Just minutes from Columbia, Rock Bridge Memorial State Park gives visitors the chance to scramble, hike and bicycle through a scenic environment – and lets them peek into Missouri’s underworld. The park contains some of the most popular hiking trails in the state and also offers solitude while hiking in the Gans Creek Wild Area. Visitors can also see a large cave system with its rock bridge, sinkholes, a spring and underground stream at the Devil's Icebox. You can explore Connor's Cave in the light of the opening for a taste of the underground world.

Decided to take family for a walk to Devil's Icebox while they were visiting in August for the eclipse. The walk can be steep at times, but very rewarding at the end. The kids loved the cave and the adults loved the cool-down.

Short (30 minutes) vigorous (steps, steps, steps) any kind of shoe (wood boardwalk) 1/2 mile trail that let's you see both Devil's icebox and Rock Bridge. Worth the stop if you are close and need to stretch your legs. Good place to walk the dog....More

Living not far from the park maybe I'm biased but there's really a little something for everyone here. There are tons of trails and of course the highlight is the mostly boardwalk trail to Devil's Icebox. Very popular and a must-see for nature lovers or...More

There are campgrounds in the Columbia area but none in the immediate vicinity of RBSP.
