This loop trail offers an amazing amount of natural community diversity. Towering dolomite bluffs and steep rocky slopes that were the result of the erosive forces of the Grand Glaize River can be found along one section. You will see views of the lake as well as native columbines and ferns. Gentle slopes through native Ozark woodlands are characterized by the other half of this trail. Native white-tailed deer and fox squirrels are frequently seen. Access points can be found in the third and fourth areas of the campground. This trail also provides access to the campground amphitheater.

Overall it's an enjoyable trail. On the narrow side, along with plenty of rocks and uneven trail, it's not just a "casual walk". We took our 10 month old puppy (lab) for a hike through here and she loved it. Much of the trail runs parallel to the beautiful Lake of the Ozarks. There are some great views along the way, and plenty of nature. My AllTrails iPhone app said the elevation changes were around 700 feet. Not sure it's that much, but there are definitely some ups and downs through the trail. I enjoyed it and will be back for more!
