We will start our day at Ruth and Paul Henning Conservation Area, at the Homestead Trailhead. This is a 3.5 mile loop with 445 ft elevation change. This hike features a great forest scenery that will immerse you in the beautiful Ozarks.

After Exploring the Ozarks by day, we will head to Bull Shoals Lake for some stand-up paddle boarding by moonlight.  We will be led by instructors at 38 Paddle so this event is beginner friendly. If you have never experienced the lake at night, it is a must see.  The water is calm, the temperature is perfect, the sounds are all around you while you relax on your board under the moonlight filled sky. Head out on the water and come back to the pier for live music, snacks and other social activities.  After filling your soul and filling your stomach, put your head back as we drive back home with new friends and new memories.
