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).

Gets your blood pumping right away with a pretty good incline, beautiful lookout spaces once you reach the top. Well kept trails, once you begin your descent down you will reach several flights of stairs that allow for a few more photo ops along the way!
