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.

Entrance to BV before S turns is wet and tricky, The rest of the trail is A+++, Zombie side has some mucky-seepage-mud sections, waterfall overhang is a mess, 1 tree down not disrupting flow at north end of trail.

Zombie to the re-route is good to go. The re-route is very wet after the on the overhanging waterfall, didn't ride beyond the waterfall. Bluffview is wet down low and should be walked thru a couple sections, but upper sections are all dry!

Looked very wet Zombie was the same from what I could see from the paved Rock Hollow. For overall decent riding I would think another day at least.

Almost called this one Green because Zombie is really, really good, but a few splashy areas. Bluff View has normal spots at the bottom, but 99% of both trails were pretty much Hero dirt tonight.

As if its not obvious, wet enough to damage you, your bike, and trail.

Sunday morning Zombie ride was great. Trail good. Still two trees down. One in valley before cave and one after cave.
