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.
Trail was well maintained and 99% free of litter. Hiked on a rare 70 degree February day and saw several other folks. Several great valley views, and overall very nice scenery. Some good ups & downs to get the heart rate going as well as some easier sections. Minus one star because you can hear the highway almost the entire time.
One of the better trails in the area for sure.
Very beautiful area - needs better signage but overall was a great hike
Very beautiful! Liked that there were man made and natural places to sit and enjoy the views.
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.
