This trail is great! It's very shady. Mostly loose rocky, a few tree roots, but otherwise dry dirt and a nice wide path. Parking is available near by the Chubb trail head on the road.

More of an out-and-back than a loop. Great variety of rocky terrain with lots of moderate Hills to carry your momentum. It is my favorite trail to run so far in this area. Follow the "blue tree" trail markers for the Chubb trail, the "green falling rock" markers take you on a smaller loop for an extra excursion. I left from the Eureka trailhead and ended up turning around at about 5mi by the Meramac River because there were many fallen trees crossing the path and it was overgrown. (Still beautiful of course just not ideal for running). Pro tip: When you get to the equestrian grass path, thank the "river route" which parallels it. I first made the mistake of staying the course, and it is unpleasant to walk through the tall grass.
Pro tip 2: you need back woods bug spray.
Don't forget to check for ticks when you finish!

If you want to actually enjoy your hike and get some physical benefits from your hike, hike this. If you want to be around a ton of people but want some history, hike the Lewis and Clark.

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.

Best trail in the St. Louis area, should figure out a way to connect this with the Ozark Trail

Awesome!
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!
