This is the first hike I would say I really enjoyed the view. Water, and beautiful trees in the distance.

Shaded trail. Paved, narrow in some places. The trail parts near the river are especially nice. It was 85+ degrees but on the trail, very cool. Didn't encounter but a few people. Bring bug spray - mosquitoes and chiggers. Once applied, have fun as they didn't bother us!!!

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.
