First Day Hike on Lakeshore Trail – Table Rock State Park

See Photo Location
Past Event

Join park staff for a guided hike on Lakeshore Trail to kick off the new year. True to its name, this trail runs along the shore of Table Rock Lake from State Park Marina to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Dewey Short Visitor Center adjacent to the dam. This is a 4.5-mile (2.25 one way) paved trail with minimal elevation change, so it is popular with visitors of all abilities. As it runs along the shoreline, it provides good views of the lake on the lower side and of 200-plus-year-old oaks on the upper side.

The hike will begin at the Lakeshore Trailhead at State Park Marina, located at 380 State Park Marina Road in Branson. Participants should bring water and wear warm clothes and good shoes for walking. Refreshments will be offered at the conclusion of the hike.

If you have questions about this event, you can call the park office at 417-334-4704. If the hike is canceled, a notice will be posted on the Park and Site Status Map.

This event is free and open to all ages, but registration is required. A signup link will be available here:
