This easy-to-follow trail takes you gradually, but rather relentlessly, up to the top of Hare Mountain, the highest point on the Ozark Highlands Trail. The views are incredible! A short detour will take you to an old homesite.

Every time I hike a little part of the OHT, I think "what a lovely stretch of trail." This portion is no exception. The views as you head up the mountain just get more spectacular. On the Spring day when I visited, the wildflowers and butterflies were going like gangbusters. The old chimney and well at the homesite are neat, and worth the very short detour to check them out.
You do go UP, though fairly gradually. And then it's all downhill to get back to the trailhead!
