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.

A great place to spend time outdoors. Beautiful forests and so much fun wading in the creek and exploring the caves. Great family fun.

This is a lovely park. We got to go down into Devil's Icebox, where the temperature dropped at least 20 degrees - perfect on a scorching day. Our son loved playing in the creek and chasing minnows.

We go here for multiple reasons. Morel mushroom hunting, hiking, and just for fun. The devil's icebox is always a nice and cool place to hang out when it is hot out.

Great place for an outside break, just 3 miles south of Columbia. The Devil's Icebox trail -- much of which is along a boardwalk -- is a pretty easy hike, with a little stair climbing if you want to go to the bottom of the...More

This a great place to take a date, go with the fam, or hang out with a friend. I highly recommend checking out the rock bridge as well as following the deck path to Devil's Icebox. Be sure to take a flashlight as well.

Rock Bridge Park is a nice place to go for a walk in the woods. You can choose a trail through the woods, but I prefer to stay on the wooden walkway. There are lots of stairs, scenic overlooks, and no spider webs or poison...More

This is the only natural area in the immediate vicinity of Columbia. It's well maintained and has trails, including a boardwalk path leading alongside a creekand through a rock bridge, also to Devil's Icebox, an entrance to a cave system.

After traveling the US, Rock Bridge is still one of my favorite places for single track biking. Technical without being impossible. Rocky at times, smooth and fast in others. No wonder its the home for the Show Me State Games.

Awesome park, plenty of trails that lead into one another. Can get muddy and hard to ride on a bike if it rained recently. I think its pretty money though.

I would say yes! Exploring the cave on our own was a fun and unique experience. All ages can enjoy this.

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