Highlights of the trail are the Dewey Bald, Boulder Bald, a portion of the "trail that is nobody knows how old," Sammy Lane's Lookout, The Signal Tree, and Little Pete's Cave.

  • Great place for some hiking. There are some longer trails with high elevation changes if you are looking for a more strenuous hike. They also have a nice 0.5 mile, paved trail for those looking for less. The tower on that easier trail sports a great view. There are restrooms there, but bring water!!

  • Great if you love nature hikes but you have to pack out what you pack in. No trash cans. One outhouse building at the trailhead. The dogs enjoyed the visit.

  • It has a beautiful view of the Branson area. It actually overlooks the entertainment city and can give one the sense of wonder about all the dreams people have about making it in the county music industry. The greatest view one can have is early in the morning with the fog laying in the valleys below. As you stand there and watch the fog begin to burn off the town below comes to life. The site was named for Ruth and Paul Henning who took a part of the Ozarks to Hollywood.

  • Several trails to hike. Would have been nicer if the streams would have been running, but there hasn't been enough rain lately.

  • Only thing that would make this place better is a trash can and actually have toilet paper in the pit toilet houses. The trails and very well marked and clean. Beautiful!!!
