    I think it's Cliff Cave county park but I haven't had a chance to ride over and verify.

    It won't show on google street view (the walkway) but you won't be wasting your time.

    Here is the new picture to chase. This may be too easy for many, but if folks need a more precise location I can certainly give some hints.

    Haha. First hint. West of France. Much further west.

    That one I had to look up. Oddly, they may be more connected in history than you might think.

    I think I saw you out the other day, user440. Your bike is visually quite unique. I was heading out Thursday morning, on my way north to the Iowa border and Athens MO. Was that you near the intersection of D and DD in St Charles County? Near the Gulf Station?

    If so, I know where this is, but will recuse myself....for now.

    I know where it is, well I know where several of those bunkers are, not sure about that particular one. Guess I could ride around and find that one.

    Unique can be taken a few different ways ;). She's slow, fat, and ugly but a whole lot of fun. Yep, that was very likely me.

    That's part of the fun, right? :) I will say that this particular one is on a main road and not off one of the "closed to non-motorized vehicle trails", because I'd never ride one of those of course. If someone dosen't get it this weekend I'll post a hint.

    Another hint courtesy of Wikipedia:
    During the 1940s portions of the area were used for the production of TNT and DNT. There are 100 old bunkers formerly used for the storage of TNT still in the area.

    The road this object is on is one of the northern most East /West roads in this area.

    Tried to bag this one this morning. Got 3 miles from home and was too freakin cold. I need to get some cold riding gear.

    It was 38 this morning in Dallas. Must have been freezing in ST Louis.

    30 here in the city and surely colder outside. Hoping next weekend is warmer for the middle of the map rally.

    Great Day; cold drizzly and I got some Fog too!

    I think this is the one. Threw me a loop as I kept looking for one with an open door. Most are welded shut. Then realized the one I wanted had the door shut.

    It had the same markings on the door.

    New one: 33 miles nearly due South from the Arch. Make sure you have gas, as not much around. This road could take you further south to see a historic French Fort; small town nearby with a grill for food if you get that far. Cool set of roads out here, a lot of gravel, with some opportunities for exploring near the river.

    Have fun:
