Cliffy Creek Bridge Trail MO

We just completed a 2.5 mile hike along Cliffy Creek,it is a very beautiful trail starting from the parking lot along the bluff crossing twice the creek loosing and gaining again 200 feet.

It is mostly in the shade and I would consider the level of difficulty to be moderate.

The Cliffy Creek Conservation area that includes also the Cliffy Creek Natural area are together 500 acres and one of the more dramatic features of Cliffy Creek Natural Area is a natural bridge with a span of about 40 feet that was created by a tributary of Cliffy Creek carving through Gasconaded dolomite.

Unfortunately at this time of the year the water was low but this allowed us to walk in the creek and wet our feet and even see some frogs that sounded like bulls….

Coming back to the C.G our hosts suggested to have dinner together ,so we shared what ever we had , it was a great evening and a great stay all together in this place.
