Spy Rock Overlook out & back trail is 1.2 miles through upland Ozark forest that leads to rock outcropping/bluff overlook that opens up a view over a wide forested valley. This is a portion of the Redding/Spy rock loop trail. Taking this short portion allows those that are unable to hike the strenuous portions of the trail to see the overlook, which is the highlight of the trail

I'm not sure why the AllTrails app started at EL 1436 ft for the return trip to trail head at the county road. There is not 256 feet of elevation change from the road to the high point just east of the overlook. For the Overlook Trail, parking is minimal to non-existent. We parked along the shoulder at a wide spot in the road just north of the trail head sign. The overlook view will be great in the Fall if there is color.

A short walk through the woods to see some beautiful sights. It's a perfect spot to set back, relax, and just enjoy what nature has to offer.
I will definitely be going back, with a better camera next time!

This is a short walk from the road but do yourself a favor and complete the entire trial, not just this section.

Once you get up the road to this ending section of Redding/Spyrock trail, the parking is just south of the walk- also on the west side of road. This is more a walk than a hike but the view is worth it.

If you can't hike the whole Redding/Spy Rock trail, this is a great alternative. Great view overlooking the valley.
