Columbia Bottom Trail - Missouri River Greenway Description

For nearly 5 miles, the Columbia Bottom Trail meanders through the Columbia Bottom Conservation Area, which features forests, wetlands, and open fields.

The trail is part of the Missouri River Greenway, which will one day follow the river for 50 miles from its junction with the Mississippi River to the western edge of St. Louis County. See the confluence of these two mighty rivers from an observation deck at the trail's eastern end near the Missouri/Illinois border.

Please note that the trail is closed at the end of November each year for deer hunting; contact the Missouri Department of Conservation regarding seasonal closures.

Parking and Trail Access

From I-270, take the Riverview Drive exit and go north for about 2.5 miles to reach the Columbia Bottom Conservation Area. Riverview Drive becomes Columbia Bottom Road; several parking areas with access to the trail are available along this road.

Columbia Bottom Trail - Missouri River Greenway Reviews

Went through the trail, got about a mile in before deciding that it was just too broken, lots of sections that couldn't be traversed with a city bike. Mountain bikes would be better, but still some sections your going to have to walk them.

Very nice area. Paved trail being rebuilt because of flooding. Conservation agent very helpful. Gravel and paved roads to ride but smooth

where is it?

s

not clear where it starts then there are unfinished gravel sections and closed due to flood damage blockage otherwise, it is an awesome unique path cutting through some sloggingly difficult jungle in a place that i have always wondered about.
