Maramec spring is the fifth largest in Missouri, and pumps 100 million gallons of fresh water a day! Enjoy the stunning emerald water from a walkway around the spring. The water that bubbles up comes from more than 350 feet below the surface of the Earth. This causes the water to be 56 degrees year round. When this land served as an Ironworks in 1829, the Spring was used for power.

A paved, ADA accessible trail loops around the Spring, where you can view fish in the stunning emerald water. Bring quarters for fish food! 🐟  Along the path, you can also see the trout hatchery at various stages of growth, which leads to the public fishing areas. Cross the park road under a tunnel to see the remains of the iron works.
