Attraction details
Owner description: 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.
Useful Information: Bathroom facilities

There are a number of trails/hikes at Rock Bridge of various lengths. We took a short hike up to the mouth of Devil's Icebox cave (which is currently closed to protect the bats from White Nose Syndrome). The path is mostly boardwalk and stairs and the park was quite active for a Monday afternoon.

Situated just outside of Columbia it is a hidden treasure for this metro area.
