Located 5.3 miles west of Route 65 on Branson's strip (Route 76), this 1,534-acre area invites visitors to take a walk on one of several trails that cross this mostly forested site and enjoy the natural beauty that has drawn visitors to this area for generations. A 0.4-mile trail leads from the main parking lot (south end of area) to a 40-foot viewing tower. A longer trail, the Henning Homesteaders' Trail, begins at the north parking lot (accessible from Route 248) and takes visitors past the remains of several homestead sites. Trails also run through glades, bottomland forest and other natural features. Trails are open to foot traffic only. Bicycles, horses and all types of motorized vehicles are not permitted. Camping and hunting are not permitted. Fishing is permitted at Roark Creek on the area's north end, but due to the stream's intermittent flow, angling opportunities are minimal.
