St. Louis Riverfront Trail

Great training spot

April, 2019 by penelope.gingivitis

I love this trail for two primary reasons:
- there's hardly anyone ever on it
- it has very long contiguous sections that are great for training on my bike.

Grant's Trail

Great trail for biking.

March, 2019 by dsburrows88

An added bonus is the trail passes by the Clydesdale stables at Grant's Farm, and I have seen the young foals come up to the fence on a couple of my rides. This is one of those bike trails that's close to everything but sometimes makes you feel like you're getting away from it all.

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.

Harry Wiggins Trolley Track Trail

A Decent Urban Trail with Many Road Crossings

March, 2019 by kirbyfarren

I bike the Trolley Track Trail to get from the Country Club Plaza to Waldo frequently. The trail surface is similar to most rail-trails, and it can get quite crowded with walkers and joggers on nice evenings. There are also numerous road crossings, so it's difficult to keep up a decent pace. If you're in a hurry you're better off riding adjacent Brookside Boulevard. Overall this is a decent trail for commuting and leisurely weekend rides, but too short, with too many road crossings to make it any sort of destination.

Katy Trail State Park

Thanks

February, 2019 by fredtrunctq

An absolute must for any biker hiker or wanderer to take in. The canopy of trees and trail way tunnel near roachport Missouri is awesome.

Little Blue Trace Trail

Nice trail

January, 2019 by royalsfan1980

Nice relaxing ride when it’s dry. Often sections will be closed after heavy rains for trail repair/ maintenance.

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.

Jefferson City Greenway Trail

great trail

December, 2018 by 61piglet

I ride this trail oft when I work in Jefferson City. It’s accessible and fun!

Katy Trail State Park

Katy Trail State Park

October, 2018 by tdbirch

I had the pleasure to ride this beautiful trail starting in Rocheport, MO riding West one day to Booneville and East another day to McBaine while staying in Columbia for the solar ecilpse last year. Also rode about 8 miles from Mokane heading east...this trail is very scenic and user friendly. I can't speak for the other 200 miles but what I saw was worth the time and minimal effort...even in 90 degree weather!

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.

Urban Trail (St. Joseph Trail System)

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.
