The trail to the high point is well developed and unremarkable, but the Mina Sauk Falls loop was scenic and well worth the time to take.

If anyone "attempts" this and doesn't get to click the "Were you successful?" button it is a sad day for that person.

Great drive through the Ozarks to a relatively uneventful hike. We explored the Elephant Rocks State park not to far and had a lot more fun there. I'm guessing hiking down to the falls would make this a little more fun. Very pretty area. One of us did end up with a tick though....

Took a short detour en route to a business meeting. Beautiful drive up to the mountain, dogwoods blooming and only a couple cars in the parking lot. Got there too late in the day to take a trip to the falls. Should do that next time I am in the area. Was not prepared for it to be 92 degrees - YIKES!

Running late on a stressful, long drive meant arriving at Taum Sauk after dark. Creepy sounds as we hiked in to the highpoint.

State HP #33......and our first one at night! We finally made it there, after a long weekend of driving through MS, LA, AR, and MO. Relatively uneventful, except for the fact that we were upset that we missed the daylight. Oh well, it still counts. Besides, it wasn't much to look at anyways, compared to some of our prior missions.

Did this highpoint while doing a family vacation to St. Louis. The hike to Mina Sauk Falls was enjoyable and just the right length for smaller kids to do without having to carry them the whole way.

Could not have asked for better weather. A little cloudy which kept the temp below 75. I hiked to the waterfall as well. Hardly a soul on the roads to get here, but there were several folks hiking to the falls...in spite of that, I still had long sections of the trail in solitude. Worth hiking to the falls when they are running!

Date Climbed: Jun 28, 2012
A ridiculously hot day in Missouri - 110 degrees by the thermometer in the car... I decided to actually do some hiking at Taum Sauk. Made the walk to the summit (easy), took some obligatory pictures, and then decided to go find some other trails to hike.

Very rocky trails there. I took 3 bottles of water with me, and once the first one was done, I decided to turn back, wanting to make sure that I had reserves just in case. Hiked for about 2 hours there... very little water at the falls, as it was very dry and hot.

Kind of hurried. Plane landed in St. Louis and my Dad and I made a beeline for Taum Sauk. Nice little hike but we might have enjoyed it more if I'd given us more time. HP #29.

If only they were all so easy... just kidding of course, the challenges of the others make them so much fun. If you have a chance go check out Mina Sauk Falls. If you go in August expect it to be all dry. The rocks where by the typical falls site are stunning and afford a great view even when there's no water.

SHP #12

If you're above highpointing, then it's real simple: don't go, and your sense of superiority ought also to place you above trolling on SHP summit logs.

Hit this one up "on the way" back from a Radiohead show with my dad in St. Louis. I would've done the Mina Sauk trail, but for my 76-year-old father who doesn't get around as well as he once did and an additional 10 hours left to drive home.

Still, we both hit up the observation tower for the great views offered there.

Very nice day. I only saw one other person hiking in the area. The trail heads were easy to find and the trails were well marked.

Highpoint #6 - did this on new years day of 2011 after spending the night in Branson, MO. Accidentally went to the Resivoir...had to back track a little on the drive to get to the real high point. it was cold; barely above freezing.
