Question Walking and Hiking Trails

As many times as we have been to the Branson area we have never taken the time to find the local walking or hiking trails. Could someone please fill us in on their names and locations. Seems like one is just outside of Branson, the Paul Henning Nature Trail. but I may be wrong. My wife and I are beginning to see the need to walk to stay fit, but don't like to walk along streets or highways. We both like nature and like to be in it when we exercise. So if there are nature trails or walks available in the Branson area we can carry that activity with us.

Thank You

We can not wait for our first spring here to explorer various areas of Mark Twain National Forest. You may want to check their website to get information about trails etc.

You can find the Lakeside walking trail off of Fall Creek Road. The turn into the Wilderness Area is not far off 76 Higway on Fall Creek Road. Henning walking trail is located off of 76 highway on the way to SDC. It is not far from Shepherd of the Hills theater. You can also walk along Lake Taneycomo. There is a small picnic area by the fishery. The trail winds eastward. Very nice with great photo ops. Fly.

I don't have an answer for you for permanent waterfalls, sorry. When it rains or as the snow melts you can find alot of small waterfalls off of the rocks and cliffs. Particularly around the Shepherd of the Hills Expressway Cliffs just past B.T. Bones or on Roarke Valley Rd. I would imagine there are some around, I just haven't seen them. The creeks get some small white waters when it's been wet also. I believe you may be able to find something out near Forsyth and I'm pretty sure there are springs in Eureka springs.

Hopefully someone will have a better answer.

They have some really nice waterfalls in Dogwood Canyon. They have walking trails and you can also rent bikes to ride on the trails.

But isn't Dogwood Canyon in Big Cedar? Can you go to BC and use the marina, golf course, walking trails, etc. and not be a guest of the lodge? I don't know. I am just asking. Fly.

I'm pretty sure you can partake of Dogwood Canyon and not be a guest.

They advertise it for the trail rides, etc., for anyone who is the area. So I don't think you have to be a guest. If you did, they'd be hurting themselves big time cause not that many of us can afford to stay there any length of time. If you go out to their site, I think you get more information.

2 different places. This is the best map I could find on short notice.

http://www.big-cedar.com/visit/mapbranson.cfm

Notice Big Cedar off of hwy 86 on bottom right. 86 continues across Table Rock. On lower left side you see where 86 picks up again on the map. You'd have to continue a few miles down the road to get to Dogwood canyon. On he plus side you could hit Persimmon Hill Berry Farm while you were in the area and grab some cobbler or a Thunder Muffin.

You can use the golf course that is a few miles from Big Cedar and you can rent horses at big cedar if you are not a registered guest.

You can not use the marina nor rent boats there if you are not a
registered guest.

You may want to look into the trout fishing at Dogwood Canyon.
