Bluff View

Bluff View

Bluff View is the newest addition to the St. Louis county network of trails. This 5 mile round-trip singletrack trail was built in 2012 by GORC and Americorps volunteers. The Bluff View trail features some rocky outcroppings, sustained climbs and descents and beautiful terrain. The trail's namesake will make you stop in your tracks to take in the expansive view of the Meramec river and Crescent Valley. If you know where to look you can pick out hints of the Chubb trail hillsides and a section of the Al Foster.

The Bluff View trail connects to the Al Foster trail. The western half of the Zombie Trail is now complete and can be accessed from the Rock Hollow paved trail. Switchbacking you up through, under and around spectacular rock formations Zombie weaves in and out of multiple hollows and eventually leads you back to the pavement.

Between Sherman Park, Al Foster, Rock Hollow and now Bluff View, you can assemble a lengthy ride in multiple configurations.

Directions

From St. Louis - Get on I-44 towards Six Flags but exit before you get that far on Hwy 109 heading north, then proceed 3.0 miles and go right on Old State Road then right immediately on Washington Ave/Grand Ave. to the parking lot on your left.

Zombie (W) - not BV. Not as bad as expected. Few bad spots (with few tire ruts). Hiking/running ok. Deep (knee) leaves on the trail from the high winds. Threw 100 limbs off the trail; 1 med. tree down. 2 guys could break it free and roll it off.

Condition + tree down: BV & Zombie were frozen yesterday and riding well however the newest stuff on the other side of paved path was not rideable based on getting more direct sun. Tree down on BV, 1/3 of the way up the hill from Al Foster

Avoid BV for a couple days due to stretches of mush whereas Zombie (RH) was rideable.

Darn the luck! Trails were just starting to dry out but unfortunately it's raining now....

North facing trail is still good but anything else is getting slimy. Give it a day above freezing and it will be reasonable.
