Date: October 10th, 2015 - 9am - 1pm


Location: Rock Hollow


What: We will continue building new singletrack trail working our way to the paved trail crossing. Lunch will be served by STLCo Parks. We'll be working from the rock overhang towards the paved trail and also from the pavement back toward the overhang to meet in the middle.


There is a LOT of trail to build, we hope for a good crowd. You can ride post-lunch at Bluff View or Al Foster to Castlewood, weather-permitting.


Where: Rock Hollow and Packwood Park, which will eventually be eight miles of new, multi-use trail in St. Louis County.


Meet at Ridge Meadows Elementary, 777 Ridge Rd, Ellisville, MO 63021. 


Directions: Take I-44 west to 109 (first Eureka exit, before Six Flags exit), then go north on 109 to Old State Rd, turn right and follow Old State Rd 2.9 miles to Ridge Rd, where you

Thank you to all the hard-working volunteers that helped build some more Zombie Rock trail! We had a dedicated crew work some great lines in near the rock overhang and we had a handful of volunteers leading 40+ high school / college newbies building trail from the pavement back toward the overhang.


So..... this means that we could use your help at the next trail build on Rock Hollow this fall season to get the trail completely connected from the pavement to the rock overhang.  STL County has been granted an Americorp team that will hopefully build the proposed reroute pending Wildwood's approval. This would fix the private land encroachment and completely connect the western half of Rock Hollow (low pavement entrance to high pavement exit if you start near the river).


Cross  your fingers. Better yet, sign up for the next trail build!

What's the tentative plan for the reroute? Simply move across the creek earlier and stay on the north side?

Yes, that would be one solution.  There are a few possible solutions.  Ultimately, we want to use as much of the built trail as possible while not encroaching on the neighbors.  The alternatives have been given to Wildwood for their review.  I'm not sure we'll get an answer before the 24th though.


Thanks to everyone that came out on Saturday.  It's great to see big crowds of volunteers not afraid of the zombie's!
