Note: The eastern third of the trail, from the access point at Horizons Parkway to the end of the trail, is currently closed (as of June 2016) due to bridge construction. Check the City of Riverside's Trail Status page for updates.
Since opening in 2008, the Missouri Riverfront Trail has become one of Platte County's most popular trails, offering a valuable recreational tool with stunning views of the Missouri River and the surrounding floodplain. Starting from the western end, the first third of the trail is paved asphalt, turning to a gravel surface as the trail moves onto the top of a levee.
Trail users can extend their journey from the trail's eastern end by continuing on the nearby Line Creek Trail, or by visiting the City of Riverside's EH Young Riverfront Park, located a short trek down Argosy Parkway.
Because the trail runs through a floodplain and on top of an operational levee, the Missouri Riverfront Trail is subject to frequent closures due to water levels and construction. Check the City of Riverside's Trail Status page before hitting the trail.
Parking is available at the western trailhead off of NW River Park Drive W (Highway 9). Parking is also available at EH Young Riverfront Park, about a half mile down Argosy Parkway from the trail's eastern end.
To reach the western trailhead from I-635, take exit 9 and head north on Horizons Parkway until you reach Highway 9. Turn left and continue west until you pass Intercon Drive on your left. Turn left at the next (unnamed) street, and follow that street across the railroad tracks, where it ends at the trailhead parking lot.
