This is a GREAT rustic scenic view, though Mark Twain National Forest, located about an hour from Branson. Apparently, this was the first such trail in Missouri and only one of a 100 nationally. We had some time and wanted to take a scenic drive and came across this. We enjoyed it very much, it got a little long, but it was still very nice. the road is all rock, but well maintained. The picnic areas were rustic and only one out-house facility available. If you like nature and driving, this would be a good trip. The drive getting there was also very scenic. We seemed to have gone in the back way which was located out of Rueter Missiouri.
