Salt Lick Hike

Participation in STLRC Rides & Hikes is at your own risk. STLRC assumes no liability.

Starting Location:  Salt Lick Trailhead near  of underground office park near Old Valmeyer, IL

Meeting time: 9:45 am

Time of Departure:  10:00 am

Description: We will hike a rocky, hilly trail  with several stream crossings  where you balance from rock to rock.  The first one to two miles are flat.  Then there is a gradual hill going up to New Valmeyer and then we return.  We are not hiking the steep bluff trail this time.  These are very scenic trails in the Old Valmeyer, IL area.  Boots and sticks are recommended.    Bring a lunch or sizeable snack  to eat halfway through (at New Valmeyer).

Difficulty Level: Moderate



  • Take I-270/255 South East across JB Bridge
  • Exit 6, Columbia/Hwy 3 driving .8 to Palmer Road.
  • Right on Palmer continuing as this road becomes Bluff Road
  • Continue on Bluff approximately 14 miles to Limestone Road
  • Go Left on Limestone Road at a large sign “Rock City”  There is also a small Salt Lick sign.
  • Take an immediate left into the parking lot.  If you pass Margraphics at the park or reach 156 you’ve gone too far.

Special Considerations at this time

  • Social distancing of 6 ft.
  • Bring mask to wear if requested
  • Stay home if you feel ill or have been exposed to the Coronavirus.
