Still trying to perfect your beach body? Big Cedar has the perfect solution, hiking! As a wilderness resort, Big Cedar has many great scenic views and about 2.5 miles of trails that allow you to take advantage of the beauty. We also offer a one mile walking/jogging trail that starts at the fitness center.
While you are out on a hike, you can watch for the 150 species of birds that the Missouri Department of Conservation records as regular nesters in Missouri. From the Missouri state bird, the bluebird to the wild turkey, there are many stunning birds to spot. Hiking can also be a great way to relieve stress and simply relax as you take in all that nature has to offer. Big Cedar Lodge has beautiful waterfalls, several miles of frontage on Table Rock Lake, and we have planted over 1,000 flats of flowers this year for you to enjoy!
To beat the summer heat try taking a walk in the morning before breakfast or in the evening as you enjoy the sunset. Truman opens at 6:30 in the morning (for all you early risers) if you would care to stop on your walk for some coffee and a bite to eat.
