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 Bluff trail is in great shape. Mind the loose-over-hardpack switchbacks.

Saw a guy caked in mud riding out of Bluff view. It's probably bad. I rode zombie and it was pretty great. Only a couple of small water puddles and the rock garden is slightly slick. All downed trees have been removed. Good to go.

Perfect. Zombie is clear top to bottom. Al Foster still needs some love east of Sherman Beach.
