It's definitely a beautiful hike. Some notes I would like to put out....1. No signal at all so make sure you stay on the trail and don't get lost 2. If you are doing it in September, wear a hat because the spiderwebs are EVERYWHERE #raidersofthelostark 3. There is a dry river bed that has the potential to flood after crazy weather so plan accordingly 4. Wear bug spray, there are allot of horse flies when you sweat. Other than that... great views and pretty trail

Hiked this on the Sunday of Labor Day weekend. Several cars at trailhead and saw others on trail. Lots of drunk, rowdy people at the cave spring so we didn't stay long there. Saw one copperhead sunning itself on the trial, but uneventful otherwise. Not very scenic, but a decent workout as we kept the pace a little under 20" miles and we finished a little under two hours. Almost entirely wooded/shaded. Gravely terrain made me glad I wore my Keen boots.

This trail was one of my favorites in MO! The cave was wonderful and trail was clean and picked up. Such a variety of nature if you do the entire loop! Moderate describes the difficulty perfect.

Pretty cool hike. Watch out for the Stinging Nettle once you get down close to the river.

Completed this hike today. The cave is awesome. Would be a great place to hike in and camp down by the cave.

Great hike and layout. The switchbacks are perfect making an easy hike with good elevation change. True Ozarks trail.

The trail is very well laid out. The descent to the cave on the river and back out is very easy because of the switchbacks. Take the time and do the loop,not just out and back. You will be rewarded with a pleasant walk. I discovered the biggest redbud tree I ever saw. It had to be 5' accross.

My friends and I visited this spring over the weekend and it was incredible! You can feel the chill in the air emanating from the water. I highly recommend this spot if you're also floating down the river because both can be done easily in one day. Enjoy!

Round Spring State Park Campground has full amenities expected at a state park. Fee camping from tent to RV. The location itself has a cave and large spring as special features. The park is a great staging area while you canoe and hike the area.
