Our afternoon will start with an incredible hike through Judea Mountain to reach the breathtaking view of Big Creek Valley from Sam's Throne. This is a relatively easy hike that starts through a saddle ridge and on over to the base of Sam's Throne, where its grandiosity can be admired from down below. We will climb around 330' over a 1.25 mile trail to arrive to Sam's Throne, right before sunset to admire the beautiful vistas.We will end our hike as the sun is setting, viewing the amazing fall colors of an Ozarks sunset. We will stop at one of the natural caves along the trail for dinner and s’mores over an open campfire!
S’mores and non-alcoholic drinks will be provided, but everyone is welcome to bring their own beer or drinks of choice! A perfect ending to an amazing day outside, enjoying good food and drinks with new friends and new stories.
