Hike Hidden Springs Trail

2.5 miles  - Loop Trail

Added by Payton Bartlett

Hidden Springs Trail is a great trail located in Lake of the Ozarks State Park. 

This two and a half mile trail shares a trail head with White Oak Trail. It also intersects with the Trail of Four Winds but is clearly marked. Hidden Springs Trail takes you along parts of a bluff and offers some amazing views of the lake during the right time of the year. Wildlife is very abundant on this trail as well. Be sure to wear hiking boots because parts of the trail can get a little rough.

Great Hike In Lake Area

I went on this trail last weekend and it was a very enjoyable hike! The post suggests to go during the spring or summer, but I went in the middle of January and the lake view I had was amazing. There was a clearing in the trees that had the perfect place to set up hammocks with a phenomenal lake view. If you went during the spring or summer, you probably would not have gotten the same view due to the leaves on the trees. The trail is easy to find and well marked throughout the hike. We packed a lunch, brought some music, our hammocks, and just chilled out on the trail for 45 mins enjoying the view and the warm winter day. Great hike for beginners living in the lake area!
