The Chubb Trail is about 40 minutes from downtown. It is a 7 mile trail connecting West Tyson Country Park to Lone Elk Park.  There are parking lots at either end, but nothing in the middle, so you'll either need to get shuttled, leave a car at either end, or hike out and back. From West Tyson, the trail is rockier, steeper, and in general more challenging than from Lone Elk. The first couple of miles from Lone Elk are flat river bottom single track as it follows the Meramec River. This portion can flood, but there is a high water route. For more information, St. Louis County Parks webpage provides access to West Tyson County Park and Lone Elk Park: Also, GORC's (Gateway Off-Road Cyclists) website is very detailed, complete with trail descriptions, directions, and a [downloadable] map. While it is geared towards mountain bikers, hikers will find it beneficial. Photography by Gateway Off-Road Cyclists
