A mediocre trail at best, nothing to special about it really, no great views, not a lot of history, very populated and well marked. Great for a day hike. A great trail for someone who just wants a nice stroll in the woods. There are prettier trails in the Saint Louis area, Louis and Clark being one of them.
Christopher S. on Chubb Trail
Hiked this on the 26th of Feb 2017 with some of the guys i work with. I was surprised at how busy it was, trail runners and bikers a plenty. It was ok because there was plenty of room on the well travelled trail! Temperature was just under 50 degrees and no ticks, no bugs of any kind actually.
All in all i really liked the trail, we hiked the entire trail both directions and didn't lose it once. We stopped and hung out on a sandy beach area on the river and had lunch, a small fire and overall enjoyed hanging out.
I would go back again if i was not leaving soon!
Started out in Glenco at the Wabash and Pacific mini railroad - took the scenic path first - (about a 1/2 mile) then went down to the river access and checked out the river - then headed up the actual gravel trail until I got to the cutover for the Rock Hollow trail. Over all the part of the Al Foster trail I was on was ok - not difficult at all - so it would be fine for beginners or kids.
