On Saturday, February 18, River Rats Chris and Alex and their families joined Arnold Stream Team, The Open Space Council and the Metropolitan Sewer District to improve the Meramec River floodplain in South St. Louis County near Baumgartner and Lemay Ferry Road. A total of 51 volunteers helped remove 40 cubic yards of trash, tons of scrap metal, and over 250 tires from the area. Much of the trash had accumulated over the years from old clubhouses and past floods. Great effort guys! (Click on “Read More” below for more photos and text.)

Troop NewsNew Year’s Hike
January 1, 2012
Rock Hollow Trail
Wildwood, Mo.



The first day of 2012 was very blustery, as an approaching cold front brought winds gusting to 40-50mph. We still had a great time on the hike as Rock Hollow provided some protection from the wind and the 41 degree temperature was warmer than some of the New Year’s hikes in recent memory.

After meeting at Michael’s parking lot at 10:00am we drove to the Al Foster trailhead in Glencoe, Mo. From there we hiked the Al Foster Trail 1 mile east along the Meramec River to the Rock Hollow Trail following it 2.3 miles north to the trailhead on Ridge Road. We then returned by the same route for a total of approximately 6.6 miles. While we saw a few other small groups, we felt secluded for the most part.

The recently opened Rock Hollow Trail is among the most scenic of Great Rivers Greenway Trails. The paved 2.3 mile trail leads hikers and bikers through a wooded valley that crisscrosses a wet weather creek utilizing 13 masterly crafted wooden bridges.
