Day Hiking

Cedar Bluff Trail begins near the pavilion in the picnic area at the Lane Spring Recreation Area (look for the sign). The trail is mostly wooded, and steep in some places. If you've never seen an Ozarks "glade", you'll enjoy visiting the rocky meadow at the top, surrounded by cedar trees for which the trail is named. At its highest point, the trail offers a view of Little Piney Creek. Cedar Bluff trail is a 1.5-mile loop which returns to the picnic area.
