nice trail, well maintained did it in November no one but us.The springs at the end were worth the trip, make sure you go down and to your left at the waters edge to see the main outlet of the water, just be careful on the rocks.

This is definitely a must see! This hike is super easy and straightforward. The beautiful blue waters of this spring are worth the walk. I took my 2 year old son with no problem! I actually hiked this one twice in one weekend so I could take my husband to see it.

We absolutely loved this trail and the beauty that awaited us at the end was spectacular! We've had a lot of rain in the Ozarks lately and the rushing waters were majestic!

One of my favorite spots to hike. The water is crystal clear and feels amazing after a hot summer day.

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).

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.

Very nice trail. Water is beautiful with lots of pretty rock formations. There is a cave at the mouth of the spring.
