Starting Location: 101 Grand Ave, Glencoe, MO 63038 (trail head)
Parking Instructions - The 2nd paved parking lot will be our starting location (this is the one just before the mini train station and is the newest lot) - there is one at the corner of Washington and Grand when the main lot fills, and there are some gravel lots just past the train station closer to the trail itself you may use.
10K = 1 loop (4 or 6 miles)
13.1 = 1-2 loops (6 or 10 miles)
SEE MAP BELOW ---- UPDATED MAP AS OF FRIDAY 3:40pm!!!!
Everyone will run up to the Bluff View overlook to start with which will put you roughly at or just over 2 miles to the scenic overlook. From there turn around and head back down the trail. Those in the 10K group simply continue on back to the parking lot the same way you started to finish the run at ~4 miles.
Those in the 13.1 group, and any in the 10K group who want a little longer, due to a portion of the intended trail being under water we will now take the Bluff View trail all the way back down to the gravel Al Foster Trail like the 4mi loop....then you will turn LEFT on that and run out roughly another half mile to where you will see the paved Rock Hollow Trail and another mini train tracks crossing - I put 2 ORANGE flags here to mark your U-turn....turn around and then head all the way back on the trail only instead of turning towards the parking lot keep STRAIGHT on the gravel path....you will then cross the creek along a paved bridge and continue on the gravel till it dead ends....turn around and make your way back, this time you will turn LEFT to head to the parking lot. This will still put you ~6 miles total.
For those in the 13.1 group to get the 10 miles simply run back up to the bluff overlook and then back down, the same 4mi loop those in the 10K ran. Feel free to refuel if needed before heading out on this one.
