Great park, very close to the city. begins with a moderate climb up the bluff followed by nice views of the Meramec River. A steep descent down some stairs and then a nice walk along the river banks. Plenty of room for mountain bikers and hikers. A pretty easy trail, we hiked it with three dogs and three kids under 5. All had a great time. The kids particularly liked the occasional passing train. Great hike, only 30 minutes from St. Louis.
