Overview

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.

Devil's Ice Box is a huge cave, but not a "show cave,"but there is much more to the park. Many nice trails, and beautiful wood walks over the cave. Nice place to picnic on a hot day. Timbered and open.

Home of the Devil's Ice Box, Rock Bridge is a fun park to visit. The cave is really neat! I always take Columbia visitors to Rock Bridge. It is my favorite park in the area.
