Get ready for an incredible day of hiking on breathtaking trails surrounded by gorgeous waterfalls. The first waterfall that we will visit is Tea Kettle Falls. Its a beautiful, off-the beaten path 46 ft waterfall. The 2.4 mile trail is surrounded by beautiful vegetation and we will be crossing the creek multiple times - get ready to get your feet wet! After, we will visit the teal colored King's River Falls. The trail is easy, with low elevation change and the pool below the falls makes a great swimming hole. Weather permitting, jump on in for a nice refresher before heading back on the trail! We will then head back to Springfield after a refreshing day exploring the Ozarks.
