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 walking area down to the cave is closed. It needs some serious maintenance. There are no employees working there or anything so it’s kinda creepy when you have your kids. I was disappointed

Visited RB State Park with my three kids, ages 10, 8, and 3. They had a great time walking the trails and boardwalks around the rock bridge, splashing in the creek, and exploring in the caves. This is a very good way to get kids out of the house and away from devices for a couple of hours. Bring water shoes!

What a great park! We spent several hours just wandering around, climbing all over and even took a free cave (mini) tour!
The regular tours are postponed because the poor bats are sick, but the mini tour was worth it. The walkways were really cool and literally went all over.
There were lots of families with small kids having a good time, so it's definitely family friendly.
We could have walked for way longer, but decided against it only because it was close to lunch time.
I'd love to come back and go on a longer hike in the future!

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.
