Frisco Greenway Trail

Unexpected Fun

October, 2021 by gmsully

A friend suggested riding in Joplin so searched TrailLink to see what we could find. Took a friend, his wife and son up from NW Arkansas on October 10 to explore. The trail reminded us of the Katy Trail with the gravel surface so that started the day just right. With the notes from your site and our GPS navigation, found the trailhead pretty easily. Early morning coolness made this a fun adventure overall. The two things that my riding partners both suggested would make this easier for others would be to see about more signage around the end of the trail about 4 plus miles in as the trail just kind of stopped with out much to identify if we should keep going or turn around. Some nice pedestrians told us we were at the end and were so nice that it really helped us to finish on a positive note then turn around. There was one major street crossing that did not have any lights or devices to have traffic stop for slower riders or children. We had an 8 year old with us so that was a safety concern thta could be easily added. We may be spoiled by all the work in NW Arkansas trails for the local Greenway. Overall, a great morning start before heading over to the Ruby Jack trail.

Ruby Jack Trail

Surprising Jewel!

October, 2021 by gmsully

A friend suggested riding in Joplin so hopped on TrailLink to see what we could find. Ruby Jack sounded interesting and it did not disappoint! Put in at Carl Junction on October 10 and rode to Carthage for about a 25 mile round trip. Cool morning temps helped make this a great trail to explore. I highly recommend giving this a look and have already recommended it to several friends. Just a little over an hour from NW Arkansas so easily reached and lots of food options for post ride nutrition!!! Since I was solo, did not go much past the rough patch going west. Will explore that more in the future!

Indian Creek Bike/Hike Trail

beautiful trail. busy

Rode this and much of the Leawood south loop. The trail along the creek is pretty but on a Sunday morning was really busy. Lots of walkers, dogs, and other bikers. That said it’s close to the house and has some pretty bridges and creek views

Urban Trail (St. Joseph Trail System)

Urban Trail Hyde Park to Krug Park

September, 2021 by acwgdnybbk

We have electric bikes and enjoy checking out all the nearby trails. The Urban Trail in St Jo was great. It is very different from many others we have done. As in previous reviews this trail has a lot of hills so this gave us the opportunity to use lots of gears and PAS options. We enjoyed looking at all the different scenery along the way as we went through park, residential, older and newer areas and lots of squirrels. The whole trail is paved which was nice. The main trail is about 10 miles but there is a side trail to 29 that will add a few more miles to get a longer ride.

Wilson's Creek Greenway

Great trail-poor markings even using Traillink map!

September, 2021 by longellob

We parked at Tal's Trailhead and went North. There were some challenging hills as the path wandered through open pasture and forest. We followed the map from TrailLink and missed the path twice which kind of screwed up our mileage goal! We stopped at Rutledge Wilson's Farm Park...what a treat! Don't pass this stop up. A working farm with opportunity to interact with the goats, mini-ponies and sheep. We started back to ride the South Creek Greenway and realized the beginning of that trail was at the top of a large hill and a bit of the path is on a very busy road. We watched a cyclist navigate the traffic and decided to call it quits! Always enjoy riding new trails and this experience would have been better with trail markings.

Katy Trail State Park

Nice Rail Trail, Decent surface

September, 2021 by stvatandem

We rode this trail from the Daniel Boone Bridge (I-64) to St Charles for lunch at the Bike Stop Cafe. The trail is well maintained and is shaded by trees most of the way. The section adjacent to Greens Bottom Rd is exposed (no shade, except late afternoon). The trail is EASY to follow and is pretty level. The city of St Charles has businesses close to the trail.

Monarch-Chesterfield Levee Trail

Well paved, but no shade

September, 2021 by stvatandem

Started at the trailhead by the Chesterfield Outlets and rode across the Daniel Boone Bridge (I-64). The Levee section was fairly smooth and pleasant to ride on. The morning we rode was cloudy, so the lack of shade was not an issue. Upon our return trip (we rode to the KATY trail across the river), the sun was out and it was getting pretty warm. Since the trail rides on the top of a levee, there are no trees, or any other sources of shade. Bring plenty of water.

St. Louis Riverfront Trail

Nice view from northern bridge. Don't drink the water

September, 2021 by kevinbennett66

Decent ride through industrial area to chain of rocks bridge. Probably worth it, but I ran out of water coming back to the city and used one of the fountains along the trail. Big mistake. Chemical smell in the water and got pretty sick on the way back west. Don't use those fountains!

Beautiful trail!!! Coopers landing was a great stop with yummy food trucks and terrific people watching!

St. Louis Riverfront Trail

What a disappointment!

August, 2021 by ctc7gxzxzg

If you like post-apocalyptic industrial areas, broken glass and litter-strewn highway shoulder lanes and non-existent signage at confusing highway intersections, then YOU won’t be disappointed. But we read the glowing write up of this trail, which doesn’t reflect reality in any way. With the exception of the Arch, the riverfront is sad and ugly. We gave up after riding 10 miles so maybe there’s something attractive at the northern end. 1.5 miles of the trail are closed for construction until at least August 2022.
