Thayer - Grand Gulf State Park


Some people call Grand Gulf State Park the “Little Grand Canyon.” Some just call it “breathtaking.” The park is one of the natural wonders of the Ozarks, presenting the most spectacular collapsed cave system in the Ozarks. The "Grand Gulf" stretches for more than a mile between 130 foot high walls. Visitors can view the gulf from trails on top or from the floor where they can walk under the natural bridge, which spans 250 feet with a 75-foot high opening. There is no official trail leading to the bottom, so visitors should use extreme caution when attempting to access the bottom. Interpretive trails detail the formation of the gulf.

Great walkways and even though it it was FREEZING temps the kids still enjoyed the walk. There was alot we didn't get ti see because if the weather so we will definitely be returning. Also it was very informative with signs all around. Most all the walkways that we wereon were paved.

It was amazing. Usually it is not full of water, but they had had floods.
