  • We enjoy sunrises here coming over the community of Branson most any time of year, and the glimpses of Christmas drive-throughs held in nearby woods.  more »
  • My son and I decided to stop and walk the trails. It was a pleasant day and we enjoyed being outdoors and away from the crowds. We took the short loop since we hadn't brought good hiking shoes and far...  more »

  • Nice walking trails. The south end has a nice short trail going to an observation tower. Good views of the old celebration city site and the surrounding hills.
  • Really great place close to town and other attractions so it's easy to take a quick detour and stop by. Lots of great views from a multitude of areas. Lots of spaces to park so you'll never be searching. A couple trails connected to the area so you can expand a little bit and see more.
  • We come here every time we are in Branson for the numerous trails and great views. Our kids love hiking and there's maps along the way to help guide you. Great place to enjoy the natural beauty of the Ozarks.
  • A wonderfully rugged, diverse place to hike to get into nature in a delightful contrast to the facade of glitz characteristic of Branson. Sometimes we dont even see another person on these quiet adventuresome trails. Mostly woods with open glades, a variety of climate zones and flat to steep terrain. Beautiful streams most of time.As the seasons change the area takes on a completely different look each time you visit. We park on the lower side on Church road. TAKE WATER, sturdy shoes and snacks. The entire trail system loop takes us almost 3 hours.
  • I always enjoy hiking these trails. The first trail as you pull in is paved and easy to navigate although it's up hill going up to the tower. Climbing the tower is a treat and a good view of Branson. The other trails are very wonderful, but you need to navigate a few obstacles along the way.

Where to stay in Branson

Packed with good-value motel rooms, Branson offers decent accommodations at affordable prices even during the height of the tourist season. If you've come to enjoy the views of the Ozarks, look for vacation rental cabins, many of which are available on a nightly basis. A short drive out of town, most two- or three-bedroom cabins offer free Wi-Fi and fully equipped kitchens, along with access to enclosed yards ideal for hosting small parties. To stay in town without breaking the bank, look for mid-range hotels near Highway 76.
