Greer Springs trail is a 1.8 mile trail that takes you through old growth forest to the pristeen setting of Greer Springs, the second largest spring in the state of Missouri. The daily flow is 220 million gallons.
The hike is nice and easy. It is well worth it when you get to the end. The cave is simply amazing and this area has many spots to sit and read a book at the end of the trail (if you don't mind rocks as chairs).
Location hard to find from North. Well maintained even had 4-5 groups working on trail the day we hiked, All courteous. Nice view worth the hike.

Beautiful scenery at the springs!
Good place to stretch your legs only two mile in and out
I loved it
Anyone visiting the Eleven Point area should consider setting aside an hour or so to make the moderate hike down to Greer Spring. Even in the dead of winter, Greer is one of the most beautiful places in all of the Ozarks. The spring pumps up over 200 million gallons of water per day, making it the second largest in the Ozarks.
beautiful. Trailhead has lots of trees across trail from ice storm but 1\4 mile in trail is clear and well marked. Winter walk has nice views of holler. Highly recommend this 1 hour walk.
Beautiful and well-built trail!
Loved the place. Beautiful area and much to explore.

Very nice trail. Water is beautiful with lots of pretty rock formations. There is a cave at the mouth of the spring.
Nice, easy trail.
Great easy hike. Beautiful scenery.
A beautiful hike with interesting rock formations. It's really easy going down but may be difficult for some going back up. It can be a little steep, but there are strategically placed benches along the way. Worth seeing.
absolutely stunning and an easy must see!
One of my favorite places in Missouri, Greer Springs, is an awesome place to go hiking and swimming for the weekend. Plus, there is the 11 point river campground just down the street where you can camp. Camping at Greer is not allowed and same goes for floating. But overall, is a great getaway for the weekend.
The Greer Spring trail is an great, well maintained trail. It switchbacks down the hill to the spring in a near perfect way. Very easy to hike, just a little steep at the end to earn it a moderate rating. A beautiful scenic area the whole way. We saw a wide range of native flowers in full bloom as well as dogwoods in full bloom. Couldn't of caught it at a better time.
