Getting Outside in a Time of Social Distance


As the days of social distancing add up in the response to COVID-19, trails are increasingly being counted on as places where people can continue to be physically active and find respite while practicing social distancing. As you plan your trail outing, be prepared that some trails may have limited services, including closed facilities like bathrooms, depots and visitor centers as well as limited or no staff. We encourage you to check the latest public health guidance from the CDC and your local/state governments, as well as the status of your trail, before heading out!

Rock Hollow Trail

Nice Walk in a Valley

March, 2020 by raven3500

My family & I walked the full 2.4 miles both ways. Super smooth asphalt all the way. From the school parking lot it is all down hill so be prepared for an up hill walk back to your car. The trail is in a valley and lined with trees and flowing creeks. It is a fun trail to walk and pretty easy.

Creve Coeur Park Trails

great winter walk

February, 2020 by puetzkl

Lovely paved trail with a view of lake and marsh. Wonderful in the winter when it isn’t too busy.

Blue River Parkway Trail

Primary connector piece to a much bigger trail network

February, 2020 by bikenrun1205

KCMO did this trail well, and it is an important foundational piece. As the Blue River Parkway trail expands, this section already connects the Tomahawk and Indian Creek Trails to the west, and will eventually extend downstream toward the Stadiums, which will connect it with the Henry Wiggins Trolley Track Trail on its way, and ultimately the Rock Island Spur of the Katy Trail State Park. To the south, it will further extend along the Blue River into Johnson County, and eventually networks being built there for the Coffee Creek Trail.

Riverfront Heritage Trail

Good Urban Trail

February, 2020 by bikenrun1205

Nice Trail, not always the best marked. Lightly used.

Rock Island Spur of Katy Trail State Park

Very nice Trail

February, 2020 by bikenrun1205

They are doing this trail right! The current Northern end, which goes through Lee's Summit, is brand new, and very well done suburban trail. The main segment, which goes from Pleasant Hill to Windsor, is well done, and well maintained. We have seen the State on this checking for downed trees, washouts, etc. after storms.

Cannot wait for it to be fully linked to KC!

Little Blue Trace Trail

Nice Local Trail

February, 2020 by bikenrun1205

Years ago, this was my local trail. It is fairly well designed, and long enough to provide a good long ride for the family. Look forward to when this is extended to the Rock Island Trail!

Harry Wiggins Trolley Track Trail

Nice Urban Trail

February, 2020 by bikenrun1205

I have ridden this trail multiple times. The Northern end is quite busy, and there are several crossings throughout, so definitely a recreational trail. The further south you take the trail, the more quiet and remote the trail becomes. Trail crosses a few parking lots in Brookside and Waldo.

I have ridden this all the way to the end at 85th and Prospect, and then continued on to the Blue River Parkway. Will love it when this connects to the Blue River trails someday. The last mile of the trail is rough, overgrown and neglected.

Frisco Highline Trail

There and back

December, 2019 by chandlerkevin

Me and some friends took the trail from Springfield to Bolivar and back Great trail, gives you the feeling you're in the middle of nowhere Ate at the sonic in Bolivar for lunch All good except for the nail I picked up on the big bridge but hey it's better than work any day I recommend this trail it's great Johnny 6 Fingers bicycle club

Frisco Highline Trail

Trail in great shape at least for first 15 miles from Springfield - except for closure

October, 2019 by gwilliams2013

Trail is closed due to road construction 3 miles out from Springfield until late Nov 2019. Parked at Willard Trail Head, rode South to closure, then N to mile 15 and back. Trail is paved from Springfield to 2 miles N of Willard - total of 8 miles paved. Unpaved portion at least to mile 15 was in great shape - smooth, mostly shaded but some open sections. Rolling farmland - peaceful and scenic. Riding on Tuesday afternoon - gorgeous, sunny 72 degree day, only a few bikers/walkers on the paved section, did not see anyone else on the trail for the 14 miles of unpaved section I rode. Restrooms/food/secure parking at Willard. Nice rest area with swing at Conco Quarries and benches/tables at Frisco Trail Mini Storage. City park with large pool about 1 1/2 miles N of Willard Trail Head - pool closed for season but a nice cooling off place if riding the trail in the summer.

St. Louis Riverfront Trail

Hazardous

October, 2019 by giinaringo

Several miles of this trail (just north of Laclede’s Landing) are currently inaccessible due to adjacent construction. The city has not designated any safe detour routes with signage. Even some parts of the trail that are still accessible are unsafe because the path is buried in industrial debris and gravel. It seems like the industrial neighbors treat this trail like their own personal right-of-way. Such a shame given it’s the city’s longest, contiguous off-street route.

Katy Trail State Park

9/23-26,2019

October, 2019 by elliott4

St.Charles West. Just a few detours, trail excellent. If you tent camp at Missouri Fairgrounds Sedalia, be careful of your belongings. Choose any electric site and honestly with the factory across street southeast corner away from vagrants living in tents and away from showerhouse better. Always lock your bikes too.

Katy Trail State Park

Katy trail

September, 2019 by melvinadrian55

Do to flooding the beginning of the trail is not in good shape. If you pick up the trail in St. Charles it is great from there.
