Lone Wolf Trail is a 1.5 mile loop trail located near Ballwin, Missouri that features a river and is rated as moderate. The trail is primarily used for camping, hiking, mountain biking & walking. Lone Wolf Trail (orange arrows) This 1.5-mile loop parallels the River Scene Trail on top of the bluffs before plunging into the Kiefer Creek valley. The trail then follows the south bank of Kiefer Creek. There is also a creek crossing that connects this trail with Grotpeter Trail. The trail was originally built to allow bicyclists access to the bluff area, but it is also an excellent hiking trail. Features along the trail include beautiful ridge top views, fern covered bluffs and a gravel strewn creek bed. The trail is named in honor of the Lone Wolf Club, a speak easy/tavern from the historic resort era. The club is adjacent to the park near the trail on private property.

Lovely hike by a river and with fantastic views from the bluffs. This trail has some traffic on a Saturday morning, but overall less busy than the River Scene Trail and, in my opinion, more serene and beautiful.

IMO, one of the best parks and trails in the county. Great for a quick walk, run, or hike through a beautiful area. Awesome place to get some regular exercise.

It is dog friendly but is best to keep them on leash.

Bring bug spray during the summer. There are ticks and mosquitos.

Great trail. One of my favorites for a quick run. Really steep to start out but the views of the river from the top are spectacular. The back of the trail runs right along the river and is very nice.
