Beulah Trail, Greensfelder County Park

Distance: 1.85 miles round trip
Location: Eureka, Missouri
Date: May 20, 2013

The Beulah Trail is a loop on the eastern side of Greensfelder County Park in western St. Louis County, Missouri. The trail starts at the top of a ridge near a shelter and follows this ridge for about a half mile across fairly flat terrain. But the trail then turns north and downhill, losing 300 feet in elevation across the next half mile.


Once in the valley, the trail continues through the valley for less than a half mile. After a short walk through the valley (which was quite muddy from the recent rains and horse use), the trail turns uphill and rapidly gains elevation before arriving on a ridge. The trail follows the ridge for another half mile before returning to the trailhead.

I did not see another person during my visit to the park on a Monday afternoon, but the trails do appear to be used by horses with some frequency. All of this trail goes through heavily forested areas with no clearings or views of any kind. This is quite a nice trail, if not for the the muddy sections and the relatively steep sections and elevation gain. This trail is also open to mountain bikers.

See my track on AllTrails for more details.
