Get away from the bustle of everyday life by seeing some of Missouris finest karst features such as the rock bridge or by exploring the forests, streams and restored grasslands of Rock Bridge Memorial State Park. While walking the half-mile Devils Icebox Boardwalk, visitors can view the rock bridge, have the opportunity to explore Connors Cave on their own, and see an underground stream, small spring and sinkhole. The 15 miles of trails that traverse the 2,273-acre park are always open to hikers and are conditionally open to bicyclists. Hikers and horseback riders can enjoy the serenity of the 750-acre Gans Creek Wild Area. Before riding, visitors should call the trail condition hotline. Groups can make arrangements to receive a rock bridge/Connors Cave tour or other interpretive programs. Devils Icebox Cave, with over seven miles of passages, can be explored on park-led wild cave tours by advanced registration only. The parks orienteering course will challenge adventurous visitors. Picnic sites, a reservable picnic shelter, and playground equipment make the park a great place for family gatherings. Primitive camping for non-profit youth organizations is available by making advanced reservations.

This was a great trail-- had to cross a creek- could be a little tough keeping your feet dry...

Yay for Park management! They replaced the faded trail markers with bright yellow ones and marked the trail more frequently. Being a novice I've been confused in the past. Trail does have a couple of creek crossings which are easy to navigate, especially in late summer through February. Inclines are moderate. Scenery more. Beautiful in spring and summer but rugged otherwise. I will return here more in the future as it is much more user friendly.

there is way to many people on this trail.. like on every trail in this state park. it wasnt to special. it is well maintained and marked tho.

no one there- and many spider webs to walk through

Very nice trail!!!

Really well maintained. Well marked. We hiked it in a little under 2 hours. Lots of great creek crossings. Can't wait to come back in the fall.

The trail is not very well-maintained. Pretty overgrown so wear pants. But it's a nice short loop. A little unclear where you cross the creek but we figured it out and had a nice outing.

Beautiful place and very lightly trafficked

Ok, very moderate effort required, a romp in the woods, needs better marking though, bridges across creek are highlights, does it really take that much to apply some decent trail badges? Picnic and staging area at trailhead are in excellent condition, clean and kept; why not pour about 2 hours' effort into letting hikers know where to go on this hike, since there are other trails in the complex?
