Branson has so many things to experience in the city, but nothing can beat the natural beauty of Missouri. One of the most beautiful and varied local spots is only a 15-minute drive from downtown Branson. The Ruth and Paul Henning Conservation Area is a 1,534-acre park filled to the brim with plants and wildlife to observe. A visit is a fantastic way to relax and get some fresh air while visiting Branson!
The area hosts numerous hills covered by oak and hickory. There are several different hiking trails to choose from that run through natural features such as the bottomland forest, various glades, and so much more. For a bird’s eye view of the conservation area, wander the trail from the main parking lot to the 40-foot tall observation tower. Make sure to take time to appreciate Branson’s diverse bird population, as well as the other wildlife who make the park their home. You’re sure to find a bit of peace and relaxation, even in the middle of a busy trip.
The area is open from 4:00 AM-10:00 PM every day of the week. For additional information, including a map of the area and brochure, check out their website here.
