If your looking for a great workout then this trail is for you. The full trail is about 14.5 miles in full. There are some good long heart pumping hills before and after melrose road. Besides that it's consistently up and down. There's a scenic trail about 5 miles in that is about .7 miles. Wasn't the most scenic. Towards the end of the trail you'll be right behind six flags and can smell the funnel cakes and hear the roller coasters. Also towards the end of the trail there's a lot more overgrowth you'll go through, so be wear pants bc you'll definetly get a few ticks. I would recommend going to the scenic lookout and back, not much to see after that.

My bf and I use this trail to train for bigger hikes. (currently training for half dome in yosemite) its just long, the trail is more like 14.5, maybe more..it took us 9 hours but thats the most i ever gone. start very early!!! my knee started to hurt towards the end. hiking poles are for sure needed especially after rain.

Hiked just the Rockwoods Range section and it was a wonderful hike - signage could be better but overall I would recommend this hike.

We did the Round House Loop Trail here (about 3.5 miles) and it was not my favorite hike around St Louis. Since it's moderately trafficked, we walked through spiderwebs the entire time. I hike all the time and have never experienced anything it before. It's also not very scenic and is not marked well at all! There are 2 trail heads within 30 feet of each other so be sure you start on the right one if you decide to go.

The length of the trail listed is incorrect. Its actually 16.3 miles. The trail head listed is the northern ending point, in Rockwoods Reservations. The southern trailhead, or starting point is on the north outter road on HWY 44, about 1 mile west of Allenton Road. The trail is very well marked, and allows biking in the Greensfelder park area, but not in the Rockwoods Reservation area.
