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.


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.

Not quite Green conditions yet. Was on foot, saw a couple of mtb tracks. Squishy and slick in places. Should be good by Tuesday. In the waning daylight, there was still frost trailside in one place.

Aside from some heavy leaf coverage in spots, the trails (bv + zombie) are perfect. Rain overnight and in the am might drop it to yeller status for a day or two, especially with sub freezing temps Sunday night.

There are a few slick spots where the under leads are wet. But very tacky with lots of grip for most of the trail.

BV, Zombie, Al Foster, Stinging Nettle, CW all good to go. An occasional puddle or slick spot mid day Sunday, but was drying very quickly.
