Bouldering at Elephant Rock State Park
Missouri › Elephant Rock State Park
Added by Alaina Donovan
Massive billion year old rock formations shaped like elephants! A haven for geology buffs and boulderers alike.
The area is preserved for these amazing geological wonders. Huge boulders that stand end-to-end like a train of circus elephants fill the park. You can hike through the area and even boulder on top of the rocks. Short trails are found between and around the 'elephants!'

Hike the Spring Trail
Missouri / Spring Trail
This hike starts out on a half mile of paved trail. From here you will climb a ton of steps to the top, which when the leaves are off the tress can offer a pretty good view.
Backpack the Woodland Trail
Missouri / Woodland Trail
Starting at 850 feet of elevation, this 3.25 mile loop is a great beginner backpacking trip. The trail is fairly rough so a sturdy pair of hiking boots is a must.
