The Line Creek Trail is about all you can ask for as a trail lover. This beautifully paved 8-mile trail winds serenely through Platte County and has a little bit of everything for everyone. Traveling north from the southern terminus in Riverside near the Missouri–Kansas border, you will wind through neighborhoods and heavily wooded areas. There are several scenic spots along Line Creek to take a photo, including a beautiful, small waterfall along the creek bank about a mile and a half into the trip.
The trail is quite hilly, so, while short, the Line Creek Trail is challenging for someone looking to get a good walking, riding, or running workout. Many of the nearby residents can be found doing just that; on a beautiful Missouri day, you will see many adults, kids, and pets enjoying the shady Line Creek corridor and its on-trail amenities. The trail offers mile markers along its entire length, and there are several easily accessible trailheads with parking and bathroom facilities at various points along the trail.
As you near the end of the trail, it intersects with North Line Creek Parkway, a neighborhood street. Cross the parkway’s large median and take a right to continue along the last 0.8 mile of the trail; note that the trail’s character will change here and it will look like a wide sidewalk. After about a half mile, the Line Creek Trail intersects the nicely paved Route 152 Trail. Stay straight another 0.3 mile to follow the trail and cross over MO 152 to reach the end of the Line Creek Trail in Kansas City.
To reach the Riverside trailhead at the southern end of the trail from I-635 northbound, take Exit 9 for Argosy Casino Pkwy. Take a left onto Horizons Pkwy. and follow the traffic circle around to the Argosy Casino Pkwy. exit. From the traffic circle, take Argosy Casino Pkwy. east for 1.2 miles to the trail parking lot.
