About this Event

Enjoy a very unique day out in water and land before the summer comes to an end!! We will start our day floating the Niangua River. This will be a 5 mile float that will lead us into Onyx Cave. In 1897, onyx was carved from inside it and used in the buildings of the 1904 St. Louis World Fair. After getting off the water, we will go on a simple 1.5 mile hike to see Ha Ha Tonka’s beautiful Blue Spring, where we will find a great place for lunch with a view. To finish off the day, we will head to Scoops, a quaint Ice Cream shop that serves Central Dairy Ice Cream! Get back home after a fun day in water and land!

*You will be able to choose between a tandem or a single kayak. The amount of tandem kayaks is limited.
