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.

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

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.
