  • We hiked much of the Ozark Trail between Johnson's Shut-Ins and Taum Sauk Mountain. It was beautiful and very rugged. I loved the terrain of the land. There were many gorgeous scenes to see along the ...  more »
  • Great place to hike with the family. Took my two boys age 8 and 5. They loved it and loved the waterfall where we ate our lunch. Beautiful place!  more »
  • Fall is our favorite time to hike the trail back to Mina Sauk Falls. Keep in mind the trail is pretty rugged (lots of rocks and uneven in most spots). I would definitely recommend hiking sticks. The t...  more »
  • The highest point was kinda a let down just a plaque in the ground. Boo. And the tree to the falls is a tough one and without alot of rainfall it's not flowing strong. Thinking tho if there had been alot of rain the trek could have been slippery and dangerous to us mild hikers. The falls was still beautiful in its low state though. Still a beautiful view.
  • Great hike, scenic views. Home to the highest point in Missouri, although that's not saying much. Mina Sauk Falls is where it's at. Trail can be pretty rocky and rugged. Hiking boots and decent knees highly recommended.
  • 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.
  • 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!
  • 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!
