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.


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.

Walked about 200 yards on the East side to get some leaning trees, As Matt posted, Wet and Greasy....Give it a few days to dry out, Thursday should be the pick of the week.

Zombie was in great shape on 3/4. Two trees down, one on Zombie West, just north of the rock garden. Another on Zombie East, just north of the switchback hill.
