Overview

Just minutes from Columbia, Rock Bridge Memorial State Park gives visitors the chance to scramble, hike and bicycle through a scenic environment – and lets them peek into Missouri’s underworld. The park contains some of the most popular hiking trails in the state and also offers solitude while hiking in the Gans Creek Wild Area. Visitors can also see a large cave system with its rock bridge, sinkholes, a spring and underground stream at the Devil's Icebox. You can explore Connor's Cave in the light of the opening for a taste of the underground world.

What a great park! We spent several hours just wandering around, climbing all over and even took a free cave (mini) tour! The regular tours are postponed because the poor bats are sick, but the mini tour was worth it. The walkways were really cool...More

This little state park has a lot to offer. There’s a rock bridge and a cave to explore, many trails, and it’s a great place for a picnic. The river is pretty serene and a great place to go to get away from it all.

This is a great place to hike and see some incredible natural sites. The Rock Bridge and Devil's Icebox are great natural formations. The walkway is very nice and the other hiking/walking trails are also good. Nice place to take grandkids!

We’ve lived in this area for twenty years and have visited Rock Bridge Memorial State Park numerous times. Our entire family loves hiking the various trails. It’s a beautiful chance to enjoy nature just a few minutes south of Columbia.

A great place to hike with family or friends. We had young children and they lived exploring the cave entrance and the rock bridge. They loved walking in the stream under the bridge. A fun day of exploring.
