PhotoSeriesWaterfalls-19.jpg

Early Spring in the Ozarks is the best time of year to visit our area’s spectacular waterfalls.  The water will be flowing as we first stop at Glory Hole.  This amazing waterfall Glory Hole Falls is one of the most unique waterfalls in the Ozarks. The waterfall is formed by a stream that flows through the ceiling of an overhang cave. 

We will then head to High Bank Twin Falls.  This tranquil falls is a set of two (hence its name) that plunge side by side. This is a very short and easy hike to reach, but the falls are located in a secluded grotto that makes visitors feel completely alone in the deep wilderness.  

Relax as we head back home after seeing some of the most beautiful sites the Ozarks has to offer.
