I enjoyed it
Lived here 20 years. Always walked at Creve Coeur Lake but had no idea there was such a great path in the woods! Just have to beware of bikers and runners if you are hiking.
Fun fast well maintained trail. Single track. Posts show which way you should go to either continue running or head back out. Wildlife can be seen which is fantastic. Can be crowded with walkers and bikers so be mindful.
Great trail that's well maintained.
This is a fast course that is easy to ride! One lane only so watch for oncoming traffic and hikers. It's really cool going under the people zip lining over the trail.
The trail was great, there were plenty of hikers out but they were all pleasant and allowed the bikers to pass. We saw a deer herd after going uphill and despite the endurance challenge of traveling up there, it was satisfying going down. This trail was adventurous and a therapeutic ride. So far we've rode this trail twice since the warm weather and will soon be riding it again. It was hard to find so we used google maps and searched the Go ape zip line and we were able to drive our bikes to this trail. On our first attempt without google, we rode the Katy trail from St. Charles then carried our bikes up the 30-100 flight of stairs to start the trail. I seriously advise using Google!!! Have a fun ride ;-)
