  • There are 2 different trails. One is a nice stroll through the woods the other takes you down alot of steps to the spring. We went off the path too so we could see the natural bridge from the bottom. ...  more »

  • I visited Grand Gulf State Park in January, 2017. It was worth the trip to say I had been there and seen the view, but I'm not sure I would want to go back. I love hiking, and the trails didn't really offer the incredible views that I've seen in other areas of Western Missouri and Arkansas. There are trails leading down into the Gulf, as well as areas directly off the parking lot for viewing purposes. You do not have to walk the trails to see the gulf.
  • This is an amazing park! I absolutely love it been here twice and will try to come back soon!
  • Beautiful place to visit and Tour. Warning do not leave any valuable items in your vehicle. I stopped in with my nephew's on March 18th a lady approached me and asked if I seen a gray car . MY reply was did they back into ya . It was worse they broken the passenger side window and stolen her purse that she felt was safe hiding under her coat. Less than 30 min visit she was there and had that happened. It's a easy target because once your off on the trails there's no one up at the parking area watching the vehicle, unless someone stays behind. She has a SUV so trunk was no option for her purse. Pack lightly on valuables take a funny pack etc for credit cards id keep the rest at home motel room ECT. Never keep your social or birth certificate of yourself or children in the purse as well like this lady had done better off in a hidden spot at home. Other than the heed of warning the place is still of seeing.
  • They views were beautiful. I walked the 119 steps down the mountain just to see the small waterfall. Amazing, so worth every step. If you get the chance go.
  • Off the beaten path but worth the drive beautiful scenery.
