Very nice hike with my 15 and 11 year old kiddos. Took the trail to the grotto and cave, very unique and certainly worth a couple of hours.

Trail is more moderate than easy, due to the rocks mainly. My husband and I, along with our 9 year old son, completed this hike in about an hour and half. Had a little scare when we had to maneuver around a rattlesnake but overall it was a great hike.

My husband and I, along with our 9 year old son, hiked this trail in about 2 hours. Taking numerous stops to admire various beauties of nature, especially the Owen's homestead.

Difficult and hot trail, but great views!

We entered at the north trail head, off of Sycamore church road. Enjoyed the trail. It was very well marked along the trail itself. That being said it seemed a little silly to have the big conservation sign at the head of a trail, that dead ends. It was misleading, we actually started down this trail at first. There was a smaller sign explaining that the actual trail head was on the other side of the bridge. No big deal, it can just mislead you if your not paying attention. I would definitely recommend this trail for a nice 2 or 3 hour day hike.

Awesome trail - great for our family. Loved the caves, steps and wildlife. The grotto was definitely the highlight!

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

Awesome trail. Be in shape if you walk the cliff trail. Great scenery, take pictures.

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.

I’ve been to Branson many times, but this jewel of a trail is hidden in plain sight. Amazingly, it’s just south of 76 at Falls Creek Rd. I’m too embarrassed to say how many times I’ve passed the parking lot without noticing the trailhead. A must stop for all hikers from beginners to old trail hounds like me. Most of the trails are easy to moderate. Very few difficult areas unless you are terribly out of shape.

I love this trail, and you'd never know it's right off the busy Branson strip. I went on a cooler July day, and there were flowers, all sorts of

Caves were a great touch. Well marked, with good inclines. Great access from Branson.

Not marked very well, but a great hike. Wanted to see the waterfall, but it was dry.

So glad we went on this trail. Views were beautiful and the caves were really amazing! I would have given it 5 stars but the trails are not marked well at all! We went off a trail and didn’t realize it for quite some time!

Enjoyable hike, several trails to choose from.

Trailer is marked very well and was a great height

It’s a short, semi-technical trail that makes for a fun run in town. Some of the back trails are single track, but the highly trafficked areas are wide and even. I’d rate it higher but there’s no access to the lake.

Our family has done this trail several times. It is our favorite in the area. It is challenging but well worth it.

Very impressed considering it was RIGHT OFF the strip. Felt secluded for the most part but we went during the week. Caves are cool and some climbing, scrambling was possible in a bunch of spots. It was way better than expected you can’t go wrong here since it’s not far off the beaten path and as accessible as you can get

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.

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

Nice little network of trails but they could use better markings. We apparently took one trail that wasn't even on the map.

Is this trail good for bikes? Thanks.

If you're looking for a simple stroll on a paved trail this is for you. View from the tower was nothing spectacular, but worth the climb. I used it as a warm-up before hitting the Glades/Homestead loop.

Love this place...gorgeous and a great workout

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.

Lots of options on this hike, you can hike through this area without taking the steps but taking the steps is an adventure. They are definitely a workout, but doable if you allow yourself to take breaks when needed. This can be a scary hike for someone afraid of heights. The views are great and this is a park that has very easy access. You'd never know you were in the middle of Branson! If this hiking area had more rails on the steps (some parts were without rails) and if the waterfall was not dried up, I would have given it a 5.
