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. The eastern part of Zombie features a 5-switchback climb getting you up to a highpoint, and then brings you down through a rock chute and heads back down 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.

This area received about 1 inch of heavy wet snow in the morning after rain all night. We were running in the snow on frozen ground, but by the time we exited the the trail, the surface was already starting to squish. Slippery!

BV-If you love riding 1.5 miles of freeze/thaw ruts this is your trail!!! Rock Hollow has smaller sections of ruts but all the new alternate sick/jump lines are worry some. This trail will soon resemble Chubb. Thanks.
