Eagle Points Trail

Straight, Flat and Barren

July, 2020 by lundquik2

I took my family here hoping to see an eagle or two. The trail was straight, flat and barren. We rode the trail about half it’s length and seeing nothing we turned around and went back to find a better trail to ride for the day.

St. Louis Riverfront Trail

Nice Paved Trail But Isolated and Industrial

July, 2020 by gabcshack

From the Arch area Biddle St, trail is primarily industrial, brushy and isolated along the levy wall, opens up a bit along the River, but tall grass keeps Mississippi hidden, as you get closer to chain of rocks bridge, pavement and scenery improves, biking across bridge was great, stop enjoy the view, overall great trail, be careful, ride with a friend, parking downtown can be challenging due to current construction.

St. Louis Riverfront Trail

A different kind of trail

June, 2020 by bigdealer

I usually ride on the MCT trails (across the river in Illinois) for their natural woodlands and wetlands. But I like to ride this trail at least once a year because of its more gritty, industrial and urban views. There will always be something going on (construction, minor flooding, etc.), but that's what I like to experience. Usually, you can make a long (~20 mile) loop that takes in both sides of the Mississippi, crossing the McKinley and Chain of Rocks bridges. But check to make sure the loop is completely open (currently it is not, because of bridge construction).

Columbia Bottom Trail - Missouri River Greenway

Went through the trail, got about a mile in before deciding that it was just too broken, lots of sections that couldn't be traversed with a city bike. Mountain bikes would be better, but still some sections your going to have to walk them.

Richland Creek Greenway Trail

Great leisurely trail

June, 2020 by tyler.tappendorf

I really enjoy riding this trail starting at Old Collinsville Road. I find the description above a bit confusing. It's described as "discontiguous" but you would never know that when riding, except for about 100 feet where the trail goes on a quiet neighborhood street. The path is clearly marked and crosses 161 with a push-button to stop traffic. Very foresty and leafy for the first half, before merging with the Metrolink trail for a short section (turn right and right again), then it goes down toward Belleville. Fairly flat and easy to ride with lots of cute parks to go through.

Riverwoods Trail - Missouri River Greenway

This trail has a lot of potential

June, 2020 by cmoss95events

I took my kids on this trail and they enjoyed it. I was a sunny day but the trail was mostly shady in some parts which was nice. I was disappointed to find that the trail is really closed due to river erosion. I hope that the agency(s) involved with this trail will work on fixing it and restoring the 'loop'.

Katy Trail State Park

one of the best!

June, 2020 by abigator22

Beautiful views, flat, and great quality trail made from crushed limestone. Works great with our hybrid bikes. My favorite stretch is from Defiance to Hermann. Some great places to stop along the way. It connects with the MKT in Columbia and you can ride all the way into town if you’re over on that side. Beautiful top notch trail.

Monarch-Chesterfield Levee Trail

smooth and elevated

June, 2020 by abigator22

Smooth easy paved trail. Connects to the Katy across the bridge if you want to use that too. Nice for someone who wants a somewhat long paved trail nearby.

I was very skeptical of this trail when my fiancé and I went out for a Memorial Day bike ride. We went parked at the lot shown in the main photo in Downtown STL and went north. It’s very industrial and has a rail yard and a lot of construction as well as many old building with graffiti. Once we were about 5 mi out, the trail opened up and was quite beautiful. We took the trail to the Old Chain of Rocks Bridge which was pretty and great to ride along! Just be sure you go with a friend as it seemed too sketch to be alone.
