COVID-19 Travel Information

"From Path to Path" – As we wander through life, our path changes beneath our feet. This First Day Hike will follow several paths, as we'll start out on Deer Hollow Trail near Fisher Cave, hike up to Bluff View Trail by the historic CCC dining lodge, head down to River Trail, and then go up through the campground. We'll explore woodlands, forest, river bottoms and bluffs. We may stop to visit an old, weathered past resident, one that has experienced many moments through time: a burr oak that lived to more than 300 years!

We'll meet at 11 a.m. in front of the visitor center to use the restrooms then drive to down to the Fisher Cave parking lot. Please wear sturdy hiking shoes. Bring snacks, water and binoculars for this moderately challenging three mile hike. All should take about 2.5 hours to complete. Please call the park office at 573-468-6072 if necessary due to bad weather affecting road conditions.
