Crane Lake is a clear, blue, 100-acre pool nestled in the rugged St. Francois Mountains. You can wander the lakeshore and admire the gorge below the dam on the 5-mile Crane Lake Trail. For more Ozark scenery, hike another 7 miles on the Marble Creek Section of the Ozark Trail, ending with a dip in the swimming hole at Marble Creek Campground.

Good hills and nice creek to get water. Only minus are the spots horses have made mud too think to walk through
