Welcome to St Louis, Check out the gravel post at the bottom of the GORC page. Lost Valley-Busch Wildlife area and Katy trail are the most popular gravel rides in the area. Joe Dirt in South Central MO is nice but requires a 1.5 hour drive. There might be some "map my ride" routes in Illinois which is more agriculture based. Good luck.

This is one of the more popular gravel rides around.  About 25% road however the roads have very little traffic.  Some tough gravel in there.  2nd one is a longer version with 10 more miles, about half of that gravel, had of it road

Head to Busch Wildlife in St. Charles near 64 and 94. Lots of gravel and secondary roads in the park and surrounding area.
