Today we will visit one of our favorite places in the Ozarks. We will start our day at 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! After the hike, we will head to Jasper, a quaint town, nested in the middle of the Ozarks, with cute vintage stores and a fun environment. We will enjoy some home made ice cream and baked goods at a local cafe at the square. Relax after this exciting day exploring in the Ozarks while we drive you home. Go into your week refreshed and relaxed!
