From the Riverfront Heritage Trail web site
The Riverfront Heritage Trail is a fully accessible ten-mile bike and pedestrian pathway that begins at the
riverfront and winds through the oldest and most historic parts of bi-state Kansas City. It is the first of
its kind in Downtown Kansas City. It links communities, parks, and exciting destinations with unique new
venues and dramatic public artworks. Historical markers along the Trail will create a journey through the
early history of this region.
The Riverfront Heritage Trail is under construction by a coalition of public and private stakeholders
including the City of Kansas City, Missouri; Unified Government of Wyandotte County and Kansas
City, Kansas; Port Authority of Kansas City, Missouri; and Kansas City River Trails, Inc. These partners
are committed to developing a high quality trail and along the way improving and beautifying the adjacent
urban landscape. Along the route of the Trail considerable effort has been expended to improve
infrastructure, replace barren land, and clean up or remove blight. Moreover, the Trail is designed to
complement existing architectural investments.
You can access the trail in several places, including Richard L. Berkley Riverfront Park, City Market, West Bottoms-James Street and Westside Neighborhood in Kansas City, MO, and Huron Park and Armstrong Avenue in Kansas City, KS.
