From Saint Louis:
Arrow Rock can be reached by taking 1-70 to Missouri Highway 41 North. If you are headed West from St. Louis, take Exit No. 98. If it’s beautiful countryside you’re looking for, then the short drive (about 11 miles) to Arrow Rock won’t disappoint.
From Kansas City:
Traveling East from Kansas City take Exit 89 and follow the Arrow Rock State Park signs to Highway 41 North.
