The Ruth and Paul Henning Conservation Area

Just 15 miles from downtown Branson you will find the Ruth and Paul Henning Conversation Area. A 1,500-acre piece of land that is known for being a peaceful place to clear the mind and enjoy the nature around you.

There is a 5.7-mile Homestead Trail on the acreage that will take you through some of the most beautiful sites of Missouri. It's not an easy trail to walk though there are some hills and rocky terrain, but this trail will take your mind off what is going on in your life and all you have to do is concentrate on not falling.

Along the way you will find several different wildflowers and insects (yuck), but when in nature take it all in...right? There are waterfalls along the trail and just that place that you might need to recharge and relax (as much as you can on a 5.7 hiking trail).
