St. Louis Riverfront Trail

Sketch?

June, 2020 by gabe_kimble

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.

Busch Greenway

Pretty Trail

June, 2020 by gabe_kimble

Love this trail, it’s beautiful with running water which really adds to the whole experience. My fiancé and I parked at the trail head and road up the hill and around the business park. We then went back down the hill and took the trail to the Katy trail headed towards Good News Brewing. The Greenway is, well, GREEN, and we loved having a paved path. We then followed Katy trail up to Augusta Brewing, shared a pitcher of beer and came on back. All in it was a 38 mi ride. It was definitely a great way to spend our Sunday!

St. Louis Riverfront Trail

Great, secluded, trail

May, 2020 by gavinr

The trail is not super busy, but quite long (for St. Louis). The scenery is industrial near St. Louis, but is more natural the farther north you get, with a few great Mississippi views. The section of the trail within North Riverfront Park is new and smooth!
