Missouri Riverfront Trail

A Valuable Transportation and Recreational Asset

March, 2019 by kirbyfarren

As of summer 2018 the Riverfront Trail is open it's full length from the western trailhead at 9 Highway to the eastern one in EH Young Riverfront park. I ride it regularly, find it to be in excellent shape and quite peaceful.

Starting at the western trailhead the trail is asphalt as it winds through quiet woods in the bottomland next to the Missouri River. As you continue, the trail climbs up to the Quindaro Bend Levee where it becomes pea gravel. The trail travels under Interstate 635 and 169 Highway before dropping down from the levee adjacent to Argosy Casino. From here, the trail becomes concrete and parallels the roads. Traffic into the casino can be heavy at times, so be mindful at road crossings. The trail finally ends just past the casino at EH Young Riverfront Park. Directly across the casino you can also access the Line Creek Trail, which will lead you into downtown Riverside and provide access all the way up to Barry Road, as well as the Briarcliff Linear Trail.

Eventually the Missouri Riverfront Trail is supposed to connect to English Landing Park in downtown Parkville. A concrete path has been poured leading to the park and is rideable, but it's exit (only 50 yards or so shy of English Landing) is currently gated off. I suspect this is due to a railroad right-of-way issue, as the path would need to be perilously close to the busy railroad tracks. Hopefully this connection is finished soon, as it would provide a car-free commuting route between Parkville and Riverside.

Route 152 Trail

under construction

January, 2019 by royalsfan1980

Now about 8 miles long, but construction continues. From the west end where the shopping center is, you can cross over I-29 on Old Tiffany SpringsRoad (narrow bridge but not much traffic.) Cross over to the old hotel they’re working on. From there take the walkway through apartment comple, then you’ll come to the new trail. Not officially open, but passable to Amity Road.

St. Joseph Riverwalk

beautiful trail to ride or walk

October, 2018 by jmj57751

You’ll love this trail. It goes along side with the Missouri river. Plenty to see and the people are nice.

Saint Joseph starting at Hyde Park

October, 2018 by colorado29

Be prepared for some steep hills- I was not and ended up walking my bike quite a bit. The trees were in full autumn color and beautiful! The trail was clean and I felt safe alone. Just keep in mind it will be a workout.


Watkins Mill State Park

Scenic Beginners Trail

October, 2018 by briparsons10

Beautiful winding trail around a lake. Hardly any steep hills, great for me, recovering from heart surgery. I love coming here.

Line Creek Trail

Good trail.

July, 2018 by sonnevy60

Good trail for walking with or without your dog,running,biking and family friendly.There’s also another trail across the street that runs all the way to Barry Road.Great place ,just wish people are more conscientious at picking up after their dogs.

Line Creek Trail

Poor signage, great trail

June, 2018 by oldtoolnut

1st time user. Started at Argosy, and went north to the 1st park, then there were no signs or sidewalk marks when the trail gets to the street saying where to pick it up again. I got lost and wasted 30 minutes looking for the trail continuation. This happens every time the trail dumps you at a street. I even had someone at the upper end of the trail ask how to get to the river, and they had the same concern about lack of signage or markings. On the good side, this is a beautiful, well maintained trail - and I very much enjoyed the ride.

Riverfront Heritage Trail

Awesome

May, 2018 by lamborghiniman75

Spent way too long to give this trail a go. Good access from i35. Really a safe looking area at least during the day. Since go there I have gone there weekly to either Skate or jog. I haven't made it up the stairs and over the bridge as of yet though. Only Complaint, they need to add on! Take it past Isle of Capri on the other side of i35, looks easy to do.

Line Creek Trail

Good scenery

May, 2018 by lamborghiniman75

I have Rollerbladed this trail multiple times. They seem to be adding more to it too. Long length good pavement. Several small hills but nothing bad. Always a fun one to go on. Even has a waterfall in the middle and 2 houses are located like actually on the trail which is very weird. But makes the trail more interesting. Even has a cool tunnel.

Weston Bluffs Trail

Close and convenient

August, 2017 by nfoster.750cc

While this trail may not be remarkable in any particular way it was fairly well maintained, nice rolling hills, shaded much of the way by the tree canopy, and perfect for a morning run. While it was not outstanding in any particular way it was free of litter, safe, and a great location on my morning commute for a work out. I gave it 3 stars initially but updated it to 4.

Prairie Creek Greenway

Partially shaded low traffic paved path

August, 2017 by nfoster.750cc

The fairly remote paved running path consisted of small rolling hills and low traffic. At 5:45 on a weekday we passed only four people on our out and back from the south parking lot. We ran about 3.25 miles of the path and it was well maintained and quiet. the south trailhead had a port-o-potty and convenient parking right off of N highway south of Platte City. There were some decent hills in the mix of you are looking to do hill repeats.

Urban Trail (St. Joseph Trail System)

Pickett trail

July, 2017 by tball1285

I rode the part of the trail from Pickett Road to the Noyes parkway by the rec center and back. The ride was very enjoyable and staff at Rec center was very friendly allowed me to get some water and fill my bottles. great section for new riders.
