Getting There

Rugged, forested hills and steep, narrow valleys, canyons, bluffs and shelter caves carved into St. Peter sandstone. At least 52 species of fish have been identified in the creek and this diversity is almost three times greater than that of any of the 15 other tributaries of the Meramec River below LaBarque Creek. A variety of unique natural communities, such as sandstone glades, cliffs and seeps, exist in the watershed. Many migratory bird species breed in the area, including wood thrush, Acadian flycatcher, Eastern wood-pewee, worm eating warbler, ovenbird, yellow-throated vireo, summer tanager and great-crested flycatcher.

Missouri Department of Conservation 2360 Highway D St. Charles, MO 63304 636/441-4554

From Eureka, take Highway 109 south to Route FF west, then Route F south approximately 100 feet, then Doc Sargent Road west, then Valley Drive south about 0.5 mile to the parking lot. When you turn onto Doc Sargent Rd, the small brown sign is on your left at the bottom of a small hill and the road to the CA veers off to the left.

Beautiful trail with lots of rock formations, small water crossings and elevation changes. Fairly challenging throughout. Would definitely recommend following the signs and going left once you hit the loop (clockwise).

Nice hike with scattered rock formations. Hiking with the leaves down gave some decent views from the peaks of some of the hills.

HikingGreat!

Fun hike. Nearly 3 miles. A couple of wet slippery spots on the downhill return. Nothing that can’t be avoided by stepping into the dry leaves. Did not see the cave. Would love to know where it is for the next visit.

Understandably muddy, but a perfect training hike for our urban dog, & a great Sunday getaway. Look forward to checking it out when it’s not cold & snowy in January.

Nice moderate trail. Went after some mixed winter weather so was fairly muddy and slick throughout but pretty with the light snow/ice on the trees. Saw only one other person. Waterfall areas are about 2 miles in on the left if you follow the trail direction as indicated. If you want to see them, they are off the trail and require some sure footing and creativity to find your way down to them
