The Arcadia Valley Region and Black River Recreation
Area Near St. Louis in the
Mines Recreation Area
Back in the 1920s this area was mined for
silver and tungsten ore. Although long since played out,
the remnants of two old abandoned mines are present at the site.
Located on the banks of the St. Francis River, Silver Mines
is near Millstream Gardens where whitewater enthusiasts from
around the world bring their kayaks to enjoy the challenges
of the river in March, during spring high water. There
is a one-mile long trail along each side of the river. From
Turkey Creek Picnic Area, a 1.2 mile trail to the north leads
to Millstream Garden Conservation Area, managed by the Missouri
Department of Conservation. It's
a beautiful place to toss your hook into the water!
Camping is also available at Silver Mines. From Ironton take
Hwy 72 east to Hwy D. Go about 3 miles south on D to paved Forest
Road 2510. You'll see the Forest Service sign.
