Many people are coming to Branson Missouri not only because it is the Live Music Show Capital of the World, but because Branson has beautiful surrounding lakes and breath taking Ozark hills. There are several hiking trails in the Branson area for you to enjoy. Here are just a few of our favorites, but give us a call for more local advice on Branson hiking.
Bull Shoals Hiking Trails
The Dogwood Trail, located in Lakeview Park, is the only hiking trail on Corps of Engineers land around Bull Shoals Lake. The trail is 3 miles round trip and rated as moderately difficult. Bull Shoals State Park also offers two trails. The Big Bluff Trail offers scenic views of the White River below Bull Shoals Dam and is 1.5 miles long and rated as easy. The Lakeside Trail winds along the shore of Bull Shoals Lake and is 1 mile long and rated as easy.
Dogwood Canyon Nature Park
The round-trip paved trail covers 6 miles and is relatively level. It guides you past beautiful limestone bluffs and tumbling waterfalls, over bridges formed of native stone or hand-crafted of wrought iron, and even a covered bridge of Amish construction. The beautiful rainbow trout swim in clear spring-fed waters, easily visible as you pass by. It is a wilderness park and you may expect to see a variety of native wildlife, your best chance being earlier in the morning.

This beautiful trail is 2.2 miles long and runs from the Dewey Short Visitor Center toTable Rock State Park Marina. Persons using the trail in the spring will view dogwood, serviceberry and redbud trees in bloom as well as many wildflower species.
