We were in Kansas City for a business conference and stopped in Columbia on our way back to Michigan. I had read the reviews and we found the northern entrance and parking. We didn't realize how far north and the terrain. We were trying to read the map on my phone. We didn't have a printed map. I didn't think to print one, as the ones in Michigan you can get one at the entrance of the parks, even if they aren't manned. So, definitely print a map ahead of time. The address listed is an office, which was closed when we got there on Sunday.
We did enjoy the walk, although you are primarily looking down to the uneven ground and tree roots. We finally found the southern parking lot (these are my names for them, not official park names) and how close to the rock bridge and devil's ice box it is. So, not sure on the address but when you get to the address listed here on S Highway 163 keep going south til you get to the next parking lot. It's way closer.
It was so worth the hike when we got there. I really loved the rock bridge and devil's ice box. You could really feel a temperature difference as we walked down to the bottom. I would also advice bringing a real flashlight and not the one on your cellphone. Bring your camera, a flashlight, hiking foot gear and enjoy the scenery.
