Pedestal Rocks Loop Trail
Approximately six miles East of Pelsor on Hwy. 16
This spectacular trail derives its name from the large number of weathered limestone columns that resemble huge pedestals which are interspersed along the bluff line. Caves and shelters are also formed as a result of the massive weathering. These are located along the base of the bluff line. From the top of the bluff, visitors can enjoy a wonderful panoramic view down into the valley of the Illinois Bayou’s North Fork. This is truly a scenic area, offering a glimpse of the ancient geology of the Ozarks.
