  • This was the best hike I have taken is this area, it had rain and the waterfall was spectacular. The rocks were very slick though, I fell in the water when trying to cross. Lol! I would definitely sug...  read more »
  • Beautiful hike with views, trees, some flowers...but I have to say the "falls" were more of a trickle right now....need a lot more rain if you want to see the falls. A moderate hike, not easy, not dif...  read more »
  • We did not hike to the waterfall because they said there needs to be a good recent rain for it to be flowing well. The look out was very pretty, you just drive up to it. There were also picnic table so we had our lunch there. The conservation department has a lookout tower you can go in. We didn't make it all the way up because the kids for scared so I have no idea if the view is good.
  • How often do you get to stand at the highest point anywhere? It may not be the tallest mountain in the world, in North America, or this country, but it is the tallest in the state and for that distinction, it is worth it especially if you have a desire to visit the highest point in each state! Camping is primitive only and hiking takes you to the Ozark Trail and to Johnson's shut-ins via backpacking trail! Definitely worth a stop!
  • Absolutely amazing park, seriously worth the journey. Hike the trails from the mountain to the waterfalls, stand on top of the highest point in Missouri, climb a tower and see for MILES!!! Also, the overlook is by far. my. favorite! Sooooo beautiful!
  • 8-8-16- Good loop hike. Falls werent running today, but plenty of bolete mushrooms. So much trash along the trail!
  • Highest point in Missouri and a very beautiful park for a variety of hiking levels. Easy to get to the high point, water fall have a greater degree of difficulty.
