Rozarks Nature Trails

The Rozarks Trails are a system of hiking and biking trails with a length of 4.5 miles in the woods of Rosedale. With trailheads at Mt. Marty Park, Fisher Park, and Minnie St. (near Seminary St.), this trail was built by hundreds of volunteers and is currently maintained by RDA.

Some parts of the trails have a steep grade, so wear good walking shoes before you head out on the trails!
