Since this question comes up a lot this time of year, and there have been a few incidents related to it recently, here's the latest info:

Parks Which Allow Night Riding:
--Bluff View (aka Zombie, dirt connector and paved Rock Hollow NOT Al Foster) (until 10pm)

--Lost Valley (until 10pm)
--SIUE
--Riding is also permitted on the roads at the Busch Wildlife Area.
--In St.Charles County Parks, unless it is part of one of the night rides organized by the Parks Dept., riding is permitted only until 30 minutes after sunset.

Ozark Trail, Council Bluff, and Berryman is open 24/7.
I support Parade Bags for all horses in county parks!

I believe Chubb allows night rides 1 night a month, It's a designated day by the County.

Come on up to Jeff City and ride Binder, open all night and fun as hell. Also Forest City Trail in St. James. You can also ride Rhett's Run in Columbia. Lots of options!

I finished a night ride at 9 tonight on Bluff View.  A county officer came in and asked what we were doing since the signs at the entrance still say that the park closes a half hour after sunset.  I told him the park had been open until 10 for years.  He checked Google, and since Google agreed with me he said he would tell his supervisor the signs needed to be changed.  First off, it worries me that Google gets the final say on if I get a ticket or not.  And second, it worries me that it may be cheaper and easier to change the park hours back to half hour after sunset than to change the signs.
