Meramec Conservation Area, a scenic forested landscape next to the beautiful Meramec River, can be explored by mountain bike via a winding 12-mile horse trail with two loops. You can pedal the outer trail for a ride of 10 miles or shorten your outing by riding the 8-mile north loop or the 5-mile south loop. This is a fun trail for riders of all skill levels. Beginners will appreciate the combination of closed roads, abandoned double-track, and ATV-width double-track that makes up the trail surface. Weakers riders will have to walk a few climbs, but most of the path is rideable and fun. This is a beautiful area. This trail is located 6 miles southeast of Sullivan.
