About this Event


Nothing screams summer more than a swim session in an off the beaten path Shut-In! We will explore the breathtaking Ozark Trail through the Klepzig Mill to Rocky Falls section. This is a 6 mile hike with 459' elevation gain. The hike will begin at Klepzig Mill, a historic mill located in the beautiful Rocky Creek shut-ins. We will then continue through Buzzard Mountain shut-ins before ending at Rocky Falls, which is one of the most remarkable cascades in Missouri. You will not be disappointed by its beauty! Throughout the hike, we will take several breaks to immerse ourselves in the stunning Ozark's waterfalls, old historic buildings, watering holes, and dynamic terrain. Make sure to bring your bathing suits as we will be jumping into the numerous shut-ins located along this hike. On the drive back, we will stop at Piney River Brewing Company for some great locally made beer.
