Nice St. Louis County Park located just east of Eureka off Lewis Road. Trails are well kept that run through woods up and down bluffs. The Chubb Trail trail head is also located in the park. 4 Miles of trails are located within the park. Part of the park's trail system connects to the Chubb Trails. Trails are well kept with plenty of room for hiking, mountain biking and horse back riding. Parts of the trail consist of dirt path, gravel covered and bed rock. You will experience a few elevation changes on the trails. Park has excellent facilities.
The trailhead here is pretty, even before you hit the trail. There is some short hills but nothing even this beginner hiker wasn't able to handle. I love the part of the trail that runs along side a long rock bluff. All shady it was comfortable even though it was warm and humid today. It still had some boggy spots from rain a few days ago, and the mosquito were irritating even though we sprayed ourselves with Deep Woods Off, but those two things couldn't dampen our enjoyment of the trail.
The trail is close to St Louis and has a couple nice views. Some mountain bike use. Picnic table at nice spot about halfway point. Historic Native American sites along trail where mining pits show excavation for flint to make arrowheads and other tools.
Nice unpacked trail with several short hills
Good trail up to a nice overlook.
Decent trail. Nice inclines.
Loved The Chubb. However, it was so overwhelmed with water no hikers went in like we did. We had to take out boots and socks off and walk through rivers and snake infested fields turned into ponds to get through. The mud smells rancid but it was fun. If you start at Lone Elk and do the loop, the uphill at the end is challenging, especially with a pack. I found it to be a great challenge and the cold water invigorated my feet to keep going. Can't wait to do The Chubb dry and see if it is still challenging. The part of the trail that goes through the pasture is not so great. Sandy area is good exercise but very overgrown, hard to watch for snakes and not any changes in elevation. The second half of that trail goes through the woods that look like, if there is a Bigfoot, it is definitely living there! Do The Chubb!
Sloppy on the Lone Elk side after some heavy rain. But beautiful and green. The West Tyson side is tough but a real treat.
Good. Got lost but it all turned out okay.
There are a few places where the trail is not marked well and kind of gets lost but still was a great hike.
Nice trail. Enjoyed. Did get a little turned around at one point due to leaves in the fall covering parts of the trail in a forested area.
It provided the challege I needed woth changing terrain and with the leaves off the trees I had the surprise of glimpses of the river!
Such a cool little park. Great start for beginners too. Did the acorn trail, saw a turkey, and tons of squirrels. Beautiful lookout at the top.
I hiked the 4.0 trail, and it was awesome. It got a little confusing, but was easy to find the trail.
Beautiful hike on a fall day. Tricky footing due to roots. On the beautiful day we went, there were a couple dozen other hikers - scouts maybe - and occasional mountain bikers. Very enjoyable - will be back.
