Owens & Ricketts Mountains, Cane Creek Lake Kayaking, Kings River Falls
The Owens and Ricketts mountain areas south of Jasper near Cowell, offer some of the most spectacular rock formations in the state. Centuries old pictographs are also located here, which were drawn by prehistoric Native Americans. Kayak touring is becoming more and more popular, and a kayak excursion on Cane Creek Lake near Star City has an added attraction-giant water lily blooms. The Kings River Falls Natural Area in the Ozark National Forest is one of those pristine secrets of the Natural State. The beauty along this clear mountain stream really is something to behold.
