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.

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.

Such a nice park for a short hike in a natural setting. Took my dog for a quick walk, it’s beautiful here. Even with other visitors in the park, you have your space. Natural rock formations and native Missouri plants. If you have 2 hours...More

Stopped here while traveling to stretch our legs and get some fresh air. Nicely kept "trails" (wooden walkway with lots of stairs), family/pet friendly. We spent about an hour - took the Rock Bridge trail to Connor's Cave. Glad we stopped!

Aside from the pinnacles, this is probably where everyone else goes to experience the outdoors in Columbia. The cave is cool but aside from that, it’s just a trail in the woods

Worth the trip to see this. Be sure to take your head lamp and waterproof shoes and explore the underground cave.

Decided to take family for a walk to Devil's Icebox while they were visiting in August for the eclipse. The walk can be steep at times, but very rewarding at the end. The kids loved the cave and the adults loved the cool-down.
