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 and will soon connect to the Rock Hollow paved trail. 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 Trail* - Frozen snowy awesomeness. North south run from cave, only issue is deep frozen ruts in places covered by snow to watch out for. Good to go under 32 degrees.

Quick ride after work PRIMO battery died on my light so couldn't try zombie, but a passerby said it was only slightly wet.

Very muddy - any riding on trail will cause problems today. I started at the bottom, got the first switch back and decided it was too muddy. I asked some hikers about it and they said it just gets worse as you go up.

* Zombie Trail * Shockingly good. Rode north south from Rock Hollow past cave. Fast and flowy, few damp spots on the switchbacks, few wet climbs and muddy spots but other than that awesome! Freeze thaw may take hold next week.

As jmac said parts of the trail totally destroyed by horses. Barely ridable in those spots, hoof prints 7-8 inches deep, looks like the trail was carpet bombed in spots, plus lots of horse apples on trail. Shame, was slowing improving.
