This 2.5 mile loop trail goes through native Missouri woodlands to bluff tops above the lake and back through drainages to its origin. The trail also passes near a small family cemetery. The spring and fall seasons are best for spring flowering dogwoods and redbuds and fall leave color.

It was alright... Nothing extreme and beautiful woods. All good views are obstructed. However it connects to the Squaws Revenge trail which has amazing views.

A very fun trail full of all sorts of great views in the early spring, fall and winter. A few elevation changes but nothing difficult. A fun, quick hike.

The trail was easy to follow, but the view of the lake was absolutely horrible, blocked by trees. The whole trail was sandy, and covered in horse poop and giant spider webs. We had to get sticks to wave in front of us, because of how many times we were hit right in the face by a cob web accompanied by a spider. Maybe a better trail to do in the winter, when spiders are dead, and it isn't too hot. We went in mid-July.

Great hike! Beautiful views, path is great (remembering that you are in the ozark mountains and there are going to be some rocks)... Just long enough and hilly enough to provide you with a nice workout. We loved it!

Nice trail with good views. The only downside was that there were large rocks on the trail (which is to be expected in November), but you can't see them because of the amount of leaves. I rolled my ankle a few times, but luckily didn't sprain anything.

We did this very easy hike Nov 2015. The overlooks to the lake were beautiful. We also found ourselves less than ten feet away from five large buzzards/vultures/not really sure. They were beautiful, not what one would imagine when confronted with scavenger birds. The trail was, obviously since it was fall, covered in a thick carpet of leaves. There was also copious amounts of horse poo. Walk carefully. Overall, a fun, easy hike for a brisk fall day.

We try and get over to the park as often as possible. Easy trails to walk, great picture oppertunities.

We did the trail during a trail ride in the spring. It was a pleasant and typical Ozark trail through timber, small dry weather creeks and along some hill tops. Over to quick.

Lake of the Ozarks is an Old and popular fishing and recreational boating destination. Offers all the amenities. Busy on weekends. Unlimited places to go, large lake.
