This trail along Richland Creek is in two discontiguous sections that must be accessed separately. The northern section goes by the thick and quiet woods of Centennial Park, where there are also very nice walking paths. The southern section begins in the same woods, then joins the MetroBikeLink Trail for 0.2 mile and separates again to continue southward through Belleville. There it goes through seven different city parks, each with its own features and amenities.
The trail has several bridges and picturesque views of Richland Creek. It's ideal for a family or group outing, a quiet walk or a short bike ride. It is altogether flat except for its one steep rise to the MetroBikeLink Trail. Fishing is allowed at the pond in South Side Park.
To reach the northern trail section: From I-64, take Exit 12 to State Route 159 South. Proceed 4.5 miles and turn left on Route 161 (N Belt E). Proceed 0.4 mile and turn left into Centennial Park. Parking is at the end of a short drive.
To reach the southern trail section: From I-64, take Exit 12 to SR 159 South. Proceed 5.2 miles and turn left on N. Douglas Ave. Proceed 365 feet and turn left into parking at North End Park.
