Rock Top 5K

The Course

As soon as runners enter the trailhead, they may say to themselves, this trail certainly lives up to its name. That rocky beginning leads to a beautiful large glade. After runners make their way back into the woods, they'll experience beautiful views of the lake as they make their way along this single track trail. This 5K course showcases Ozark topography well.​

Giving Back

Lake of the Ozarks Trail Series is committed to giving back to the outdoor community. Each year, we pick one organization that we believe will enhance our outdoor experience and donate a portion of our revenue to that cause.


Trail Run Project

Once the course is finalized, runners will be able to find it on the Trail Run Project. .
