Rock Bridge Memorial State Park, Columbia

4.8
Rock Bridge Memorial State Park is a geological preserve and public recreation area encompassing 2,273 acres (920 ha), five miles (8.0 km) south of Columbia in Boone County, Missouri. The state park is noted for its excellent examples of karst landforms including the rock bridge, sinkholes, and an underground stream at the cave known as Devil's Icebox. The rock bridge was created by the collapse of a section of a cave which resulted in a small arch of rock being left to form a natural bridge over the creek.

  • Amazing place. The trails have wood paths with stairs making it accessible most people can make it to the Devil's Ice Box. Slippery when wet but very cool experience moving through the base of both cave options off of the trial system. Hopefully, you can catch a Caterpillar or a number of bats flying around.
  • If you love the great outdoors then this park is for you. The showcases of it are the Rock Bridge, a natural rock bridge formed by an ancient stream, and the Devil's Ice Box, a cave entrance. The trails to both are boardwalks so there is no getting your shoes muddy. If you are wanting exercise, this is the place to go as there are plenty of steps to cimb. It is a great place for an afternoon outing. Be ready to be without cell service though!
