Went in the morning in late August, lots of spider webs and mosquitoes, be sure to remember bug spray in the summer. Trail was pretty well marked, easy loop. Nothing spectacular, just a nice forest walk, was hoping for a bit more scenic views. Had some dried creek beds, probably has more water in different seasons. Was quiet, didn't see anyone other than in the parking lot. Ok trail but would try to find something with a lake view if we went back again.

What a wonderful place to hike! Water, bluffs, forest, glades-what more could you ask for?? Plus you can connect to other trails!

Awesome trail! I did nearly all sections and well marked. Connections can be a little tricky but will this app I had no problems.

Visiting Branson we found this good trail system and decided we like it better than the strip, lol. Some nice rock outcroppings and decent fall foliage

The trail is awesome. Great for trail running. Ran it this morning for the first time, loved it. know doesn't say anything about trail running, but it should be added.

great trail, well marked and beautiful scenery! this has been my favorite trail in the area!

Extremely clean, was out all day and saw one piece of trash. The trails are beautiful and vary in difficulty. There's a great waterfall on the blue loop. Loved this trail and will definitely return.

Nice scenery. Not too crowded, went during off season for Branson.

Good combination of rugged and smooth trails, with moderate changes in elevation. It’s true that sometimes the road is nearby, but these trails offer a little bit of wilderness without a long drive. My dog and I ran 6+ miles with only overlapping a short distance on a connector trail. Would definitely run again.

The trails and intersections were very clearly marked. Spend a few minutes looking at the map before you leave to make sure you know exactly which route you want to take. Quite a few different options.

Really beautiful trails and very well marked. We went with some friends today so it was a total of 4 adults, 4 kids, and a dog. We had no issues with it at all.

There were a good amount of bikers and trail runners there too.

We’ll for sure be back!

Good trails just nothing exciting. Some views of the lake but from very remote and very few spots. Really no bouldering or climbing that we saw

Very well marked thats close to home so if I don’t have much time I’ll hike this in less than an hour at a fast walk.

I only hiked the Red trail. It was well marked and a well worn trail with very little chance of getting lost. Although I didn't see any bikers on my hike, it is shared with them so be aware. I did see other hikers. I like to avoid trails near highways due to traffic noise. I go out in the woods to listen to the sounds of nature and to escape city and traffic noise so this was not a trail for me. I would imagine the trails leading further away from the highway would be devoid of traffic noise. That being said, this would be a nice trail for those who want a leisurely walk through some woods.

Only had a chance to ride the red trail and part of the blue trail. There were rocky sections that made it challenging and it seems like the blue trail was uphill the entire time. The trails are well marked and well maintained. Had a really good time and workout and suggest that you have some mountain biking experience or plan to walk over some of the tougher rocky sections.

For mountain biking the trail is probably more advanced than its moderate rating. There are some pretty rocky climbs but a good mixture of dirt single track and rocky down hills. Over all a pretty challenging course.

My wife and I spent an enjoyable time on the red trail. Well maintained and we even got to see a few trees showing off their fall colors. Another two weeks or so and it will be full-blown leaf peeping!

very nice trail for a stroll through the woods.

Nice trail with a mix of rock and dirt surfaces and elevation changes. We combined it with with half of the Blue trail for a 7 mile hike.

Great trail and you have options on how long you would like to make your trip

This hike includes all of the loops in the White River Trail System. It is a nice hike and there are a few hills but nothing too difficult for the area. It passes though a few glades and power lines, forest and crosses a few roads. It was an awesome hike and with the connector trails is about 11.5 miles. I have seen 3 deer on this trail, that was a nice highlight.

This trail was fun and had varying degrees of difficulty -ranging from easy to moderate. The trail offers "easy" and "advanced" options...with the advanced options simply being a little bit more rocky terrain. We took one of the connector loops and came across the rock bridge...which was great. The trail goes through forests, small fields, and does not have any steep climbs or slopes so overall I'd rate it an easy trail.

Family fun! Neatly marked.

Nice walk, well marked.

My favorite trail locally !

not crowded, good variety of easy terrain, gorgeous vegetation; decent, clean bathroom at trail head

was ok, very muddy.

Loved this trail. Do take the adventure/ difficult loops. Best scenery and not that hard. Good birdwatching especially woodpeckers.

Exactly the easy hike I was wanting today! Clearly marked, well maintained trail that runs near the river and alongside a few wonderful streams.

Nice fairly flat easy well marked trail - started at the blue loop, hit connector 4 and hiked the orange loop and then back down connector 4 to complete the entire blue loop - it was almost 7 miles total. Some good views of the dam along the way.
