DescriptionPocketed Limestone facing northwest towards afternoon light and sunsets.
Getting ThereFrom the car, there is a 15 min hike or a 5 minute bike ride to mile marker 4. This point can be reached by following the Chubb Trail towards the Meramec River and east toward Castlewood Park and Lone Elk trail head. Following the trees along the north side of the railroad tracks provide great shade during the summer months. Do Not Cross the rail road tracks at the trail head parking area. Do not hike and follow the rail road tracks. The rail road crossing is for tail users but do not stand on or hangout near the tracks.
At Chubb Trail mile marker four (#4), look due south and follow the faint trail up the rocky embankment. Continue up the steep slope to gain access to the base of the limestone exposure. Chubb Trail Crack is a great trad line that sucks up pro. Just right and left of the crack is a sport line with safety bolts and rap anchors. Do not pull plants out of the pockets. Many of the plants are flowers and provide shelter for salamanders and other things calling this area home. Remember to pack out everything you pack in and be conscious of any animal waste, or barking noise, that could annoy horses, other nature lovers, or ultimately effect future enjoyment and use of the area. Happy exploring this limestone gem.
