Starting Location: 1721 S Mason Rd, St. Louis, MO 63131 (entrance to park from Mason Road)
Parking Information: We will use the parking lot over by the Dog Museum which is accessed from Mason Road.
Course Description: 2 hour run
Starting from the parking lot off of Mason, suggest running North along the paved perimeter path till you can hop off onto the gravel trails and then just create various loops within the gravel trails of the park to avoid the pavement. You can easily get a 3-4 mile loop in using just the gravel paths by the time you get back to the parking lot to give you an idea of various loops to make. The trails here are nice and wide and some areas rockier than others, and also great for hill work. There are some flat sections as well so you can enjoy the scenery.
The map below highlights the gravel trails, as well as the paved trails if you do choose to use them. I would not spend to much time though on the paved portions and focus more on the gravel/dirt portions.
