Interurban Trail (MO) Description

Though only half a mile long, the Interurban Trail preserves an important piece of Riverside's history. The paved trail sits in the old grade of the Kansas City to St. Joseph Interurban, a high-speed electric railway that once stretched 79 miles between the two towns. Before roads were paved, the Interurban was the fastest way to connect to the towns in this region. The Kansas City, Clay County and St. Joseph Railway Company was instituted in 1915 and ran for nearly two decades before falling into financial trouble. The line was abandoned in 1933 and adjacent farmers rushed to reclaim the right-of-way. 

The Interurban Trail extends from the St. Joe Boulevard cul-de-sac to a point on Woodland Drive. This little stretch of trail features a double arched concrete bridge that is original to the railroad, as well as historical railroad signs. At the south end, the trail connects to the Linear Trail, another multiuse path that stretches into neighboring Briarcliff.
