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.

This is my local park at only 15 minutes from my door. Excellent trails that are well marked and maintained. Excellent variety of trails for hikers of all exeprience levels. Fantastic examples of Missouri's karst topography abound and make for some interesting scenery. I've been hiking this park regularly for the past 2+ years and never get tired of it.

The 0.5 mile Devil's Icebox loop includes a hike under a rock bridge over partially submerged rocks in a wide stream bed AND a hike down stairs to a cave that can be explored. Lot's of fun and lots of stairs.

Our teenagers loved this place. There is lots of hiking on nice trails. The cave to explore was really cool. We used the flashlights on our phones to get all the way back into the cave. Never explored a cave on our own before so this was super fun.

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!
