Have you ever struggled to choose a hike or float trip on a summer day in the Ozarks!?  Well on this trip you get the best of both adventures in one day! We will start our day with a 2.5 mile hike in the stunning Bennett Springs State Park.  This gorgeous landscape is filled with unique rock formations and incredible views of the surrounding area. Enjoy the fresh air and sounds of nature as we spend the entire morning on the trail.

We will end the hike right at our put in to start our incredible afternoon on the river.  The Niangua winds in and out along our 4.5 mile float. The crystal clear cool water will be the perfect compliment to your morning hike as you sit back and relax watching the landscape from a different perspective than in the morning as you pass by.  Choose either a 2 man canoe, or solo kayak - whatever you prefer! Hang out with new friends as we drive back to Springfield and share stories of this combination of a lifetime adventure!
