Just off the Ozark Highlands Trail is a rather gorgeous gem: Punchbowl Falls. The hike isn’t the easiest but the turquoise waters of Punchbowl Falls is a stunning reward for taking on its challenging three miles. Let’s lace up our boots and head out to this gorgeous area in the Richland Creek Wilderness.
