Amazing Big Spring

I simply cannot believe it took me 47 years to make it to Big Spring in the Ozark National Scenic Riverways! 

Now that I have finally seen it, I can see why it is such a “big” deal. 

Located within the Ozark Plateau, Big Spring is approximately 4 miles from Van Buren down Hwy 103. There is a paved parking area by the spring and the trail to it is level and smooth, making it wheelchair accessible.

It sure was pumping out a lot of water due to recent rains when I visited. This made the experience all the more impressive. 

I am willing to bet that on the day I arrived it was the biggest spring in America! On any given day, depending on local rainfall, America’s largest spring can be found right here in Missouri.
