The 1,400-acre Rockwoods Range in southwestern St. Louis County is a bit of wilderness in the midst of big-city suburbs. While pedaling this seven-mile trail system, you'll think you are deep in the Ozarks instead of rubbing cheeks with one of the Midwest's largest cities. This network consists of three trails. The Round House Loop is a three-mile trail. The Fox Creek Spur is a .6-mile track connecting Round House to the south trailhead. Both of these trails are abandoned roads just wide enough for an ATV. Their steep climbs may be a little too tough for beginners, but if you’re a novice with strong legs, lungs, and attitude, go for it. The third option, Fox Run Trail, is a 3.5-mile path leading from Round House Loop northwest to the north trailhead. It is single-track for most of its length, with a couple of steep climbs and technical sections as it crosses Rabbit, Loon, and Spencer Hollows. It’s a great ride, but one probably best left to experienced riders.
