  • Elephant Rocks - One of the most curious geological formations in Missouri is found at Elephant Rocks State Park. Giant boulders of 1.5 billion-year-old granite stand end-to-end like a train of circus elephants. Many of the elephant rocks lie within the seven-acre Elephant Rocks Natural Area. This natural area is recognized for its outstanding geological value.      
  • Hughes Mountain - Hughes Mountain rises 380 feet above the floodplain of the nearby Big River and is comprised of Rhyolite, a type of igneous rock. See ancient volcanic rocks with unusual hexagonal structures and enjoy the view of the Ozark landscape from atop the ancient mountain.
