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.

Access Info

Access to Bluff View Park is via Old State Road. The entrance is 6/10ths of a mile east of the intersection of Highway 109 and Old State Road (1900 Old State Road).
