River Scene Trail (red arrows) This three-mile loop is the most spectacular trail in the park and highlights the parks most memorable features. The trail climbs to and then traverses a series of bluffs overlooking the Meramec River. It then goes down a long wood staircase that takes you from the top of the bluffs to the valley below. From there, the trail takes you through an up-close and personal look at the river and the bottomland surrounding it. Along the way, you will pass panoramic vistas, remnants of the historic resort era and floodplain forest. This trail is designated for hiking and bicycling (hiking only on the bluff portion).

Beginning of the trail is hard to figure out. The sign makes it seem like you're on the trail but we unknowingly ended up on the steeper (black dashes) trail. Trail has several points where you're not sure where to go so definitely use your gps. Met quite a few people along the trail including mountain bikes. Views are spectacular.
