  • if you're city folk, beware the county police. they care about things like slightly expiretd plates, and the park where people drive through slowly is a great place for them to pull you over and meet their quotas! other than that, I love this park. my favorite part is the section of the river view trail down by the meramec where you can see enormous sycamores that have been growing there for hundreds of years. great place to hike, splash around in a stream, and see wildlife. many scenic overlooks as well.
  • Great park, been going there for many years. Beautiful view looking off the bluffs, if you go swimming in the river make sure you know how to swim. (seems like someone wades out and drowns in the Meramec every year)
  • Best park in West County for hiking, MTBing and relaxing. Upper trails are good for running even right after the rain. Great views, hills, flats - love this place!
  • Plenty of dogs to meet and greet 💕 perfect hike 😍 finished it off with some time on the swing set 😎 Scenery and trail gave me a Grand Canyon type vibe. Definitely going back and bringing more people.
  • The views at this place are great! Almost forgot I was still in the Lou! I would recommend this park for hikes especially!
