The trail takes visitors to the most impressive geological features in the park including the 63-foot high natural tunnel known as the Rock Bridge and the double sinkhole entrance to Devils Icebox and Connors Cave. Also of interest are a limestone glade, Connors Spring and a valley formed by the collapse of part of the Devils Icebox Cave system. Displays tell visitors more about the cave system and the areas history. The hike down the stairs to the double cave entrance is refreshingly cool in the summer months. Devils Icebox Cave, which is upstream (to the right) is closed to the public. Visitors are permitted to wade in the underground stream at the cave entrance and into the 150-foot long Connors Cave, which is downstream (to the left). Flashlights, helmets and good shoes are recommended. The trail shares a short section with Spring Brook Trail and links to Sinkhole Trail.
very easy and we'll maintained trail
Great hike for Missouri! The cave is fun to explore.
Nice area, Love hiking with a destination or some high point in the hike.
This is lot of fun! Bring good shoes (hiking style if you get off the boardwalk though. Only reason it's 4 stars is because they have a boardwalk that hasn't been fixed for 11 years? Lots of fun!
A classic for CoMO
Nice hike, not too difficult. Loved the cave and that it didn't have any rules. Most caves you can't even step foot into these days. We had fun exploring and climbing a little bit inside.
