Climb to the top of Taum Sauk Mountain State Park and be on top of Missouri – literally!  The park’s glades provide a beautiful, solitary experience for hikers.  There is a short, paved trail leading to Missouri’s highest point.  From there the Mina Sauk trail is a rugged 3-mile loop, taking you to the state’s tallest waterfall. 

From Shepherd Mountain Inn… 8 miles south on Hwy. 21, then take Hwy CC
