    Looking for trails near St. Louis

    Hey all,

    I just recently moved down to St. Louis, specifically Clayton, from SE Michigan, and I'm looking for some decent singletrack. Any suggestions? Around here or even not too far in southern Illinois?

    Thanks!

    My favorite area trail is Greensfelder. It's rocky and challenging in several spots and you can put together 12 to 15 mile laps. If I want to ride something a little easier and closer to home I go to Castlewood. If I really want to punish myself I go to Chubb. These trails are all found near I-44.

    There are also good trails out west along I-64. Lost Valley, Matson and Klondike are the first that come to mind. You really should check out GORC, great group of volunteers and advocates.

    +1 that Greensfelder is the best St. Louis County st and Matson is probably the best in St. Charles County. The good thing about Matson, Lost Valley and Klondike is you can link them up via the katy trail for some decent mileage. You can do the same with Greensfelder and Castlewood but recently saw they take a few roads to link those up. Welcome and don't count out some riding in Ozarks trails either.
