  • E Hwy is an awesome road as it threads along the river. It is one of the best motorcycle roads in Southeast Missouri. Absolutely beautiful.

    As an added note, it takes you right into Arcadia Valley.

  • Good info also. I have only been about halfway up the falls apparently. Time for a return trip. We were there just a few weeks ago.

  • been there done that, although mostly I have descended from the ranger road that runs level from north to south.

    The lowest point where the main waterfall cascades a few dozen feet from Rte E, is called the Shut-ins historically by the locals.

    After a hard rain it is am impressive sight to gaze at the cascade of water and hear the roar.

    I have ascended from the road, via a relatively easy ascent along the left (south) side.
