The Waterfall Trail is one of the newest trails recently developed within the city. The trail runs along an un-named tributary of Roark Creek and includes some beautiful rock formations, a waterfall and a dense tree canopy. The 2/3 mile long trail is an unpaved footpath, rugged in some locations and crosses a creek in two locations. Since the trail runs along a natural creek, it is subject to closure during and after heavy rainfall.
The trail is located about 300 feet north of the intersection of Roark Valley Road and Shepherd of the Hills Expressway. Limited parking is available near the trailhead.
Currently, the City of Branson has 16 parks serving residents and visitors. These parks offer a wide variety of opportunities from swimming to nature trails.
