Taum Sauk Mountain - Missouri Highpoint Professional Review and Guide
"Highpoint rank by height: 41st. Just before you reach the high point, you'll notice a natural trail that splits off to your right from your concrete path. This trail is a 3 mile (4.6 km) loop that visits Mina Sauk Falls, the highest waterfall in Missouri. Part of this trail also coincides with a stretch of the Ozark Trail, offering extensive hiking opportunities in the area.
If you're not afraid of heights, take a short side-trip to climb the stairs up the Lookout Tower (see map). The view is excellent, and the experience may literally take your breath away! As you drive into Taum Sauk Mountain State Park, you may see an Adopt-A-Highway sign acknowledging the Highpointers Club , and its founder, Jack Longacre. Thanks, Jack! You've inspired a lot of people to continue this fun high point adventure."
