osatrikHands Across America  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 2, 1986

osatrik

This was the 8th state highpoint visited in 6 months by my daughter Vanessa and me at the beginning of our quest. We went here with our family on Hands Across America day, in which we participated near Ste. Genevieve, MO. I recently completed my 49 state high points, and resolve to forego spending three weeks Alaska in favor of going to the Himalayas.

OK, this sort of drives home how silly high pointing is. Granite and McKinley are one thing but Taum Sauk??? sorry dudes. You just drive up and stroll a short distance to a marker in the woods, can't even see anything, you can climb up on the rock there, like a couple feet higher, and be on the top of Missouri....sheesh!

Short hike to the MO highpoint in a pretty state park. We did the 3 mile loop hike to Mina Sauk Falls. Drove on to Piedmont and had breakfast at the Zephyr Cafe. State HP #36.

The off road drive during the last mile through the snow and ice was the hardest part of my AR-MS-LS High Point Trip. Wish I could have made a day of it but only had time to walk to the high point in the dark and move on.

This is one of the four highpoints I snagged on a road trip from Atlanta. A pleasant place, indeed!

Drove all the way from Kansas City to reach my 22nd high point. My wife and dog got their first. Nice area, but probably nicer when there are leaves on the trees.

My wife lived in St Louis at the time and she had never been to Missouri's highpoint and neither had I. Even though there isn't much to walking to the summit, it is a beautiful place and there is always excitement about reaching the high point of a state. We saw pileated woodpeckers while on the summit.

Brought the whole family to the top; quick, short walk on a sidewalk. Then hiked to Mina Sauk - nice hike, nice views, very enjoyable. We had a good view of "where the falls would be" if there was actually any water in them. HP#12

Hiked the HP and the falls loop trail. Nice to be out of the car. Last of 3 HP's of the trip. Headed from here to the Donut Drive-In in St. Louis. If you love donuts, you have to go there! Stop at Ted Drewe's Frozen Custard too--just down the street. You won't regret it! Good stuff!

Touched the nice stone highpoint marker, then ran/jogged the Mina Sauk Falls trail. I was kind of disappointed with the falls, I thought they would be bigger.

Driving from Tulsa, I arrived with just over an hour of daylight left. Clouds and rain obscured any view from the overlook. After a few minutes at the highpoint, I decided I could run to Mina Sauk Falls and back before dark. Wet, slick rocks slowed progress at some points, but the effort paid off as the falls were the best part of the trip. I had just enough time to climb the observation tower before dark, but the weather again obscured any view. #3

We braved 45-degree weather in a winter ascent. Because temps had been below freezing for several weeks, the trail to Mina Sauk Falls was a bit muddy as the ground thawed.

Paved path to the top. Took my 11-year old cousin and we both agreed the best was the Mina Sauk Trail accessible from this paved path--a beautiful gem of a hike for Missouri.

It was a cold and windy morning. I first visited the Lookout Tower. As I climbed the tower I noticed that the metal frame seemed to sway a little because of the wind and then I also found slush on the wet wooden steps (not a good combination, for a spiral staircase). No good views from the tower because of the dense morning fog.
I then trekked up to the State Highpoint for a photo-op. While returning to the car, I met a couple of highpointers from Rhode Island; they were shocked to see another person there so early. We exchanged information regarding our highpoint experiences. Very enjoyable.

We enjoyed the nice stroll in the woods and would have loved to spend more time exploring, but alas the rental car had to be turned in shortly.

#1 on my list. If you're traveling to check this one off of yours, add a little credibility to the trip and take the Mina Sauk Falls trail, it's well worth it!

Yes, my 16 year old daughter and 9 year old son did the 'mountain top' this day. But they also did the Taum Sauk Falls, a much stiffer test. There was water running.
