This area affords a glimpse of one of the jewels of the Ozarks, the Meramec River. Most of the area is home to lush forestland. Sheer cliffs along the Meramec River form the western border of the area, giving a scenic view of the river valley and surrounding hills. The wheelchair-accessible Woodland Trail offers hikers of all abilities glimpses of the river as well. Other trails provide hiking, horseback and bicycle riding. The area contains six caves, a great blue heron rookery and abundant wildlife. A number of streams and a spring are found on the site. Don’t forget to pack your fishing gear for a chance at hooking bass, catfish and sunfish. To reach the area, take I-44 to Route 185 near Sullivan. Exit south, go five miles and look for the cantilever sign.
