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.

This has been one of my favorite hikes in Missouri in quite some time! Rocky Falls is absolutely beautiful and the other two shut-ins are amazing as well! Klepzig Mill is unique and the fall leaves really set it off. I am happy I did this hike after we had rain this past week since I think it would have been very dry otherwise. I did have a hiccup that almost made me turn back at the point when it crosses the low water bridge and struggled to find the OT marker. I actually almost turned back, but discovered one sticker on the back of the highway marker and saw the trail just past it on the left with another OT marker on a tree. Other than that, the trail is marked well and not overgrown in any areas since it is part of the OT. Beautiful in fall!

I hiked from Rocky Fall to Klepzig and back. The directions were from Klepzig to Rocky. No where on the directions does it say to walk up the highway and around the curve then hit the logger road so I spent 25 min trying to find the OT marker around the low water bridge and then the remainder of the hour hiking through the woods and blackberry thorns trying to find the trail.
Need better directions.
