Hike to the top of a large dolomite glade, and to views of the Lake of the Ozarks.

Located in Lake of the Ozarks State Park, the Rocky Top Trail (yellow blazes) starts out with a climb to the top of a large glade. After passing through woods and a ravine, you will reach dolomite cliffs that offer views of the lake below. This trail does include stream crossings.

At the half mile point, you will reach an intersection where you can choose whether or not to add on another 1.5 miles to your hike. A trail map is available here.

Reviews

It is not a very long hike but if you combine it with a few of the other hikes in the state park it is worth the trip. There are a bunch of other things to do at the lake so if you are down for the week, or weekend I would recomend stopping by this trail.

It's a decent hike, there are chances to do some solo climbing and maybe a little bouldering if you keep you eyes open! Adds a little fun to the trail
