Runner Notes

Would be fine for running .

Description

A loop trail that takes you from the Maritz Trail House down the hill to the Meramec River and back. You view some beautiful glades and amazingly large and tall trees. A side spur takes to to a gravel bar and into the Meramec River if you want. The trail is well-marked.

Flora & Fauna

The trees are huge and tall which suggests to me that this area was either never logged or it was logged a really long time ago.

The Meramec River off in the distance.

Perhaps the fattest tree I've ever seen in Missouri. Do these leaves make my trunk look fat?

You have to stop by and look at this.

As soon as they put up the sign, I felt I had to cross the ravine which is much deeper than it appears in the photo.
