Glassberg is one of the newest conservation areas in the St. Louis region. The area lies in the Ozark border region with soils derived from limestone and dolomite. It's also in the important Labarque Creek watershed, a rare and unique haven for aquatic wildlife. The hiking trail encounters a variety of plant communities, and the woods are dominated by oaks, hickory, maple, and cedar with an understory of flowering dogwood and redbud. A viewing platform affords onlookers a sprawling, elevated view of the Meramec River.
