The Point

A high bluff ridge stands like a peninsula where Hillers Creek winds around it far below. The Point is the end of that sandstone-capped ridge. From there a natural trail descends to the creek. Lichens, mosses, cream wild indigo, lowbush blueberry, and blackjack oak grow on top. Yellow lady slipper blooms on the slope. Native Americans used the area more than 1,000 years ago. You know you’re in the foothills of the Ozarks when you look out over hills and to the forest and creek below.
