Overview

This is a moderate loop trail to White Rock Mountain in White Rock Mountain Recreation Area.

This trail goes by Pilot Knob and White Rock Mountain Campground.

Getting Started

White Rock Mountain Loop is a 1.9 mile loop trail around the summit of White Rock Mountain Recreation area, and is best known for it's highly scenic views. Parking for a small day use fee is right at the trailhead, with additional parking throughout the park.

There are several stone shelters along this scenic trail, one being the Sunset Shelter. This point on the trail offers one of the best views in the Ozarks to watch the sun go down.

The dirt trail is well trodden and very easy to follow. You can expect rocky areas, and occasional steps or tree roots to climb at various stages along the way. The trail often edges close to the edges of the bluff line. This is also a dog friendly hike (on leash)

Taking Children

The bluffs and overlooks are significant, so while this trail would be suitable for all ages, be mindful of small children at all times.

    The road to White Rock Mountain is harder to do than the hike itself! We did a sunset trip today on the back of about 10 hiking miles in the area
