More Than Just the Rivers.... Ozark National Scenic Riverways is the first national park area to protect a river system. The Current and Jacks Fork Rivers are two of the finest floating rivers you'll find anywhere. Spring-fed, cold and clear they are a delight to canoe, swim, boat or fish. Besides these two famous rivers, the park is home to hundreds of freshwater springs, caves, trails and historic sites such as Alley Mill.

The hike is nice but the mill and falls are where the beauty lays.

Well the water was up and slightly raining. Perfect time to visit the water was roaring.

Only floated this once.
During the week, late summer.
Almost alone, it was great.

One of the most photographed mills in the Ozarks.
Caught it one time with a thick fog over the spring.
Very cool place !!!

A lot of people float to here.

Love this River. Wintertime can be AWESOME !!!
But just sitting on any of these gravel bars is all I need.

Real unique area. Unworldly blue.

Great destination hike to hit if you're in the area. The fall colors and the blue water made it more than worth the short trek. I made the trip in the mid morning and the sun was behind the cliffs. I would imagine it's even more beautiful in the afternoon with the sun on the water.

Came here by accident because the GPS drop for Blue Springs actually routes you here. The camp sites looked decent but sadly the restrooms were already closed for the season. So if you are planning on primitive camping here to enjoy the fall colors and the river, keep in mind, you will be fending for yourself when it comes to the restroom. The Blue Hole is worth the hike up from here. There is open restrooms there, but I would advise using only if it's an emergency.

Beautiful, easy walk around Alley Spring and mill. Stop in and tour the mill while you're there!

This trail has a large assortment of different Missouri terrain all in one trail. The types of rocks at rocky falls and the mill are fascinating. It is a good shortish hike. I did it in July, at the peak of summer heat and it was nice. There are many places to stop by the river and take a break to cool off if needed.
