Hiking, Biking & Paddling
Stretch your legs with a long walk at water's edge or in the woods near Table Rock Lake. Miles and miles of walking and hiking trails are located within easy reach of the lake. Some trails are surfaced for easy access for walkers, disabled visitors, and bicycle riders. Others are more rugged for hikers, mountain bike riders or even horseback riders.
Ranging in length from about one-third mile to several miles, the walking trails are a great way to see hardwood forests, cedar glades, native grasses, creeks, "bald-knobs" and all the flora and fauna that inhabit them in the Ozarks. Trails are open at all times of year. A trail head visitor center in Reeds Spring welcomes walkers to two walking trails in place on existing roadways. The Reeds Spring trail system is eventually expected to connect to the Branson trail system.
Eight miles of trails are planned for Indian Point in a trail system that will connect to Compton Ridge, Roark Valley and the Highroad Valley. Many additional miles of walking and biking paths are planned for development in Stone and Taney counties in the next few years. A group of volunteers makes up the Ozark Mountain Nature Trails Association, which plans to help develop more than 150 miles of trails in the area near Table Rock Lake
