We will start our day by exploring Alum Cove. This area is most known for the incredible natural bridge that spans over 130’. This easy hike will allow us to see it from above and then climb down under the natural bridge where we will see small waterfalls coming down every side of the feature. This 1.5 mile hike is also filled with caves of all shapes and sizes. We will take our time to explore the entire area and dip into these caves to see what they have to offer! This easy hike literally has it all, the perfect summary of everything the Ozarks has to offer!
On our way back to Springfield we will visit Copper Run Distillery, the first legal distillery in the Ozarks Mountains since prohibition in 1933. The local distillery has a tasting room and a back patio to enjoy our drinks being surrounded by nature. After a tasting sit back with a drink in hand and talk about the mornings hike while listening to live music in the sunshine.
