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.

We enjoyed Rock bridge! The park rangers station was very helpful with giving us a map and information! It had rained a lot so didn't get to go walk in the cave but that would have been awesome!

The hiking around Devil's Icebox is beautiful, and well maintained. The other trails are varied in length and terrain, so you should be able to find hiking appropriate to any group.
