moderate trail. Easy in some sections more challenging in others . Great trail !!! Saw about 12 others and 2 dogs on trail today!!

Beautiful trail, upkeep is very good. Rock features are outstanding along the route. Easy to get to and great nature feel even though it's right off a busy highway in the middle of Branson. You'd never know it while on the trail.

Really enjoyed this trail! I recently got into hiking & it has became a new lifestyle that I’m loving.

Did this trail today and loved it. One of my favorites in the Branson area so far. Some ups and downs little water in the fall- being a native to Branson, I’m sure that in the spring , the water is plentiful. Being so close to tourism still heard some noise but there was a section of the 3.5 that all I heard was nature. True that it’s a moderate trail and has 14 numbered markers telling about the old homestead along the trail. Be sure to check the registry box at the trailhead for your Homestead guide. Wish there were camping on this trail!!

Lovely walk in the woods. Just what we were looking for

Nice trail and definitely can tell fall is on the way. I did Homestead trail and the Glad's trial joined together by Shane's shortcut and the stream side trail. This was 5.6 miles and a nice hike.

Enjoyable walk on a rugged/rocky trail that provided nice views.

Nice hike close to Branson. The terrain was rocky for the most part. The sounds of nature was partially interfered by the sounds of cars on the nearby highway. The landscape had a mix of the expected Ozark country interrupted by the sites of buildings from Branson. Fortunately, there are periods where you feel you left the city and made it into the country side.

Trail was awesome! Definitely a moderate trail. Great views. Next time I run I'll go to right for a different perspective. And I will run it again!

I hiked in from Treasure Island Resort Trailhead, so I only hiked the Homestead Trail (orange).
It was an awesome workout, but this trail is not easy. It has a lot of roots, rocks, inclines, and declines.
One of my favorite trails.

I did hike all the sections (4), the first section of the trail you can call easy, but for the most part, this trail has a lot of roots and rocks. Long inclines and declines.
Tree coverage, peaceful, a few people, but not too many.
I was challenged because I was expecting easy; it's more moderate to hard, so it took longer than I expected.
Trails are well marked.

Easy beautiful wide path . Homesteads , wells , creeks and crevices , right outside of town , one of my favorite trails to run !

a beautiful clean trail. gorgeous view!

Great hike! Very scenic views.

Nice mellow hike, good for kids.
You get to walk on some cool rock formations.

Nov 10 saw no water but enjoyed a nice walk. Considerable amount of uneven footing. Several steps up and down. Very rocky

Easy may be a little misleading as a descriptor for this trail. You will definitely want to wear good close toe shoes and an optional hiking stick will be useful in areas where the trail has a rugged descent. I'm glad I hiked the trail because the overlooks offer fantastic views.

Great trail to do on the fly with kids. Connected to other trails that offer more of a challenge.

Flowers are blooming

Nice along the trail are staring to bloom.

easy quick trail

I enjoy "billy goat" running on this trail. Very sunny & rocky in places, but beautiful scenery.

We did the smaller Glade trail which is a 1.7 mile loop. A very good trail. There wasn't too much wildlife or plant life to look at, so I would recommend doing it late spring or summer. Terrain is pretty easy and the trail offers a couple of overlook points into the valley. Overall a nice hour hike.
