The views from these bluffs are not only spectacular but historical as well. Early Indian tribes appreciated the bluff's beauty and established several villages nearby. This bluff was first documented in the early 1800s by explorer Zebulon Montgomery Pike (of Pike’s Peak fame) who named it La Belle Roche "The Beautiful Rock" when he and his band of Osage Indians and soldiers first camped along the banks of the Osage River at what is now the beautiful Lake of the Ozarks in central Missouri.
