One of the most photographed mills in the Ozarks.
Caught it one time with a thick fog over the spring.
Very cool place !!!
Beautiful, easy walk around Alley Spring and mill. Stop in and tour the mill while you're there!
Beautiful! And the Jacks Fork River was sooo nice for my 2 year old to wade and swim in!
Beautiful place to see. Has a 1.5 mile hike with a overlook. The mill and old schoolhouse are open at diffent times of the year.
Hesitate to write another review, but just visited again taking some family to this site. Alley Springs is a picturesque historic site. It is worth a trip there just to see it. But, once their you will have a hard time choosing what to do in the area. Choices seem unliimited.
The historic mill is nestled along Spring creek and is a beautiful sitting which the trail loops through. Also their is another short trail that give you a great overlook to the Mill. For fee camping is less than mile away and Jack's Fork river is great for floating.
