If you aren't used to stairs or hiking, it's not for you. Devil's Icebox is an amazing entrance to the cave even if you aren't spelunking. The park is a great experience.

I grew up in Columbia and went to Rock Bridge grade school. This park has been developed into a great hiking area in the past 40 years. It's beautiful!!

We enjoyed Rock bridge! The park rangers station was very helpful with giving us a map and information! It had rained a lot so didn't get to go walk in the cave but that would have been awesome!

The hiking around Devil's Icebox is beautiful, and well maintained. The other trails are varied in length and terrain, so you should be able to find hiking appropriate to any group.
