To protect fragile ecosystems and prevent soil compaction and erosion the Shawnee National Forest offers limited opportunities for rock climbing and rappelling. Therefore rock climbing and rappelling are not allowed in any of the 80 designated natural areas, which include Garden of the Gods Observation Trail and Rim Rock National Recreation Trail.

Currently rock climbing and rappelling are being permitted at Jackson Falls, near Ozark, IL on the Hidden Springs Ranger District; contact the Ranger District for more information, 618-658-2111. Click here for more details
