Good trail, took me and three kids an 1 1/2 hours. Couple of views of river and some shelters along the way. Saw a few deer along trail.
Beautiful scenic trails although not well maintained- lots of trees and branches down on the trails or I would've given 5 stars! We completed the Deer Hollow Trail to Fisher Cave and Bluff View trail, the trailheads are at same parking lot, for a total of 4.2 miles!
New visit this week to Meramec SP. each visit is better than the one before. Nice cave tours, couple small wild caves. Great river to Kayak/canoe. Full service for fee campgrounds very clean and nice. Great week of kayaking, hiking and just chilling.
PROXIMITY TO ST. LOUIS MAKES IF VERY BUSY ON WEEKENDS DURING THE SUMMER, RESERVATIONS BEST ON WEEKENDS
Meramec State park has every camping option from numerous backpacking sites to full cabins, electric sites-every camping option here. A good variety of trails to hike too. river view and bluff trails are two good short scenic trails, and the wilderness trail offers a 10 mile option for the hiker or backpackers. Great visitors center, with the short natural wonders trail nearby. They also rent canoes and rafts for floating the meramec nearby.
State Park campgrounds has fee camping from RV to tent with full range of amenities. Very clean well maintained. Canoeing destination. I have found all the Missouri state parks to be well maintained. This is an area where taxes are well spent.
