Big Spring Scenic Beauty

Big Spring in the Ozark National Scenic Riverways is an awesome sight and a geologic wonder. Underground passages carry water from as far as 45 miles away to emerge at the spring. The water carries a load of dissolved limestone equivalent to 70 tons a day! This dissolved rock gives the spring its color and is also carving out a huge conduit underground. Should the spring ever go dry, a huge cave will be the result.

Ozark National Scenic Riverways, located in Missouri, is the first national park area to protect a river system. The Current and Jacks Fork Rivers are two of the finest floating rivers visitors will find anywhere. Spring-fed, cold and clear they are a delight to canoe, swim, boat or fish. Besides these two famous rivers, the park is home to hundreds of freshwater springs, caves, trails and historic sites such as Alley Mill.
