Hike the Lake Trail, Lake of the Ozarks SP

Rate this Adventure 1.5 miles  - Loop Trail

Added by Payton Bartlett

This short hike in Lake of the Ozarks State Park gets you right up next to the lake.

Starting next to the Outpost Cabins in Lake of the Ozarks State Park, this is an easy 1.5 mile hike that is very scenic. The trail will lead you right up next to the lake. The lake is in view for most of the hike. Be sure to wear hiking boots because the trail is rough and it would be very easy to roll an ankle. I would recommend sitting down for about fifteen minutes to listen to nature and to see the wildlife.
