Rock Hollow Trail Description

The Rock Hollow Trail offers a beautiful, wooded excursion in the City of Wildwood, just west of St. Louis. The paved 2.3-mile trail is built on what was once Lawler-Ford Road. A trailhead with parking is available at its northern end, adjacent to Ridge Meadows Elementary School, and the trail slopes downhill from there. More than a dozen wooden bridges can be found along the trail, as well as several benches to stop and enjoy the scenery.

The trail is part of the growing Great Rivers Greenway network and connects to the Hamilton Carr Trail and the Al Foster Memorial Trail, which are also part of the system.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available at the trailhead at the trail’s north end, adjacent to Ridge Meadows Elementary School (777 Ridge Rd., Ellisville, MO).

Rock Hollow Trail Reviews

My family & I walked the full 2.4 miles both ways. Super smooth asphalt all the way. From the school parking lot it is all down hill so be prepared for an up hill walk back to your car. The trail is in a valley and lined with trees and flowing creeks. It is a fun trail to walk and pretty easy.

This is a nice trail that is very sheltered and all in the trees. Just remember if you are going south (to the river) it is almost all down hill. If going north (away from the river), it is up hill.
I started from the north and ran to the river and felt great and went another mile on the gravel trail along the river. Started back and it was a nice workout coming back. The last quarter mile is a nice hard finish!

No dogs allowed! Important piece if information!


Because the trail is at the bottom of a valley, you cant help but be immersed in nature. I cant wait until the trees leaf out and the wild flowers start blooming. I have some health issues so I did not make it to the end but I hope to make it there and back by mid summer. Im guessing I will be adding that 5th star when I see the end of the trail!
