Hike and fish hatchery Tour

Today's adventure is the perfect day exploring the Ozarks. We will start our journey at Roaring River Park, located in a narrow valley surrounded by a gorgeous rugged landscape. The drive to the trailhead alone is a site to see in this beautiful State Park. We will hike around 2 miles with an elevation change of 300 ft. We will hike through dense woodlands, open dolomite glades, springs and streams.

After the hike we will explore the famous spring-fed cave that is the highlight of this State Park.  The spring comes out of the cave right into a fish hatchery that is an amazing site to see. Relax as we walk back into the cave and feel the cool air rushing out, while viewing the amazing gathering of trout in this area. On our drive back out, do not forget to look out the windows at the collection of natural waterfalls in the streams and see the gathering of fly fishermen at every corner.

Cave Tour and Ice Cream

Today we will head to one of the most amazing caverns in the area to explore some breathtaking rock formations. Mystic Cavern was originally called Mansion Cave because of the large calcite formations that fill the incredible underground chamber. One of the most spectacular calcite formations is the “Pipe Organ”. It stands 30 feet tall and 12 feet thick. You will enjoy hearing about this amazing cavern on your tour as your guide reveals the surprising history of the past one hundred years! 

After the tour we will head to the quaint town of Jasper, AR to the famous Blue Mountain Cafe. Their hand dipped ice cream will be the perfect way to cool off in the heat of the summer. We will take our time to see the main square of this amazing town surrounded by the Ozark mountains before we head back to Branson!
