Enjoyed the bluff view. There are a lot of mountain bikers. Lots of mosquitoes.

Hiked this with my three kids, 12,9 and 5. They aren’t ones for long hikes, but they enjoyed this 5 mile out and back with a great lookout at the turn. Close enough to civilization that you have cell service in the event you suddenly hear thunder and need to check radar, as we did. I highly recommend this trail for families in the STL area looking for a nearby hike.

I’m relatively new to mountain biking, but could not imagine a more enjoyable, picturesque trail.

Good overall Trail with little bit of everything, along the river, along a vertical bluff, then a little elevation, forest, a little stream, culminates into a picturesque valley view with a river running through it, and then back.

Great trail with a good mix of uphill and downhill. Beautiful view at the top. Hikers and mountain biker use both, most bikers give good warning that they are coming up behind you as the trail is narrow.

Easier to find trailhead in Bluffview Park rather than by the railroad. Nice hike but lots of bikers.

Great views of the Meramec River. Get on the trail early to avoid the mountain bikers!

I have yet to make it the whole way on this trail. There's always significant amounts of mud somewhere that deter me from continuing. However, someday I will finish. The overlooks are neat and only a short distance from the parking lot.
