Attraction details
Owner description: 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.
Useful Information: Bathroom facilities

The Rock Bridge is pretty and the hiking trail looked good for a state park, but we couldn't spend the time to hike. The area was peaceful. If I am in the area again I would hike there, but I would not travel across state to do so.

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.

You can walk around caves and explore all kinds of outdoor fun. The area is just beautiful and lush. Many things to see and do outside.

Rock Bridge Memorial State Park is a nice park to visit. It has easily accessible areas and is family AND pet friendly. There are nice picnic areas and numerous trails. It has the Devil's Icebox Cave that you can walk to- unfortunately, tours inside Devil's Icebox are currently suspended due to a bat fungus but it's still very cool to take the board walk to the mouth of the cave.

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!
