Blue Spring – Missouri


We took a mini vacation to the Ozark Scenic National Riverways area in Missouri and saw so many beautiful places! As we drove southwest on Highway 106, our first stop was Blue Spring on the Current River. A 3 mile unpaved road leads to the the trailhead parking lot. From here, a half mile trail gives you access to Blue Spring. This area is spectacular! The spring branch flows peacefully to the Current River and the water is so clear.

At 310 feet deep, this spring is Missouri’s deepest spring and most blue. The blue color comes from minerals that have dissolved underground. Did you know that the Statue of Liberty could be submerged in the spring and there would be 5 feet of water between her torch and the top of the spring?!

A short trail leads to the top of the bluff where you can overlook the spring from above.
